New iPhone beta version: 1.5.9.4

Postby The Fej » Tue Jan 19, 2010 10:16 pm

The new beta version has a big performance improvement which should also improve the battery consumption. You can pick it up from
http://waze.s3.amazonaws.com/client/versions/iphone/1.5.9.4/adhoc_1.5.9.4.ipa
As usual, we'll be grateful for feedback.

It appears to hang for me. I started it, and then tried to open the version dialog. It said 'seeking gps' and did not respond. It seemed to freeze for about 30 seconds. Then it updated a lot of the user interface all at once, including displaying the about dialog.

The new zoom in/out animation is pretty slick. :)

Sometimes when I go to the report screen, and then press the back button, the animation is rather odd. It will scroll the upper menu bar to the right first, then pause a second, then scroll the lower screen portion to the right.

For those of us that haven't rooted their iPhone whats the typical turn to between these betas getting released and making their way to Apple submission? Understanding their additional and unpredicable time for Apple to release to app store.

As you said, it's unpredictable. I've seen it take a couple days, and I've seen it take a couple weeks.

You do understand that waze has some beta testers that aren't bypassing the authentication, right? ;)

I understand, but in all honesty why would you want a device that is locked to the bone where you can't do what you want with it? Also Waze on the app store is really far behind and this beta is a major improvement... I would be stupid if I went back to the appstore version lol... Plus the more people using the beta the faster they fix bugs and get enhanced features ;) am I right? We want all the bugs worked out and we want more features!!! :)

Just updated and so far looks good. It is very easy to move around the map now. Zooming in and out is zippy and looks nice. I like that now you can see who can be pinged with an symbol above there waze icon.

I don't know if they are still accepting beta users. You can try and emailing alpha@waze.com and request to become one.
