Waze

Developed by Israeli startup Waze Mobile, Waze is a GPS-based program for smartphones that provides users with turn-by-turn information, travel times and route details by downloading location-dependent information. Waze learns from users’ driving times to provide routing and real-time traffic updates. It allows users to report accidents, traffic jams and speed traps, and can update roads and landmarks. Google acquired Waze in June 2013, and added a social data aspect to the company’s mapping business.
