Apple Maps gets punked as phony street names appear on the application

0. phoneArena 19 Jan 2013, 19:31 posted on

As if Apple Maps needed any outside help for users to worry about how reliable the application is, someone either played a prank giving false names to roads on OpenStreetMap, a mapping service that can be edited by users which Apple uses in some areas of the globe to build out its mapping application; names like "Bad Monkey" and "Hillbilly Hameed" are shown to be the names of streets in Kabul...

Sadly you're probably right. The technical aspects of Apple Maps are good. The framework is there for what could shape up to be a pretty great mapping application. They just need to get themselves sorted on the accuracy side and flesh out their data on the world's roads and places.

It's tough to do, especially when they're coming into the game so late. Google has the advantage of years of data, and it'll be a long time before Apple is TRULY caught up to them in this regard.

What Apple needs to do is start focusing on releasing finished software, and not focus on trying to screw google or other companies. They keep rushing out product just top flip the finger atty other businesses, and it winds up being crap.

The had a whole year left to work on their maps, but they had to rush out this half baked pos because they wanted to push google off their device.

Google focuses on innovation, Apple focuses on pettiness.

Its better to leave Apple how they are and let them not innovate and leave there ios6 as same as io7,8,9 and there iP5 design should be the same as 5s,6, 6s, 7.....

ofcourse i dont but the ones actually thumbing people down are ''troll'' and other android fanboys so they deflect to others like me to put the blame on.........its pathetic

and there isnt one article on this site where android idiots havent took over and muppets like troll havent spread there bs. he is so stupid makes that apple troll look a genius.

unless you praise android you cant discuss on here, now wait for troll and one of his usual its ok to hate on others comment

well maybe open your eyes, if you claim you dont see android fanboys on this article all you say become invalid as it shows how one sided and biased you are
