No issue for me with my Lumia 835 preventing from using Waze..

Sorry, I didnt see the date of origin of those threads.

Even so, Waze MUST make an update for an app that was been for 18 months without any upgrade. Google is afraid of MS, and why? they don't have a very reason.

Also notice that it is 18 months old, compared with both the iOS and Android threads that are less than 3 months old. When you look at the android/ios threads over the same time frame:

WP 3.7.6 - 52K views / 18 m = 2900 views/mo

Notice that the Thread for WP is the most commented and the most viewed.
When I first entered in Waze almost 4 years ago in a Symbian phone (Nokia N8). It was at the same level of the other OS.
Then with the end of Symbian it was obvious the lack of support (only whatsapp was been updated frequently).
Moved to WP with a Lumia 930 and finally I had a lot of features I didn't had in the 808... but the same known issues: cant see the messages of the inbox, cant get back my crown as avatar, etc.

Well, I hope that WP10 really can use apps from other OS.
I would use here maps, sadly in my country doesn't show traffic.

Hi. I'm much more than bitterly disappointed.
I had a Lumia 720 with waze properly working.
Now a Lumia 640 XL and I can't accept T's and C's, so no WAZE!
I hope to have good news in a near future.

I'll survive without Waze.
Waze won't survive without users.

Here is their response to a tweet I sent last night enquiring about a new version.

Right now most of our users are on iPhone and Android. If/When that changes we will be happy to update more often

An interesting approach to increasing their customer base.

Well besides for the long suffered bugs in the Windows app, recently I have been unable to process messages in my Inbox in the WP app. I always get "Oops an error has occurred, try again later"

Of course, I could just read them online.... ohh that doesn't work (by design) either. Sigh.

I'm another Android user moving to Windows.
So, I have the same issues with the W8 version of the app. No landscape, and the prospect of no future updates.
If the Android version will work in W10, I'll wait for that, once it has been tested.

Don't Waze own the app and the code? If they posted it to the Windows store somehow, wouldn't that bypass Google and Apple?

Please Waze, let my Windows phone show the app in landscape, by any means.

Yea it doesn't matter that the Android/iOS versions can be easily ported, if Google doesn't want too then they won't do it.
