Let's face it, if you aren't sleeping, you are at work, or driving to/from work. Maybe if you're lucky you are driving somewhere fun! Whatever reason you are on the road, I have a few great apps that will make your life infinitely easier getting to wherever you are going.
Wouldn't it be cool if you could get a Glimpse of where people you are meeting are on the roadway or what their ETA is? This app, Glimpse
, does just that. This is one of those "why didn't I think of that" apps!
The photo below shows what it looks like when you are meeting 3 other people. It'll show where each of you are or in the case below, the one person selected on the map.
You can choose to show your travels to a certain location or give a glimpse of where you are traveling for a predetermined amount of time.
This app is such a great concept, delivered in a really easy-to-use interface.
This app is like Navigation on steroids. Not only does it get you where you need to go, it tells you the EXACT (and I'm not messing around here) ETA. It uses real time information from other users (Wazers) to compile information regarding traffic, the speed at which you'll be driving through the traffic and anything else that might impact your commute.
Did I mention you get points? That is how all of the data is complied, by other drivers like yourself that are points driven into reporting information, i.e. police ahead or obstruction on shoulder.
And, as with every other app on the planet, you can connect with your friends on Facebook and see how you stack up with them for points!
I am killin' it, I am officially a Waze Warrior!
