Waze is a user-driven mobile application (for iPhone, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, and other mobile systems) that provides turn-by-turn navigation suggestions based on the real-time conditions of the road. Using it you can avoid traffic jams, and at the same time help other drivers (by sharing your driving data).

Once the app installed, it will passively record your route as you drive, and send data to Waze to update the live traffic information map. For example, Waze will know that you are stuck in traffic and appropriately update the map for others to see.

You can also actively send reports with a few easy clicks. For example, if you come across an accident or construction work that obstructs traffic, you can make a quick report for other users to see. You can also take a photo of the road and upload them to the live map.

The strength of Waze is its user-generated content. With its crowd-sourced philosophy, users can update or report errors in the live map. The more users use Waze, the better the live maps are.

In fact, Waze added a little incentive for users by giving points for hitting a waypoint in the live map. These waypoints will show as goodies in the live map. Users can drive over these goodies to help the Waze community complete the missing data in these maps.

Waze is the perfect tool for drivers that demand real-time data where today’s GPS maps cannot deliver. With updates from the Waze community, everything happens in seconds.

Features:

  • Free downloads available for iPhone, Android, Symbian, Windows Mobile, and other mobile systems.
  • User-generated real-time maps help you navigate while driving.
  • Quickly tells you if there is traffic, accident, or road blocks.
  • Easy interface allows users to update maps by adding in missing roads, street names, junctions and more.
  • Available live maps all around the world.
  • Take live photos and upload them to update the map.

    VIMEO ARE A REAL LET DOWN with really CRAPPY SUPPORT and a platform which doesn't work too well or too intuitively. I NEEDED TO SHARE A PRIVATE VIDEO. IT TOOK FOUR DAYS OF TRYING, (You'd assume if support was any good they would have done something about it by then huh? ) I GAVE UP , WILL BE SHUTTING THE ACCOUNT TODAY and limit myself to the other options on here.
    I DO HOWEVER WONDER IF THEY ARE THIS BAD WITH BIG CORPORATIONS LIKE SONY MUSIC and THE LIKE?
    PROBABLY NOT.

    MY CONCLUSION:

    VIMEO try to come across as casual , HIP and cool but in reality THEY ARE A LACKLUSTRE, MEDIOCRE BIG CORPORATION WHO DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL.

    Thanks for reading

    You should consider adding Familycrossings.com to this list. Designed for families you can upload or send from your smart device to a private family website. Just drag and drop the video clips. Its also great for photos, and scheduling family events.
