Soon after Apple foisted its lousy iOS 6 Maps app on the public, CEO Tim Cook publicly apologized for the debacle and suggested that Apple users try several mapping alternatives instead. One of those apps was Waze, a navigation tool that uses crowdsourced traffic information to deliver the latest updates on accidents, congestion, speed traps, red light cameras and gas prices in your area. Waze also provides spoken turn-by-turn driving directions, and can reroute you to less busy thoroughfares. On the downside, it lacks other information you may expect from a mapping app, such as walking directions and public transportation schedules. And given its crowdsourcing ways, Waze probably isn't the best choice for sparsely populated rural areas.

I second Waze. My other favorite this year is Uber, which has rescued me more than a few times from waiting for taxis that never arrive.
