Waze used to be 5 stars, now only one, because of the recent changes they've made to the app. What a mess it is now. Waze used to make announcements about hazards, etc., ahead, now half the time the app is quiet. The "there/not there" on screen buttons used to have a timer on them, so that they would disappear in a few seconds, if you don't make a selection....now the buttons remain, never going away. You guys turned a useful app into an irritating experience. Well done.

Not consistent. At times the app gets discombobulated and spins when you are already moving, freezes when you are trying to decide which direction to turn, flips direction after you are moving, seems not real-time by taking you on a much longer route (i.e. through residential neighborhoods with tons of speed bumbs and stop signs, lower speed limits, etc.). At times, the app goes on the fritz.

Not sure what happened with this last update. First, the voice I had set prior to the update is now different. Initial spoken directions and random directions afterwards are in a deep generic voice. I since changed to another voice and it seemed to have fixed itself. Second, any on-screen alerts (i.e. speed camera, or the "still there?" message, etc. remains on-screen and does not disappear. I literally have to swipe the notification away and even that is tricky to do.
