Waze for folks over 50.

Postby a4bolek » Mon Mar 11, 2013 12:07 am

From previous responses to beta and Play Store versions it is obvious that majority of Waze users are less then 20 years old. I can see pimples on your foreheads from 3 feet away. :D but i cannot focus any closer. :cry:

For folks over 50 I recommend Paranoid Android. On the fly you can change how various Waze elements display on your screen. Let's start with Wazer on the road.

Wazer on the road at 200 dpi.

Last but not the least Paranoid Android offers full screen for all the aps. In case of Waze that is 18 pixels at the top and 40 pixels at the bottom. That is between 10% to 20% more depending on your screen resolution.
