I don't have that problem with any other company.

I'm down to one star on the market for waze. The next step will be hitting the deinstall button 'any day now'.

I too was hoping 'any day now' would have been quicker than 2 weeks away.

Ahhh, that explains it. I haven't read through the entire thread, but the only instability I've noticed has been a phone re-boot if I make/receive a call while waze is running. This was noted in another thread, and I've got a debug log ready to send in to the devs. We just took a trip from Indiana to Washington, DC, and didn't experience any shut downs with waze running the whole way.

Thanks for the insight!

I also get irritated about how the iPhone is given priority over everything else when it comes to upgrades. It's not just Waze, it's many other companies too. I'm very anti-iPhone (I think it's simply overpriced, overrated and over-loved, but don't get me started on that), but with Android rapidly gaining market share and overtaking the iPhone in some markets, things may change in the future.

ditto.

Well they just submitted new iPhone app to appstore and said that would take about ten days and we would see new Android version soon after that. Man I wonder what the actual breakdown of platforms is for Waze. I can't believe there are that many less Android users that we will get an upgrade (who knows if it will be the full deal or have the must have new features missing) after two major iPhone releases. :(

Oh well hopefully in next two weeks New Android release, I was hoping any day now but at least there is something more tangible!

I've noticed that they rearranged the list of platforms in updated beta references, and while it looks like we got the second most recent update (iphone first of course), .106 was an incremental bug fix which was helpful but didnt intro the hyper social features most other platforms have, and we are still in 1.8.xx tree as opposed to 1.9.xx.

No major complaints here but I just wanted to highlight that and maybe this recent reshuffling is a sign of a imminent update? Man I am a loser!

Great update krankyd! Thanks!

I have an X10 that is just waiting for the goodness of a new Waze Beta!

Between waiting for new Waze Beta and working Bootloader to run CM6/Froyo/2.2, I am going crazy!

The problem with swype is due to a problem with Swype, and not waze (confirmed by swype - the delete has a problem in other applications as well).
Next version will support native text box integration, and should resolve this issue as well.


I'll look forward to it. FWIW the minor release 1.9.0.101 does seem more stable than 1.9.0.0 on my Desire. Not infallible, but does tend to keep going on my 20-mile trip to work, and if it does crash, it doesn't kill the whole phone like earlier versions did.
