Just installed on my AT&T SGS3 and everything seems to be fine...
Love the new navigate icon and the fact that 4sq checkin is back! Thanks! :)

Recommendation: When ending a trip, is it possible that the "stop" hand icon at top would turn into a "quit" after the navigation is stopped? It starts doing basically nothing and it would be great to be able to double-tap the stop to stop nav and quit waze.

We lost the magic "Wundebaum" from the "navigate to" menu button! Of course... fine!

The new night mode is a huge improvement over the test schemes in the previous betas. I like it!
The new share my ride/location menu is great too!
The new Navigate icon is nice too, though with that one being nicely colorful, the other icons look a bit pale 8-)
So great work!

On the downside:
In portrait mode: the menu only uses half of the screen, so I need to scroll where that's really not needed.

In landscape mode a traffic report or other road event balloon - being an auto popup at stand still or after selecting it from the report menu - is still shown in the middle of the screen, with the actual map that shows what's happening behind the text balloon. Please make the balloon display on the left and the map on the right or something.

New menu isi too small and we need to scroll in portrait mode to access bottom buttons.
It was better on previous beta.

Looks good. The first thing I try is the configuration menu. What I notice is that in the Screen menu )2D / 3D) and the Modus menu (Auto/ night/day) there is no button in the menu which shows which choice is active. Which looks a little bit strange. Some popups has a check button, but some has not.

Where did the Test color scheme go? Liked that. Is it an idea if you select a scheme that a picture is shown how it looks like. Now I must return to the main screen before I see it.

I could not find the night scheme's as promised in the announcement.

In the Yours account info, it is translated (in Dutch) as "Jou account" That is bad Dutch. It should be "Je account" or "Jouw account".

Like the layout in the share menu. But when I share my my drive I got again that Waze has stopped as in the previous betas. But to my surprise it restarted automatically. Ok, better then nothing. I've send the log files around 21:10 local time.
When I take a look at the shared drive, the screen looks good, but the waze logo is not the monster logo ;-) (not really important, but I'm proud of my monster mode).

In the announcement it is stated that I can choose monster mode. But that is not in the list. Is this because it already active?

Like the layout of the buttons in the main menu. The less needed ones are not in view if there is no need of them. The importans ones (Close down/afsluiten) are there.

Recently installed at the moment does not do anything weird, I like how they have changed the menu buttons, back button of 4square ... I try leaving work with long travel, hopefully not crashes hard as the previous beta version

haven't been driving with it so far...
installed over .110 - OK

had a crash which I was able to reproduce 3 times. so the scenario:
navigate->categories->gas station->pick any->more->show on map->crash
logs sent around 21:08 GMT+2

menu boxes, both portrait and landscape, are too small and therefore it is need to scroll. get rid of the scrolling in menu, please!

gold and bronze moods have same icon

after starting client, nearby wazer box appeared, when i touched it, it brought me somewhere 6000 km away (map chat told me). maybe just one time error...

wazer's popups still behave different than all other popups (no "X" button, not closing using phone's back button, overlaying of different kind of popups, popups off the screen).
popups overlay:

when posting map chat, window is resizing after keyboard is opened and then after T9 bar appears, but then there are glitches just above the T9 bar:
