So, I was looking around for what was making the news and I found something about the iphone and its map app. This time Apple is competing with Google maps and tried to make their own, but the result looks rather funny :P

Google's is much better. They can't compete with them.

Actually, this is not Apple's data. Most of it is provided by TomTom (DigitalGlobe provides the satellite imagery, among others that provide business data, neighborhood data, and more). Granted, it needs work. But, after using it on my iPhone, I can say it is a huge improvement over Google's maps. It loads 10 times quicker, it's more accurate, and is just smoother overall.

Google's got like 7 years ahead of them with their own satellite and a ton of street view cars...Apple bought TomTom, TomTom wouldn't have been sold if it was doing well.

I don't see this hitting off

what good is quick loading map if you can't navigate it? i'll take a slow loading one if it at least works...

not to mention google maps has about 100 more features.

I want my Google Maps back.

I tested it out for fun yesterday, and literally 90% of the time we were driving in a state of nothingness or on imaginary roads.

You're exaggerating. Have you even used the app? I can navigate just fine and there have been absolutely no problems other than less mapping data. It's a better user experience already and as they continue to gather more information for the app, it will surpass Google's even further. Also, please explain those "100 more features" to me, please.

It's called defending something you like. Since when is this a crime? Unless you have something constructive to add, please don't add anything at all.

Oh, so that's how it's going to be, huh? Cute attitude. I don't appreciate it. "Unless you have something constructive to add, please don't add anything at all."? Yes, boss.

Phox doesn't like it, good for him. You like it, good for you. Quit being so pushy about it.

I can understand Apple's desire to distance it's self from Google, as Google is its prime competitor atm, but I think the jump to Apple's own mapping platform should of been thought out a little more, While I do rather like some of the upgrades that came with the new iOS, I must admit I am rather disappointed at how many flaws and just how user unfriendly Apples new in house map app is. I personally wonder if it could have waited for the next patch so they could of worked out some of the kinks before presenting it to Apple users worldwide. It looks really bad for your company when your CEO has to step forward to apologize for massively screwing up a in house product, but I do give the Apple CEO some bonus points for coming forward to address Apple fan's directly, it takes some serious balls to admit you screwed up that badly on a fan favorite feature, especially so soon after a much anticipated release of the newest iPhone model and iOS release.

I must admit I have always been a bit of an Google Maps fan, so even if Apple did get it right the first time, they would really have to knock my socks off with some feature that Google lacked, before I switch my allegiance for mobile maps from Google to anything this new.
