10 fails found in Apple Maps

0. phoneArena 20 Sep 2012, 09:41 posted on

It looks like iPhone and iPad owners aren't happy with the new Apple Maps, which replaces Google Maps in iOS 6. We cannot blame them, given the number of flaws that have been exposed already, such as the inaccurate or incomplete information and poorer imaging data when compared to Google's alternative...

It's a good thing I didn't update to iOS 6.I'll wait till they bring the REAL Google Maps on the app store or fix their another,DAMN-USELESS-HALF-BAKED PRODUCT IN FUTURE UPDATES! iFans can go on saying that its new and gonna take time. Guess what? Apple isn't itself collecting the data! It's using someone else's, someone who has a bit of experience in that area.Apple knowingly puts user-experience to jeopardy partnering with less money-demanding partners. WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ITS FUNCTIONALITY IS GONNA BE? Better than Google's? In maybe 15 years it can match Google's CURRENT features and by that time, Google would progress to Mars! Enough excuses people and especially Apple Fanatics. Those who still support Apple here can follow the map directions and reach Alaska instead of the Barista at the next block. I'm content with what Google offers me and let me tell you, It just works!!

If Apple updates this quickly, it won't be a big problem.

However, if they wait almost a year to update it like they did with Siri, it will be a HUGE problem.

Yep, because of Apples arrogance, it is still a big F U to the iOS users who previously had at least a USABLE app before

I still can't get my head around how has this even happened. I understand there can be snags and issues when a piece of software is released, but missing entire towns? It's not like they appear overnight and weren't there when the first data set was obtained. What data did TomTom supply Apple with and what did Apple then do with it? The maps and directions on my TomTom are perfect. Even Waze's CEO has criticised it.

It actually makes sense guys! See, according to past Apple favoring users on the Site who I won't name, Google copied Apple with Now/Majel/their AI, which had been in development for three years. This means that Google had to invent a time machine and use it after Siri was developed to copy anything! Since Google had a time machine, it's only natural that Apple would have one too. Before the release of IOS 6, Apple must have traveled to the future to see if the 2012 apocalypse stories were true, and THEY WERE TRUE! So now Apple's maps have been updated to show the world as it will be post apocalypse, thus showing how truly forward thinking and innovative they really are!

Hail Apple!

Apple iPhone users should just stick with Apple Maps because this suits them better. Google and Nokia can be reserved for the android and WP users.

Aldwych Station is shown in London. Fair enough. It only closed in 1994.

Well Apple is trying to be "diffreent" (being Unique) from others on Maps also like they did with when they dished out "Lightening". So these are not 10 failures but 10 UNIQUE features from Apple World :D

you can use siri to see how much a broke charge port repair is on your android while your at it,
and then you will sadly find out you probably can't get it fixed
