App of the Month: WAZEwaze

Waze is community-based traffic and navigation app, which allows you to share real-time traffic and road info with other drivers in your area. It helps commuters beat traffic and find the best route to get where you want to go.

Information shared includes notifications about real-time jams created by accidents, police intervention, road work, road detours, traffic congestion, etc. A growing community of Waze members work constantly to update the information and reflect changes to traffic patterns. When connected to Facebook, Waze can notify you of friends driving to you destination and will let you coordinate everyone’s arrival times for pick-ups or meet-ups.
