Windows Phone 8?

Will waze ever come out of beta on WP?

There are rumors google is going to kill off Windows Phone 8 development effort.

Unlikely from a developer POV. They have devs specific to each platform. But the internal testers are not necessarily platform-specific.

To some extent, sure, but as a developer who's coded in 50 different languages, I suspect there are a number of key people who are on the teams for multiple platforms, as they're likely to understand more than one. ;) Even if the "native" underpinnings are exceedingly disparate, much of the higher layers will be similar across the platforms.

That is what they tell us, and what they say over twitter as well. It looks like there are still quite a good number of bugs to fix and some features are not implemented yet. It seems to be taking longer than I would expect. :(

I'm hankering to upgrade from an iPhone to a Nokia 1020, but I don't want to do it without Waze. :(

Me compre un windows phone... Y todo esta muy bien, excepto la gran ausencia del waze :( ¿Noticias al respecto? Cuando tendremos buenas nuevas... Ya 4 meses desde que salio la beta...
