Get Waze on the Windows Store

Avoid the fake $4 version of waze by "Windows Phone Platinium"
- Looks like Windows has taken down this faker.
Edited to clean up, & update faker info.

Does it really learn preferred routes, or is this just a prompt for a whole new set of WP8 users to start asking why Waze never learns their route? </rant>

Point taken. I just copied the release notes verbatim. I didn't feel it appropriate for me to edit except for grammar.

I could add a footnote...

Did you try entering "prevent lock" into the "Ask a Question" box on the support page (per the OP link above)

First let me thank the Waxe crew for releasing the WP8 Version of waze today!

Dies the WP version lack voice recog for reporting? I can't find any settings for it. I guess I find that odd, because that's singularily the biggest importance to me on this app. It strikes me as an odd feature to lack, considering how well tell-me is integrated into other, less important and lesser apps. I figured voice recog would be a given. :/

is there a timeline for when this feature will be added?


not trying to whine, just expressing concern for a feature. Again thanks! :)

I had never heard of your app before, but just saw on Reddit that this had been released for Windows Phone. It's a great looking app that I'm excited to try out, but I do have one small complaint.

When I hit the "Connect to Facebook" button during initial setup, nothing happened. After setting up, I found that button again in the Scoreboard area, and when I hit it there the button disappeared and I was not provided a way to connect to my Facebook.

My device is a Samsung ATIV S Neo from Sprint with GDR3 installed. Thanks for looking into it!
