You can also spell the name to Siri and it will open the app.

"Siri, Open W-A-Z-E"

EDIT: Oops, didn't realize there was 2 pages here.. Look like my post was redundant! :P

Finally found the fastest way to open Waze with Siri: Just say "Launch Gas".

"Gas" is part of the App Store name.

I found that if you say "Woz" and not "Waze" it usually works. I opened a ticket with Apple but...

I had fun trying to invent ways to get Siri to open it. Finally I did it 3 ways consistently. You'll need to spell it and say the letters.

Open w-a-z-e
It also worked leaving the E off during the spelling.....Open w-a-z

I also got it to work by pronouncing it....Open Way Zay

I always do, but like it has been happening lately, Waze crashed on me and im already driving. Hence the need to reopen the app

If you're jailbroken there is an app in Cydia called SiriLove. It recognizes Waze as default GPS.
So you can open Waze directly, or you can ask for directions and Siri will open Waze by default.
