People use this for DRIVING not for social life. I do know it's a FREE app, but come on - if nearly all the above would be true I and probably a lot of other people would be HAPPY to pay for it! Please give us a usable app which rocks all the others!Jpere wrote:What is the point of having beta testers if you're going to ignore their feedback? Unbelievable.
I would like to comment about these statements. First of all, we don't ignore your feedback. As many users (especially the beta ones) can safely say, we take under account everything you have to say, ask for your honest thoughts, sometimes even consult you and eventually change things (of course not all things) according to your suggestions. You are our most valuable asset and we take you and your comments very seriously.
Secondly, true, waze is a navigation app, but it is a community-based, social navigation app. The whole social aspect is the extra value of the app and what differentiates us from others. That doesn't mean we put the navigation aspect aside and focus only on the social part of things. Not at all. Were always working on improving things- navigation wise, stability wise, connectivity wise. PLUS we always try to think innovatively and refresh the design. We take ALL of your comments, requests and suggestions under consideration and try to implement them. Of course things can't be done by flicking a switch. It takes time and a lot of thought and effort to design and build features and make changes.
And one last thing, if you don't like the integration with FB, you can always choose not to connect.
Really, I mean really.
You have ignored all and any suggestions from beta feedback. You have pushed to the market inferior product that crashes more often than any previous version.
Common girls. Investors are waiting for results.
