The folks at Waze have released version 3.0 of their social-driven navigation application. This new version adds support for both Yelp and Foursquare, something I know many of you will highly appreciate. They’ve also refreshed the user interface to make it more minimalist and to give it more “swagger and style.” Finally, with the new social location stack, Waze curates data from its own database, Foursquare and Yelp to provide more up-to-date destinations and information about what’s going on around you. All of this is available for free in the Android market so get downloading.
