Friends together

We listened to you, here’s what’s new

At Wave Let’s Meet App we have been working very hard over the last few months to improve even more our new version 3.0. which was totally redesigned and launched last May, into a complete communication experience between your friends or family and you. So, we are very proud to announce that we bring you the best Wave update, already available for free on iTunes and Google Play.

We have worked over some of the suggestions that you have been sending us lately: it is a version thought by you and made for you, taking in consideration your initiatives. It has three fundamental pillars: a significant increase in the speed of loading the position of the users on the map, a greater precision and millimeter in the positioning of the users and a new chat to send voice messages and pictures.

Full chat: send audios and images

You can now send voice messages to your contacts when you are walking and you prefer talking instead of texting, when you are busy or when they just want to have a conversation.

The new integration also includes the option of sharing images, an essential feature since Wave is a really popular app for traveling in group. In addition to being connected to a private map, you can send pictures of the trip or whatever you want.

To use these new features, open Wave and select a contact or a group of several, below you will see the chat to write with two new icons. To send voice messages, press the microphone icon while speaking and release it when you are finished. To share images, click on the attach files button and you will get two options, to make a photo or to look for one in the gallery.

With this update Wave brings you a more creative way of communicating with your contacts at any time, even if you have not opened a session.

Higher performance, more accuracy

Real time maps will now load your position on the map even faster.  We probably have the best real time location sharing service of the world, making possible for you to feel connected even if you are in the middle of nowhere, or find your friends in the crowdest space possible.

Top destinations in the world to travel in autumn

Going on holidays in autumn is a perfect way to live authentic changing landscapes around the globe, while enjoying a mild and warm weather and low prices. This season is almost free of festivities, despite of Thanksgiving, and traveling could be a good choice to take the most out of the season.

At this time going out with a bicycle, hiking or just enjoying a vibrant local culture is such a good experience, framed in red and yellow leaves everywhere. Whether it is a flowery festival in Japan, an adventure trip around Australia or a lifetime festival in New Orleans, we have it covered. Autumn is the perfect time to take the backpack, boots, camera and go out exploring the world. Do not worry about the destination, we have selected the best places in each continent to visit this fall and live a dream vacation.

AFRICA

Buthan is an African country with forests that occupy a 60% of its land. That offers many possibilities for nature lovers who want to trek on authentically natural terrain, go climbing, cycling or stargazing as they could not do in any part of the urbanized world is a perfect destination for this fall.

It has recently been highlighted by National Geographic as one of their favorite autumn destinations, when it celebrates two international festivals in which to taste all African traditions. Thimphu Tshechu takes place over the first week of October with traditional dances, local music, invited artists and masked balls. Black-Necked Crane Festival takes place on November 11 due to the migration and arrival of the Black-necked Crane and it is a unique experience to see the wild fauna while traveling in autumn.

ASIA

The arrival of autumn is lived with different intensity in different parts of the world, however there are places where the love for plants and flowers is almost sacred as it happens in Japan. One of the most idyllic places to enjoy the colorful nature is the temple of Toshogu, surrounded by a natural park. Another worthy destination is the Hitachi Seaside Park, a natural park in which blue nemophilas are surrounded by fiery crimson bassia bushes. All of them makes up a real chromatic spectacle for the eyes

If you are lucky enough to go, besides making a photo worthy of the best ‘instagrammer’, you will find yourself in a wild and natural landscape in which to relax, do group sports and enjoy a hot tea in one of the villages with an ancient and particular culture.

EUROPE

Maybe when we talk about Europe almost nobody would look at Iceland. However, autumn is the best time of year to visit this authentic natural environment near the North Pole, as the Northern Lights begin, when the sky dyes green as a result of the reflection of light. It is the time when the days are lengthened and still not too cold, bearing in mind that temperatures are above 0 degrees celsius.

The wide variety of Icelandic landscapes, from volcanoes and glaciers to green forests, make it an ideal destination for nature lovers who can do water sports, go hiking, go whale watching, visit the waterfalls of Snaefellsnes or take a thermal bath in Bláa Lónið.

