    Waze, which was acquired by Google last year, is a crowd-sourced maps and navigation app that uses travel data from you and people just like you in order to provide real-time information on the quickest routes. If your friends are using Waze, you can add them as friends and, if you're going the same place, you'll see when they'll arrive. Turn-by-turn navigation with Waze is also absolutely free, and Waze can even help you find the cheapest gas station while driving.

    If you want a navigation app that makes it super simple to keep up with friends and family in real time, try Waze.
