I had fun trying to invent ways to get Siri to open it. Finally I did it 3 ways consistently. You'll need to spell it and say the letters.

Open w-a-z-e
It also worked leaving the E off during the spelling.....Open w-a-z

I also got it to work by pronouncing it....Open Way Zay

I found that if you say "Woz" and not "Waze" it usually works. I opened a ticket with Apple but...

Finally found the fastest way to open Waze with Siri: Just say "Launch Gas".

"Gas" is part of the App Store name.

You can also spell the name to Siri and it will open the app.

"Siri, Open W-A-Z-E"

EDIT: Oops, didn't realize there was 2 pages here.. Look like my post was redundant! :P

All you have to say is:

"Open sounds like waze"

Thanks for posting this here. Your shorter version, "launch like waze" works perfect for me.
