The icon and the bar both are of quite the same bright grey color.
A solution could be a bi-color design that has at least some kind of contrast in itself even if background transparency is used.

Thank You.


I have the same problem. My Waze icon is white on a light grey backround. However, not all Android versions have a light grey backround. I have version 2.2.2 (Froyo).

Many default ROMs have the notification bar as white or light grey, they will all have this problem. It was not this way in the beta. I don't know why the icon was made monochrome white between the last beta and the play store version. It seems that the icon was changed just for the sake of changing it and now it's much worse for many users.

Please change it back.

Actually we followed Google's documentation regarding iconography, but since you guys are not satisfied with it, we will change it. We'll try to do it for the next official version.

Re: Meetup Texts Not Received

One of them used to get them, but now does not (she uses an iPhone). The other person uses a feature phone. The majority of people I've sent them to get them. I know something is definitely funky though because I tried sending several in a row from Waze along with regular texts, and the regulars get through while the Waze ones did not.

Where are you located? (US/Europe/etc.)

You are right and we are aware of that. It's going to be fixed in one of the upcoming versions.

Quite interesting... For the first time I'm on the receiving part of the "share my drive" feature and some things are quite strange:

I'm in Finland, the text message I got from my friend is in english, but the text on the "Share Drive" Website is in spanish (?).

hello, assuming Play store version is the same as I downloaded yesterday from waze.s3.amazonaws.com

stability is great, running in background had never been so stable.
also overall performance seems to be on very high level.

as I was testing all the betas I'm used to all new design and features.
even one of the last bugs regarding stuck portrait mode seems fixed
smaller things: splash screen (random new/old design), navi bar in landscape too big... UI would need further optimization (menu box size, icons/positions)
new version together with having gas prices and near you now features available - those days are great!

Please share here your feedback about the version (bad and good of course).

Thanks!

Perlin, maybe it would be helpful if you explain reasons and consideration you've taken of UI changes (e.g. scrolling menu, large navi bar) and other changes, which were criticized by beta testers all the time for each beta version; and now by user's of new version.

I personally think that new version is better (excellent stability and performance) than 3.2.2.2, so it is fine to release it. but there is still space for improvement.

There is a bug in the scoreboard.
If Portuguese (Portugal) is set as display language at the scoreboard it will show the Portuguese (Brazil) version instead.

Or maybe Export to somewhere -> Arrange them how you want and Import back in order?

This option will be implemented in a future version.


In the meanwhile it is possible to manually sort the favourites in the history file ;)

I just found out the Android version is missing 'Oil Split' in the Hazard on the Road, compared with the iOS.
Is this a bug?

I found 2 other features not available in Android
1 - Inbox
2 - While at the Main Menu it is possible to return to Map mode by tapping outside the Main Menu

Can you validate this?
