Adds event addresses automatically
Social-based navigation service Waze has released an updated iOS app, v3.7. The focus of the upgrade is on Facebook events integration; signing into Facebook will now automatically populates the navigation list with addresses for event RSVPs, saving the need to enter them manually. Along similar lines, the app can now also display friends headed to the same event or destination. A bar with friends will appear on the right side of the screen, in the order of their expected arrival. Tapping the bar presents more detailed ETA information.
Smaller changes include real-time and offline "beeping" at friends, redesigned pop-up alerts, and JVC App Link Mode support. Access to the inbox, Foursquare check-ins, and a three-state mute button have been added to the main menu, and map editors have been given access to three new moods: 8-Bit, Robot, and T-Rex. The Waze app is a free download, and includes native iPhone and iPad interfaces.
