Couple of factors might have influenced
1. App development effort could have come to an end...
2. Nokia has patent that could affect waze this could help is keeping MS happy...
On the other hand, i am happy Google is not porting any of it's services to WP... Android is an open source project and MS is milking money of it and lot of money from OEM's... MS is so evil...Why should google give their services for free to MS?

so ur logic is we all work with no pay work for free if boss wants to pay us its ok othervise we all can live without money good logic Sir I salute you. u can die hungry MS wont die like that
google has more bad way of making money of ur privacy and stuff critical to you so they give you cute looking OS and sale you for money i guess this is true evil

Hopefully they'll also bring over Google Maps (which Waze will likely be merged into).

I never used Waze, but aren't these kinds of things easily susceptible to abuse? Crowd sourced realtime traffic information etc. sounds like it could be easy to screw with some people...

It actually works pretty well, since you can not input the data, the app measure the traffic based on the average speed on the street and your current street, then it compares it to the data from other drivers, so in order to mess it up, you would need to have a lot of friends to preted there is a traffic jam (which in fact will cause a traffic jam)
Amazing this little software, and the great thing is that it works in smaller cities too (not just big cities like google traffic information or Nokia's solution)

The only reason I need this is to avoid speed traps. It's common for me to go 100mph on a highway. I drive on a highway twice weekly crossing states, and I need to save time.
