No Camels

Waze, the popular Israeli GPS navigation app, won the 2013 Mobile World Congress’ Judges Choice Award  for best overall mobile application, beating other top contenders such as Dropbox, Flipboard and Square, the electronic payment service.

“This is a huge win for our community — thanks Wazers, for making us number 1!  Waze wrote on its Facebook page.  The company added: “It takes 40 million drivers to make a great service that impacts the world, and that’s just the beginning. Imagine what we’ll able to do at 100 million.”

Waze was among four other Israeli applications nominated in the competition under different categories. The other Israeli apps were MyCheck, Intucell, Isracard and uTest.
