Waze

The Google-owned ‘social GPS’ app Waze has been updated to add support for navigating to destinations directly from calendar entries.

From today, events with location info automatically appear in your navigation list and you can navigate to them in just one touch. If you have a particularly busy diary, don’t worry, only two events are shown at a time. Naturally, if you’d rather not use the feature you can disable it from in the app’s settings menu on Android devices, or from your phone’s settings if you’re using an iOS device and don’t want the integration.

The new feature has been rolled for both the iOS and Android versions of the app, but the Windows Phone build appears to be left wanting, for now.
