Foursquare Integration – We’re super excited to announce our integration with Foursquare, a popular new location-based geo-gaming app that’s getting a lot of buzz. Users of both apps can now ‘check in’ to various locations on Foursquare via the waze client – a feature that’s we hope you’ll really like! If you’re not already familiar with Foursquare, you’re definitely gonna want to check this one out…
‘Road Goodies’- As you know, waze recently added ‘road goodies’ – small icons worth bonus points – and the just-released holiday version features adorable wintery ‘road goodies’ including snowflakes (worth 50 points) and candy canes (worth 100 points), scattered all over the map.
Holiday Treasure Hunt – We also have a holiday treasure hunt running, where little treasure chests scattered around the map will open to reveal real-world prizes! (See the next blog post for more details…)
Multiple Language Support – And last, but not least, the new holiday version also includes Spanish and Italian support, both on the client interface as well as the audio navigation prompts. These translations were fully undertaken by waze community members, and we’re turning to the rest of you to help out with the waze translation project. Check out the waze Wiki for more information on how to get involved. We’re currently working on Bosnian, Czech, Dutch, Finnish, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Russian – but feel free to add any language that you wanna be wazing in!
