And we'll continue to ask, demand, beg, holler, scream, shout and stamp our feet for it, until someone at Waze HQ takes an executive decision to make the coding team focus exclusively on features and functionality of genuine importance to a satnav client, rather than continuing to bloat it out with puff and eye candy and social networky-type crap that only serves to get in the way.
Just this morning, driving along a fairly busy country lane, 60mph limit and semi-blind bends, I came round one bend to find a car parked backwards in the hedgerow with another car parked next to it blocking half the road... exactly the sort of incident that calls for a Waze accident report. Unfortunately, having filled out the details and tapped the send button, I was then filled with a sense of impending doom as the phone screen was filled with the spinny Waze Wheel of Impending Failure, and sure enough about 30 seconds later I was greeted with the all too familiar error message containing it's almost always useless suggestion to try again later. Sure Waze, why don't I do that, why don't I wait for your flakey network code to re-establish a link to the rest of the world, and then send a fresh report about an incident which is now miles away...
Please please PLEASE Waze, announce a freeze on all new feature development and spend the time and effort necessary to fix what we all know is broken in the existing code. Once the core functionality is working as it should do, then by all means layer on as much shiny shiny as you want, but until the core is fixed it's a slap in the face to all dedicated users each time you announce yet another new feature without doing anything about the long-standing problems we continue to face every time we use the client.
