Okay, I expected UI polish before the release, but alrighty... It's looking okay on my device, but seems a lot of other devices it's not.

But stability on the .130 beta was good, presuming this is the same/better it should hopefully at least be stable... Although UI still has some issues.

Good news!

Will test ASAP to see if these issues http://world.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=30517&start=50#p276862 have been solved.

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!

This is because you're driving and/or bad coverage from your carrier

Verzonden met Tapatalk op mijn Samsung Galaxy Note(GT-N7000).

Absolutely not, the coverage is perfect the other app works fine, only waze and only this version. In the same places, with the previous version I never had any problems.

Crash with animated background.
Please! Please! Add option to enable pop up only on my route in navigation mode.
Or give them priority, putting a purple border.
Too often "no network connection".

Praise and Stack Issues

Postby serick224 » Tue Nov 06, 2012 6:47 am

Well done on a quick fix to the "share my drive" URL link. And bravo on this feature in general :D; it has blown away two friends of mine already. One thought it was "creepy" that somebody else can know "exactly" where you are, while the other felt like James Bond popping out from the bushes when he saw that I was 1 minute away and found me driving up to meet him.

This morning I got Waze into a state where pressing the launcher icon from the home screen would bring up Android's built-in SMS "Messaging" app instead of Waze :!: Being a developer, I know this has something to do with the back stack. I had previously sent a "share my drive" link via text messaging. I don't know the details of how you guys manage the stack, but please look into this, as it gives the impression that Waze isn't launching for some reason and is broken.

PS before I realized what was going on I manually killed the app and cleared its cache, neither of which did anything. I finally fixed it by pressing the launcher icon (which brought up Messaging) and pressing the "back" key on my phone. If I remember right, that kicked me back to the home screen. I could then re-launch Waze normally.

Pickup Woes

Postby serick224 » Sat Nov 03, 2012 3:31 am

The one time I tried pickup, it did not seem to work. Here's what I did:

1. Put in the address where the person I was picking up was at and starting navigating to it
2. Sent the "I want to pick you up" text (it's too long btw)
3. Partway through my drive I got a popup saying something about my pickup request being acknowledged with the options 'Drive' and 'Later'.
4. Chose 'Drive'
5. Nothing happened as far as I could tell. It didn't say my destination had changed. I didn't actually find out if it had stealthily changed my destination or not though, because I canceled navigating while trying to find pending "pick me up requests" (to no avail).

Meetup Texts Not Received

Postby serick224 » Sun Nov 25, 2012 2:48 am

I've noticed something quite odd: at least two different people I know of do not receive my "share my drive" texts. 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.

:?: :?:

On a slightly related note, is there a way to close all the windows that pop up at once? While sending a meet up text I can get 3 - 4 windows deep, and clicking the small 'x' or pressing back that many times while driving is dangerous.

Interface is so... iPhone! >:(

Postby saggitas » Thu Nov 01, 2012 12:13 am

it's so iPhone-y! why the rounded corners? is it that ugly to fill up the screen? and where's the Holo UI / UX interface?

the Default map colours look good, especially during night mode, when the highways glow. the driving experience is excellent as always. keep it up!
