    There are no social driving alternatives. Waze is it, unfortunately. Otherwise, HERE Drive is good, but not as useful as Waze.

    Just loaded Waze again and it is still working fine. The problem was, indeed, server side.

    It used to crash before opening on my Lumia 1520 with Windows Phone 8.1 Update (1). Now it works.
    Now, really, a decent app should start, and if any error occurs it should get caught, reported and some decent message displayed for the end user.

    Agreed but this app has been abandoned by its creators so we're left with "just be happy that it works at all". ;)

    I had the same issue on my Icon after the 10581 update. Waze would start then immediately crash. I did an uninstall and reinstall of Waze this morning and it is working again!

    Contacted them regarding the crash on startup. Pretty quick response:

    Dear Wazer,

    Thank you for contacting Waze.

    New versions of the Waze app are not currently optimized for the Windows Phone platform, since the vast majority of Waze users are on iOS or Android devices. We are monitoring the Windows Phone install rate and will certainly reconsider if there is significant uptake.

    Thanks,

    The Waze Support Team

    Time to flood them with support requests!
    "We are monitoring the Windows Phone install rate and will certainly reconsider if there is significant uptake"

    Uptake of what? If the app won't run, what could they possibly be talking about? The increase in this app crashing? Uptake of people complaining? An increase in the download rate? Give me a break. Waze just updated on IOS and that's where the resources are being directed.

    This "significant uptake" is google finally pulling the plug and why shouldn't they? For all intents and purposes, its a dead program. As the doctors in the ER would say, "time of death, Halloween Night, 2015".

    That's actually the day of death, not time.
