    Just quit working, open & it immediately closes.

    Doesn't work. Can only mark check boxes with no place to enter app. Only option is to exit or sit at start screen. I heard this was a great app but ...

    Most accurate and adaptive navigation I have used.

    Ok guys, here's a comment from reddit. First off, I already know that Waze isn't currently updating the Windows Phone app. I still use Waze, because I still haven't managed to find any alternatives that I prefer. Today, I submitted a bug report to Waze regarding a minor issue I'd encountered with the app. I was immediately greeted with an auto-reply email containing the following passage (emphasis mine). "New versions of the Waze app are not currently optimized for the Windows Phone platform, since the vast majority of Waze users are on iOS or Android devices. We are monitoring the Windows Phone install rate and will certainly reconsider if there is significant uptake." Conclusion: We're all frustrated that Waze isn't maintaining their WP app. If you want them to change that, the best thing you can do is just install the app. If nobody's downloading/using it, we can hardly fault them for concluding that maintaining the app isn't worth the investment.

    Used to be the best navigation app. I'm sure it's still the best, unless you have a windows phone. On my phone it crashes before it starts

    Works but desperately needs an update

    Current version is now a year old and is not working well with Waze servers. Constant crashing and GPS signal loss, and can no longer see messages from other Wazers. Disappointed to see what was once a great app, crash and burn.
