but you need to have a facebook account...

How can we check-in with fousquare without that damn' Facebook :evil:


Have no idea what are you talking about. Just disabled facebook and the foursquare icon continues on the same place and working. What is really failing for you?

DO NOT LIKE. What took three taps now takes five.


It still takes three taps if you are driving, only five if you are not using waze to navigate, which is IMHO a weird thing to do with a navigating app ;)

Did you mean "Why doesn't Apple fix this?" Waze was pointed to the API flag to change, we need to give them the benefit of the doubt that they may have tried it, but the iOS API may be broken and not do as expected. I'd suspect that because I doubt that with so many apps behaving the same no developer have noticed that change.

I'll remind that the issue only happens in very particular cases where the apple maps is too far away from the reality, which may be more problematic on recent roads that may have changed their location and Apple Maps are still not up-to-date.

It's not a critical flaw, it's a changed behavior on the API that can be reverted back with a flag, and affects all apps that uses location and were not aware of the new API flag, but you are right Waze does suffer everytime the Apple maps deviates from the real world :mrgreen:

The jailbreak guys are the ones that need to take care of not breaking other apps. It still pisses me off how jailbreaking a device can break something as simple as the weather app. (note: i've only jailbroken my device so I can run Waze beta on my new device, I haven't installed nothing else. Ok the SSH access also simplifies the tweaking of the files, as it's faster to just vim the files than use iExplorer ;) )

Those are only the automatically created reports by waze when traffic is detected and AFAIK it's been acknowledge, is indeed a regression, and should be fixed in a later version.

I see random behaviour. Beep Beep not arriving at all. Private messages sometimes goes to inbox directly without popup, some are fast, some are quite slow, some are lost. Send ten in a row and see the behaviour on the other side :(

Say you have a road segment named "to blah". In the past TTS would say "turn right at blah" for that segment.

What is it doing now? "turn right to blah" or "turn right at to blah"? Or did I misunderstand?


The "to" prefix is a setting on the preferences file, maybe something went wrong with the settings on your country? Can you access your preferences file on your device (use iExplorer or whatever is equivalent for your OS) and check this line on the preferences file:

Thanks for reporting. Can you say exactly what kind of popup are these? What do they say (don't understand the language..)?


It's the "need to download Lang pack" at first start. It happens when rotating to landscape. I've reported this one on the beta thread.

Yet another bug to be fixed ;) You've logged in *once* with your account on your wife's device and now Waze backend still has her Push-UDID on the list to be pushed. :(


Indeed, it used to by my phone.

This is kind of like the bug apple had when iMessage was introduced in iOS 5. I wonder if the current owners of the two iPhone 4's that I had changed under warranty get Waze push intended for me too?
