    Default Has anyone seen waze app?

    Has anyone seen this app? I saw it recommended somewhere so I downloaded it. I seems to want access to everything on your machine. Not sure what it needs that for.
    I removed it right away.

    Not sure - but this is likely the best navigation program for the z10. Waze has millions of users.

    I really love it and use it daily. There are a few bugs but nothing that hinders it. Totally recommended

    Honestly that was the aspect that bugged me. Sharing all sorts of stuff with the rest of the world, some of which you might not have control over. You need to have a lot of faith in the vendor that they are not going to do something distrustful (ie snooping around info they have no business snooping around), or stupid. (ie poor coding allows other people to see things, like your current location, that you don't want them to see, because they didn't design adequate security into the product.)

    In general, if you don't pay for something, you're not the customer. You're the product.

    In this case, that would mean, your location and other info are used to make the app attractive to other people.

    I guess I'll wait to see other people's comments and reviews before I try something like that.

    you can go into app permissions and deny it access to your files.

    If the app saves or loads .GPX track files, then it needs access to your shared folder and will ask for your permission. It would be really nice if the dev could specify why access is needed when the permissions dialog pops up but there is no way to do this. Instead, you see only an intimidating warning about all the things that the app might do if you grant the permission. The operative word here is "might". The bottom line is that if you don't trust the app, don't grant the permission, but, by the same token, don't be surprised if the app does not work properly.
    Show off PlayBook's magnetometer! Just point and see What's up.

    Is anyone having problems with Waze? I know it's an Android port, so some incompatibility had to be expected; but the app freezes my phone.

    I'm currently running a to-be released 10.0.10.648 on a beta 3G model.

    The app will work great for about 2 minutes, then the screen will freeze. I think the rest of the OS is working on the background, as I've gotten emails notification sounds and the red LED starts blinking.

    Has anyone else gotten this problem? Anyone have a good recommendation (besides getting a new device )

    Works great for me.
    The only thing us that the scoreboard doesn't work but I can access that in the browser for the time being. The dev is aware and looking into it.

    It is a social navigation app where you post updates on accidents, cops, etc so you use your camera, Twitter, contacts friends, etc. It can notify people of arrival times and a whole bunch of stuff. If you want to be interactive and social then you need the permissions.