SOUTH AMERICA

Colombia is one emerging country that offers tourists the most every year. Far from being a stage of war, the tranquility in which the country live nowadays, along with its temperate climate, rich culture and a tasty cuisine make it one of the ‘must’ destinations to visit on vacation. Autumn is an unique month to visit the country, due to the absence of agglomerations, a calm and dry climate and the magnificent marine fauna that reaches the island of Providence, where it is the third largest barrier reef in the world. In addition to scuba diving and snorkeling, you can go hiking or biking in the Guatapé natural park, enjoy the beaches of Cartagena de Indias or the nightlife of Bogota, the vast capital with 7 million inhabitants in which you will be able to taste all the delights of the country.

NORTH AMERICA

Taking a walk through the deep south of North America is a unique experience for anyone from outside, but visiting New Orleans in Fall ensures you to live one of the greatest cultural shows in the world. Historically, it has hosted walkers from all over the world adapting and mixing their celebrations, which results today in some of the most iconic festivals of the world.

There is the Burlesque festival in September, the international music festival of Voodoo Music Experience in October, that counts this year with stars such as The Killers, Foo Fighters or Galantis, from 27 to 29 October, and the the Oak Street Po-Boy Festival culinary show in November. This last one is a week of celebrations around Po-Boy’s sandwich, accompanied by activities for all audiences, musical concerts and a real party in the streets. If you are passionate about sport, in New Orleans you can go hiking, cycling, canoeing and kayaking in one of the natural sites that surround the city.

AUSTRALIA

In this part of the world the months of September to December live a blossoming spring and delight the landscapes covered with flowers over the sunny days. In Australia everyone can enjoy any type of adventure sport, excursion and walks at dusk. One of the most famous flower festivals in the world is the Canberra Floriade, which takes place throughout October, with a very unique chromatic landscape, accompanied by culinary festivals and music concerts to suit aIny taste.

Adventure sports are an awesome experience in this wild country, from scuba diving or snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef, to surfing in Palm Beach, hiking, biking and camping at Emu Creek Retreat or climbing in Tasmania. An adventure for the most daring.

4 Tips to feel more relaxed at Christmas

Losing your nerve is rather easy this time of year buying the last gifts, getting the ingredients for your new recipes and driving around like crazy. Luckily there are solutions:

  1. Don´t call to say you are late while behind the wheel

A big part of all car crashes are caused by driver distraction. Tracking your family’s location by calling home or texting on WhatsApp saying you are late is one of the most popular distractions.

There is a better way. Drive safely while they can check your location real time using Wave from 15 min up to 8 hours. This way allows them to interact with you, know if you are late and where you are without you even picking up your cellphone.

This Christmas we are introducing you an amazing app to get home safe and let your family know how much they need to feed you. Finding your friendws was never easier. Enjoy it!

Be late but be safe #BetterTogether

  1. Unable the notifications

It is very tempting listening to the push notifications while you are already bored of driving, so we encourage you to put the sound off or unable all the notifications so you don’t get distracted by your cellphone. If you really need to talk, stop your car, have a quick coffee and use your cellphone. Enjoy a little bit of time for yourself, relax and keep driving safe.

Some cellphones have the mode “don´t disturb” which actually is like the flight mode, an option to enable or disable depending on the conditions. If your cellphone has it, driving it is such a good time to use it.

  1. If you want to have a drink, be clever

There are plenty of apps that are a good alternative to avoid driving, such as Uber, that runs in most of the countries, or Cabify that is a private service for passengers, especially for Latam and Europe. Public transport could also help and allows to save some money.

  1. How to park at Christmas

It seems that all the seats left on the street are already occupied and parking is running out of places early in the afternoon. It is crazy, we know.  Finding your friends and relatives would be difficult those days, so we suggest you to try some services as Car to Go, which allows you to rent an electric car anywhere in a city and drop it anywhere you go. Just using a map you can find the closest car available and pay for the route, not for the parking.
