hether you're on the highway or side streets, the roads are full of hazards to your safety, wallet, and punctuality. Information on traffic jams, gas prices, and police activity have been available on separate smartphone apps for years, but haven't been accessible in a single place until now.
Waze, one of today's top navigational tools, was recently acquired by Google for over a billion dollars. The revolutionary technology lets its users contribute to its data, giving the platform up-to-the-second information on travel times. Users can clue each other in on police traps, cheep gas prices, and shortcuts to avoid major traffic jams.
Waze automatically gathers the user's travel information and uses it to construct a composite map of a localized area. Better than most paid navigation apps, Waze is available for free on any smartphone platform.
