Do you remember our recent article about the way Google collects mobile road congestion data to improve the traffic information for Google Maps Mobile? As a matter of fact, there's a similar service available now which works similar but offers even more features: Waze. It's a free turn-by-turn GPS app that uses crowd sourcing to detect real time traffic conditions. Map and traffic updates are automatically collected and generated as users drive with Waze activated, but drivers can also actively report and update other users with what's happening on the road including accident alerts, police traps, weather hazards, cheap gas offers and more.

So far, Waze was available for Apple iPhone and Android only but the company is soon expanding the service to Windows Mobile devices as well.

Therefore the company is looking for alpha testers in the US who would be interested in trying Waze for Windows Mobile before it's being released to the public soon after. Waze is 100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets. All you need to do is registering for the free Alpha.

Cheers ~ Arne
