Waze's latest update now live
Waze, a community-based traffic and navigation app, released its newest version yesterday. The crowd-sourcing method of mapping traffic conditions and cheap gas station locations has been improved predominantly in terms of its search function. Google Search has become the default search provider, and is now at the forefront of the main map screen. Auto-complete has been added, and is to be made public in the upcoming weeks. Lastly, the map format has been simplified, grouping duplicate condition reports together. Version 3.7.3 of Waze is available for both Android and iPhone.
