NOTICE: Popups and event radius notification

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sun Apr 07, 2013 7:53 pm

At this time, the following are known and expected behavior related to popup notifications in the app. Please do not post about "issues" if they are the same as what is posted here. This is not specific to a version of the app as the popups are controlled by the servers.

  • If you receive a popup notification while in motion, then that is a Group Popup setting you have enabled in the App.
  • When stopped, expect the following:
    • Only 4 popups will appear
    • Popups for friends online will appear at this time
    • Popups for nearby nearby paid advertisements will appear at this time.
    • If you select to see events on your route only, the popups will be displayed up to 100 km away on your route.
    • If you have any other radius value selected, a popup will be displayed for events up to 10 km away.

It's not an Android bug. If there is a bug, it's in the back-end. I don't get popups most of the time on iOS either. The situation is either 1) Perlin explained the situation incorrectly, 2) The situation is different now than when Perlin explained it before, or 3) The code is bugged and doesn't behave as the developers expect.

Same here, FWIW. Android 4.1.2 on Samsung Galaxy S3. No popups since 3.6, still unchnaged in 3.7.2. Also same as noted before, it *seems* it's trying to display them but the only visible activity is a short zoom out and in.

The pop-ups still don't work for me.

I have it sent to show All Pop-ups, not just the ones for my group, and when I am stopped the map zooms out as if to show me some Popups and then nothing happens.

Anyone else experience this?

The pop-ups when stopped does actually appear. They just disappear very quickly as well, so if you want to see them, you need to be quick. I guess this is from all the complaints.
The moment you start moving again, they also disappear.
On Android, they appear as a left right swipe-able popup, typically with 3 items from what I could see.

I have been a waze user for some time now and in the top 250 in my area. I have been having trouble with waze so deleted and reinstalled. NOW, even tho I have selected events on my route only, I am not only getting ALL events (I was informed of police 60 miles away!) they are popping up while driving. Constantly. Also, can't get rid of the"spotlight" effect. Suggestions?
PS: Using iphone5. Which, by the way, is apparently not a "valid device" because I tried sending this to the Waze team and it wouldn't go through, got the error message "please enter valid device". Thanks.

Is this the bug with group notifications, where the spotlight won't go away and the map can't be controlled? I've had to turn off group notification because of this.
