Traveling has become expensive, and using apps such as Uber can be even more costly. So, what's the best way to get around? Perhaps carpooling with a few friends on Waze? Let's check it out to see.
Wave Carpool is a community-oriented carpooling application. The app lets you share rides and lower gas fees, but it has a couple shortfalls.
While carpooling is not always the fastest, commuting with others can be beneficial for both the environment and your pocket. Carpooling apps, like Waze Carpool, pair drivers and riders together based on the end destination. This app helps you find a lift or give one to another in need.
Waze is made for the community and thrives because of it. By collecting data as you travel, Waze Carpool detects the best routes and uses these to take you to your destination in the shortest time possible. The app also has many game-like features, letting you level up by using the app. You can also gain unlockable characters just by using Waze.
You'll never appear off-route when you're using the app’s map. The software can find community-rated restaurants for you to dine at and direct you to the gas stations that offer the best prices. Another useful feature you'll find is the friend list, which lets you keep track of where your friends are while they're traveling. You can also use it to create spontaneous encounters with other registered people.
You should, however, be careful when using Waze's map, as it can quickly become cluttered with information. The main interface becomes even more distracting than usual with this type of layout.
Where can you run this program?
Waze Carpool is available for Android and iOS devices.
Is there a better alternative?
No. As a carpooling application, Waze is the best available. However, if you want to arrive to a destination quicker, you'll find Uber to be a better, yet more expensive, choice.
Waze Carpool is a great application that lets you share a drive with friends and find information on local cuisine and gas prices. Its community-oriented setup keeps the app up to date with changes made from app users.
Should you download it?
Yes. If you’re looking for a cheap way to travel, this is a good choice.
