WAZE - GPS Application with realtime traffic information
Technology has advanced in a such a way that, even if we don't know the commuting way for a destination, we reach on time without missing the road. Yes, GPS has become our day to day life, like any other mobile devices.
WAZE is one such application which is helping day to day every commuter. Waze works on both wifi and mobile data. It tracks it's user location through satellite.
Most attractive part of this application is the UI and it's pretty icons.
Whenever I use this app I strongly feel like the designer has a very strong 'iconography' skill. Apart from icons, another impressing feature of this app is "real time data". This application is one, which completely runs on user driven real time data.
For example, a Wazer will reports the traffic status, road construction, police alert, road accidents etc.
If the next Wazer, when he cross the same road and don't find any traffic - he updates the same. Also from application side the map has all the data like shops next to your commute, latest road information etc.
The biggest strength of this application is it's UI and users. It has a vast number of users, who updates it's data every next minute.
- Icons have a big impact on the user.
- Nothing as such
