☀☀☀☀ Waze is a navigation app that allows users to connect with one another. Unlike most other GPS systems Waze notifies you when you are about to approach an accident, roadside hazard, police officer, or high traffic area. The app calculates how long your route will take and suggests shortcuts. It would get journalists to news events faster. You can earn points depending on how many miles you drive, and you can use them to unlock different avatars for your profile. Waze is an effective navigation system that millions use to add a little fun to your drive. —Ashley Altmann
