Afaik, Google Maps were never licensed for Waze-editing?

Don't think about BB. The client for the old OS is outdated, and there is no announcement of a client for the new OS.

Best regards,

Well, from the last post:

"Please create a native app for the BB10/Z10! The existing one (port) is a bit sluggish and buggy sometimes. I would use the app more if it was smoother, faster, and less apt to crash/hang."

I would not make a purchase decision based on this ported app.

If your company buys BB10 and allows the usage of these ported apps, it's the only option. But if you get to decide your phone brand, don't count this app as a pro factor for BB 10.

Best regards,

Use the email from your MS-live-ID in the personal details of your centercode-account. Waze feed the live-ids of the betatesters into the appstore to grant you the permission.

Waze development is now focused on iOS and Android only. They do not have the man power to simultaneously develop for other platforms at this time.

Luckily for you Window Phone is growing so there is a chance that they will find a way to support it in the future. Unfortunately for you, you may be on to a different phone by then.

Results of that cash influx -- editor uses Bing for aerials instead of Google now ;)

Re: How about WP8 then?

The Waze app probably didn't need to be changed for BB10 for the reasons above.
Due to the stupid way WP8 works (Silverlight anyone?) and the numerous restrictions imposed on developers, it might take a while before anything is developed or released, if ever.

Waze on WP8

Postby xyes » Thu Jan 03, 2013 12:18 am

i believe it's a mere speculation of how many Lumia 920/820 & HTC 8X/8S have been sold. being conventionally 2.x% of market share for WP7 & if the reports of sold-outs are true because of its popularity (unlikely, due to some Nokia stronghold markets like Singapore & HongKong have plenty of stocks), it could be well over a million by now since most of them only sold before X'mas.

http://bgr.com/2013/01/02/android-ios-a ... 012-279464

isn't BB version already available even though it's not even 5% of the market? i don't think Waze would need to wait for 10% market share but rather once it's doubled, the significance of WP client is worth developing for... ::fingers-crossed:: i really wanna get rid of my old Android since Lumia 920 will be my main phone & Waze is the only reason i keep that old Android (just to contribute to the traffic info, GPS on Android phones are slower than Nokia somehow) or I should tether my PV808 with Waze although Nokia Drive is still preferred for navigation.
