I'm not confusing anything, I have two desktops running Windows 8, a 12" Asus tablet with Windows 8 Pro, and a Microsoft Surface Running Windows 8 RT, and I will be getting a Nokia 920 running Windows Phone 8. What do they all have in common? They all can run the same Metro apps. I have a USB GPS unit on my Surface and it lets me use the Bing maps app while I am on the go, but I would love to use Waze on it instead.

What is the source of your data?


Right from Microsoft. They sold 40 million licences in the first month alone.

Per Gartner's data linked above, Android and iOS are 86.3% of 3rd Quarter 2012 sales. If you had limited resources and have to pay developers to develop software are you going to develop for the operating system with 72.4% of sales or 2.4% of sales?


Well given that not a single Win8 Phone existed in the third quarter, this data is useless. The Windows phones shown in those stats are all the old Win7 phones. Now that there are millions of Windows 8 devices including tablets, laptops, and phones out there, it makes sense to start looking into a Metro Waze client.

I too would love to have Waze on Windows 8/RT. I picked up a Surface tablet last month and the only time I still use my Android tablets is for Waze. Oh well my phone still runs Windows Mobile 6 so I can still Waze on that for now.

Also supporting Nokia here!

The only thing I need now is Waze on Windows Phone 8.

Please guys! The market for WP8 is growing!

Hope to see the app on the market place soon.

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.

Microsoft should really toss them some funds to do this, I'd like to give Windows phone 8 a go, but not without waze...
