We’ve covered Waze in the past for it’s simple use, nicely done UI, and robust + active user community which makes the user generated GPS application and service a joy to use. If you find your daily commute boring and unlively, I promise that after “Wazing” even one of your trips, you’ll be hooked. Dan from Waze just hit me up with another mail alerting me to a freshly released iPhone update that adds in two big features that should keep hooked users even deeper and newcomers intrigued.

  • Personalized Alternative Routes: Hate taking the same path twice, like some variety from day-to-day, or need a quick second option because of a weather/road hazard? This feature is for you. After driving a second, third, or *insert number here* route 2-3 times, the Waze application will learn your new route and display it in addition to your normal route with info on each allowing you to make an educated decision as to how you want to go.
  • Scoreboard: The scoreboard has been talked about several times now over the last few months. For Waze die hard Waze users, the scoreboard is by far the best new feature, allowing them to finally compare their points against other local Wazers. Nothing makes a boring task more lively and fun like the good ‘ol spirit of competition.

If you haven’t tried Waze yet, now is a better time than ever. The indecisive will find the new alternative routes feature a lifesaver as will the die-hard users with the scoreboard. Is there any reason not to use Waze?
