New iPhone beta version: 1.7.99.4 [updated]

Postby eshabtai » Mon Mar 29, 2010 10:10 pm

New iPhone beta version - will only work for iPhone beta users.

- New navigation bar, including turn and next turn instructions (visual only).
- New street edit and house numbers bar - when you drive on an a street with no name, a small bar will pop up allowing you to quickly update its name from the client! You can also mark a road and choose to edit its properties or just click on a new on-screen button.
NOTE - actual updating of attributes only works outside the U.S. . You can still play with the UI and we'd appreciate any feedback but any updates will be ignored in the U.S. . We plan to enable actual updates in a day or two.
- Facebook connect - same functionality as twitter (send updates on different events) along with a new invite your friends option.
- Waze review / recommend options - chomp integration!
- Bug fixes and UI improvements.
- Fixed reroute - after a network disconnect (used to fail...)
- Fixed Foursquare parsing error bug

Enjoy and please give us some feedback!

Quick impression:
Seems to be a lot faster?
'Promopt me to edit road info' :)
Glad you removed the bulldozer from the mainscreen.
I like the always visible speedometer.
Chomped you :)
You changed something about the road labels - a big improvement, but still needs some tweaking - city names and major highway/freeway names still have the same font, I would like to see a seperation here (maybe a small border around city names?).

I don't like the new scoreboard, and there's a small bug in it:
When I hit the 'All'/'Weekly' link, it displays another user (for the other 3 combinations it's okay).

How do you install this? I opened the file with itunes and tried to sync to my iphone, but it says "The application "waze" was not installed on the iPhone "Nick's iPhone" because the signer is not valid.

Is this only available to jailbroken iPhones?

I guess I'll just have to wait until it's released to the app store

We post our beta versions here. Who can install them depends on the phone:
For iPhone, only users who have registered to our beta iphone list (and got the confirmation that they are part of the group) can install this version...
For Android, any user can install our beta version as long as they allow "unknown sources" in their phone's settings.

That doesn't seem to work, whatever I do, my review does not show up in the Chomp app or the overview page: http://chomp.com/a/cE9

Also, how is the streetname dialog supposed to work? I can see it appearing while driving around, but it disappears immediately. Is this a bug? Should it only appear when on a street when doing 0mph and the street has no name?

Nope, not before a new Windows Mobile version which is far behind and should be updated first and quickly :evil: ;)
