[Review] Download And Use A Traffic App For Android – Try Waze
Heavy traffic jam! If you are living in the metro or in the city, heavy traffic is one of the most common problems everyone’s facing. Most especially during peak hours where people and students alike are in a rush just to get to their respective destinations on time. In situations like this, I am now thinking that you are wishing to have something like an monitoring tool to at least lets you find the easiest and fastest route to your destination, right? Then I guess the most recommendable monitoring tool I could suggest is Waze, it is a traffic app for Android. This Android application is pretty amazing and I have already tried it on my Samsung Galaxy S II.
Waze is not only a traffic app for Android but also serves as a social community tool for all the people on the road. It uses a GPS (Global Positioning System) to aid the user of this Android app while he is on the road. Waze is a navigating and traffic monitoring Android app which can ease your driving hours because it can guide you to find the most accessible and fastest routes or roads. With this traffic app for android you can now avoid those heavily traffic roads while you’re driving and reach your destination in a shortest time. Actually, you can also use this while you are walking and trying to find a certain place within the vicinity and avoid of getting lost (and wasting valuable time). Waze can also provide you a turn-by-turn guidance after you set a place for your target destination. The mentioned guidance will not only provide you a map but you can even turn on the application’s voice-guided feature.
