Posted by Chris Cardinal on Nov 21, 2014 4:51:00 PM

If you’re like most of us, the holidays are a whirlwind time focused on friends and family. That’s the good part. The bad part is trying to decide what sort of gifts to get your loved ones that will stand out and make them feel special. Our best suggestion?

App of the Month: WAZE

Posted by Chris Cardinal on Nov 21, 2014 4:47:00 PM

First, let me tell you that WAZE is probably the most relevant traffic app available. Why? Because it is a unique hybrid of advanced mapping technology and social media. The nuts and bolts aspect of WAZE, getting from Point A to Point B in the most direct way is pretty much spot on.  Simply type in (or speak) a specific address, or even something like “pizza in Danbury, CT” to start your journey.  WAZE will provide the most direct route, alert you of problems along the way, and give you a surprisingly accurate ETA for reaching your destination. Plus, as a bonus, you can share your route via SMS or email. The recipient can even watch your progress via this link to see if you encounter traffic along the way. Simply incredible!
