waze Drives into the iTunes App Store, Offers First Free Crowd-Sourced Maps for iPhone

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– waze, Inc., the first free provider of driver-generated maps and real-time road information, today announced the availability of its mobile application in the iTunes App Store. Through a community of drivers, waze harnesses driver-generated data to build road maps and provide real-time traffic information to commuters. Unlike static maps and first-generation traffic networks, waze relies on a community of drivers to both populate the maps and provide daily traffic information. As more and more iPhone users download and use the app, the maps and traffic information will become more robust and accurate over time. iPhone users can download the app today from iTunes today. “This is just the start of a crowd-sourced project that will change the way drivers make their daily driving decisions,” said Noam Bardin, the company’s CEO.
