While google Maps has certainly improved of late, much of this is thanks to the data and design of this app, Waze. After you create an account, your journey starts to get personalised and improved. Have a favourite way home, this app takes that into account. Better still, it takes the experience of all the Waze users into account and uses that information to make your journey faster, safer and it might even save you money. Wish you knew where the police or speed cameras were? How about knowing what the speed limits were so you don’t go over by mistake? Yup, this does it all. One day all of these features might get rolled into Google Maps, but until then, it is a worthwhile install.
