Would rather this was available in the map editor and for both closures and for high occupancy lanes or traffic overflow lanes.

The closure feature is needed and highly desired. The implementation is a good start, but it is in need of some redesign:
  1. The arrows to select are too small
  2. The number of steps to submit are too numerous
  3. The effectiveness of selecting only a single segment from where I am right now to "close" is too limited
  4. The icons in both the bubble and in the full popup need to match the icon selected in the report (Hazard, Construction, Event). (This is simple UI consistency rules.)
  5. Something in the wording needs to make it clear this is a Closure. Hazard and Construction are also other report types.

The location of the closure is inconsistent. Sometimes, I would say just the name of the road I selected to close. Other times, it would say the name of the road I tapped Report from and not the segment which was closed:

Image

In the report above, I reported the closure from SW Clark Hill Rd, but the segment which I selected for the closure was Scholls Ferry Rd. "SW Clark Hill Rd" should either not appear or it should read: "Scholls Ferry Rd near SW Clark Hill Rd."

And, as noted in my list above, I believe different icons for Hazard, Construction and Event should be used in the popup alert.

This afternoon/evening, I had a bad time with this beta and the closure feature. You may get bored reading this. :)

After leaving work I test closed a segment on my drive and it seemed to work ok. I then test closed another segment a little later. This time, though, I had to start driving and so left the report to timeout on the Later timer. It collapsed into a small moving icon on the right side of the screen as I'd expect.

What happened next was unexpected: I tapped the icon to bring the report back up and this is how the screen looked:
Image

We've seen this type of thing happen with the interface before, with full-screen size icons. Never got it to repeat before. With the closure report, it is repeatable.

Notice that the Construction button is depressed. I didn't do that. I hadn't tapped anything. It came up that way.

Next, I tapped either the X or Back button, most likely the close button, and my screen changed to this: (Click for native image)
Image

In that small version of the screen in the middle, Waze was operating. I could pan the map and I think I may have even been able to tap a button. At some point, the interface restored, but I don't recall how that happened.

After that small-screen thing happened, any time I tried to report a road closure, no arrows would appear on segments to select:

Image

I tried many times to get it to work again, but nothing would work. I had to stop Waze and start it up again. After that, the arrows on the Closure selection screen worked again. Logs submitted at 1:18AM 2013-02-08 (5:18PM local time)

After logs were submitted, it happened again, with the Later timeout (note the changed time compared to the first one above):

Music playback bug has returned.

1> Waze on and music playing through the car stereo. Stop in trip comes up, so hit home button to get out of Waze (as opposed to exiting) and lock phone.

2> Trip resuming, so plug phone back into car stereo. Music playback automatically begins.

3> Hit Waze icon to get back into it. Hasn't been long enough for it to automatically exit. But after the app comes up it pauses music playback. No amount of hitting pause/play on the car stereo will start it playing again.

4> Exit Waze. Music playback automatically starts again without any further user interaction.

5> Curse at Waze, optionally giving the phone the finger.

6> Fire Waze back up, and witness music playback happily continue this time. *sigh*

Share my location - doesn't work. Icons are not clickable. Share my way - works.

Also in previous beta I didn't saw FB friends on the map often. I saw them in Friends list, saw them on-line, saw even on live map (share my way), but not in app map...

Also there is a constant bug with timing in friends list - all friends that connected more than several hours ago are shown as month ago.

Also waze crashed once. Logs were sent just now.

Okay, this is crazy. It looks like the Dev team enabled the menu config for all instead of just in beta-test. And since the functionality seems to work just the same in 3.5.3, the code was actually in 3.5.3, but the menu config wasn't there. And if they want everybody to not be using this right now, they should be changing the menu config.

I have sent a DM to waze on Twitter, since they slapped my hand yesterday posting about the new feature being available. Turns out they were the ones to actually let everyone start using it under the current release 3.5.3.
