Waze for Windows Phone 8

Postby hailstorm » Wed Nov 07, 2012 5:09 am

At present I have exactly 0 navigation programs on my HTC 8x. Really hope Waze reconsiders support for Windows Phone now WP8 is out.

I'm an iPhone user who's seriously considering a switch to Windows 8 Phone (Nokia's Lumina 920). Waze is a favorite app, but not something I would "lock into" iOS for.

If it's anything like Windows 8,it won't work properly anyway. Stick with what you have lol

Seriously though I've not heard anything about Wazes plans for WP platform, currently its just android and iOS because of the market share.

I've been using Windows 8 for a while and I've been using a Lumia 920 for a few days. Please qualify what you mean by "it won't work properly anyway". I've used Waze for my iPhone for a while and i'd love to see it on WP8.

He's just being facetious.

It may come in the future if WP8 shows any signs of breaking the duopoly but waze for WP is not currently expected.

Too bad Waze for WP8 isn't on the cards. iPhone (5 even) are at least a year behind everyone else in terms of product development, and WP8 is just fantastic (especially the Nokia Lumia 920).

As others on the list, I'm ditching my hugely disappointing iPhone 5 for the Lumia 920. Fortunately, it comes with Nokia Maps, so all is not lost. I will miss Waze though, it's my favorite iOS app... and is vastly better than anything else on the platform.

Well, the maturity of iOS can be judged with different criteria. Concerning MDM and data protection, iOS maintains its advantage of 1-2 years ahead of Android and Windows Phone 8 with constant improvements in these areas.

However, we might switch to Windows Phone 8 if the advantages in office- and sharepoint integration measure up with the disadvantages of a more difficult deployment on Windows Phone 8. That's a fleet of appx. 350 devices, 18 of which have Waze installed (counted by our MDM).

Losing Waze would be bad, but it's not our top priority when it comes to platform selection.

Best regards,

I can only speak for myself, but I'm switching to WP8 as soon as my Lumia 920 arrives. I'll miss my waze a bit, but I'll grow out of it. And, I'll have to add, once they've lost me as a user, I'm not coming back.

If they don't care for their customers, I don't want to use them. Simple as that. You can only lose me as a user once.

But you're the one changing platform and phone...
I don't see how that is Wazes fault or problem.

Oh, they will see, they deinitely will.

Arrogance only hurts companies and services. And communities. They might think they're so important that they force people to choose Android or iOS, but I'm pretty sure they'll find out they're not.

They don't have to care about my choice, but then again can they afford losing users? They think they do, I disagree.

I can live without waze, can they survive without users?
