Request: Application to Close Waze

Postby EduardoCarvajal » Sat Apr 19, 2014 1:43 pm

There are many "Rules" applications that let us automate the use of Waze (i.e. On Android: Trigger, Rules Engine, etc.). In my case I use NFC tags to star Waze every time my Phone is connect to my Car, but I cannot define a Rule to stop Waze when my Phone disconnects from my car Bluetooth. It will be very useful if you publish an application that let us close Waze.

Sincerely,

Eduardo.

This workaround works only on Android. I think that we need a Standar way to close Waze, so I keep my request.

Do you mean iPhone as well? Because I don't think Apple allows developers to make an app do that. Only work around would be with a jailbroken iPhone.


I mean Android, iPhone and Windows Mobile. On every platform it's possible that two application exchange information (communicate each other). The two applications must establish a protocol to exchange information. That's the reason I ask to the Waze developer team to give us a special application that Close Waze.

PS. I already implement Close functionality using Tasker for Android, but for me it's a non-natural way to do that.

Quite correct. As of the release of iOS7, iPhone apps are no longer allowed to close themselves. At that time, Waze had to add a "sleep" button to Waze to make it inactive, before the user returns to the home screen. I believe there is a gesture on iOS7 that will close the app - I'm not sure because I'm a luddite, still running iOS6. :lol:
