Feature Request: Tapping the "Thanks" button should close the report window.

If I'm tapping the "Thanks" button, it means I read the report. Why would I still want to see it? If I don't want to thank, that's when I'd actually tap the close ("X") button in the upper right corner.

I found that Waze has troubles with network, especially when Waze is running and we switch off Wifi. Device goes to GPRS, but Waze seem to have problem to switch to GPRS network.
We can see data flow running correctly on device while Waze do not find network.

Why? I admit it could be convenient...

I still may want to comment on it after thanking. If it was an automatic popup from far away along my route, I may be not able to find it on the map anymore.

After thanking, the auto-closure countdown could be lowered to, say, 5 seconds.

If you want to comment tap on comment button then thanks !

Actually, the report is lost !

Reported several times in forum, questionnaire and even at meetup, that the client has to remember all reports until they are sent successfuly and we mentioned situations where the network is not available on bad signal reception or during phone call when the old GPRS connection type is interrupted. I am pretty sure that the HQ is aware of it and the only information we miss from them now is when it will be implemented. ;)

I know that... But till they don't give an answer, we need to repeat again and again the same requests !

When we take a picture with Waze (for a trafic jam report by example), I would like that Waze use a dedicated folder to store the pictures or name the pictures with a dedicated name, like waze_xxxxxx.jpg.
Actually, pictures are stored with camera pictures, and it is boring because pictures taken with Waze are no longer usefull after the report is sent.
Maybe Waze could have a feature to delete the pictures it manage.

Still have sometimes a network error, while data are still transmitted.
On the picture, you can see that there is a network trafic. Only Waze detects a network error... That is amazing !

I was in the one lane road according to the red arrow.
My speed was low, about 10..15 km/h. The road speed is 90 km/h.
I never get a pop-up request like "Are you experiencing a trafic jam ?" I think this kind of request is only when we are stopped.
Maybe Waze can be imrpoved is this case.

To reproduce :
1) Tap on bottom right button and select Map chat (see arrow 1)
2) Let the countdown reach 0. The unset map chat comes to map screen (see arrow 2)
3) Tap again on bottom right button (see arrow 3)
--> Map chat is deleted !

Should have a true button for that !

That is another story. On Android, Waze apparently attempts to mimic iOS' buttons on the upper left/right corners of dialog windows. But the attempt is just half-baked :evil: usually a button consist of at least some border, which highlights its (clickable) area (rectangular, elliptical, circular, whichever) and some description text inside. iOs' buttons are additionally e.g. gray on a black title bar area. Waze buttons ... can be just guessed :twisted: one can see only its description text. And if these buttons get also scrolled up above the dialog area :roll:

Waze, please, modify these buttons ASAP! It is sometimes really a pain to notice them (especially after reading some texts down to the dialog's bottom, to finally confirm them)!

Argh ! Android is not IOS... If I wanted an IOS system, i already bought it !
And if I own an Android system, it is because I don't want an IOS !
IOS is opposite to Android. So, Waze, please do a good job on android and what you want on IOS.
Give us good screen interface and not poor pop-up or ballon, on which we need to have a little finger, a good eyesight and a big brain storm to understand how it works !

Don't forget that we use Waze while we are driving in our vehicule... Informations should be simple to read, understand and use !
