Waze is currently available in the Android Market and it has been receiving regular updates. The service provides free turn-by-turn navigation with voice guidance and real time traffic updates. They recently released clients for iPhone, Windows Mobile, and Symbian which has resulted in a major increase of people using the service. If you are unfamiliar with Waze, check out their guided tour.
I am a big fan of Waze because they are actively involved with the community and they routinely host fun contest. Check out their latest challenge to win a $100 iTunes giftcard.
Goblins and monsters and pumpkins, oh my! It’s Halloween time and what better way to celebrate than to offer something sweet to our favorite trick-or-treaters out there? How about a $100 iTunes giftcard and an awesome candy goodiebag? Interested? Well, read on…
How to Participate:
- Downloaded waze to your phone — you can do so on our download page.
- Enter your Twitter account info by visting waze’s ‘Profile’ section, under ‘Settings” in the app once it’s on your phone. Make sure that the feature is turned to ‘on’.
- Send a road report by clicking ‘Report’ on the bottom of the main waze screen and following directions from there. Road reports can be anything you’d like to report from the road — hazards, speed cams, police traps, etc.
- Done! Your report will be tweeted automatically to your followers, entering you one time in the contest.
The contest begins immediately and the first winner will be picked from road tweets happening from the time of posting until 4am PST on Thursday morning. Each additional winner will be chosen for the following 24 hour periods – 4am PST on Thursday, October 29 through 4am PST on Friday, October 30, and so on, through 4am PST on Sunday, November 2, 2009.
