    Waze is disappointing on windows phone, constantly on recalculating screen whilst following route. Worked perfectly on iPhone!

    Cant download new voices, other than that almost perfect 👍

    Update: Search the store for Navmii. Great alternative to Waze with far better support and features for WP :) Can't login to social networks and needs landscape mode. Apart from that its OK, better on android though 😁

    Not bad, but guess what - its not as good as the ios version. There are probably boring technical reasons as to why Windows phone apps are always slightly sub standard but its very frustrating .. Anyway, this also OBLITERATES the battery in my 820 in no time at all.

    Unfortunately I'm unable to enjoy this app because it crushes upon launching.... Needs an update.

    Fantastic crowd sourcing traffic app. Just wish more people used it so that the traffic was more accurate. Some minor bugs, such as the random forever "recalculating route" glitch that need sorting.

    Excellent

    Just moved from android, after some initial difficulty logging in (some Screens don't fit on Lumia 930, needs some tweaking here), pleased to see it's as good. Great work.

    Kept calculating route all the way to work even though route was there with voice directions. Sort this and I'll try again. But for now.. Thanks but no thanks!

    Freezes on calculating and recalculating screen, please fix.
