Apple is building its own Maps, but will it matter?

0. phoneArena 02 Nov 2011, 16:05 posted on

Apple has obviously been busy at work building its own map application to replace Google Maps on iOS, but what does Apple Maps need to be able to do, and when will we see it?...

no, you are afraid of a real bet. the only bet you are willing to do is phone vs phone which is an uneven bet at best. Just a sad sad troll, thats you.

for someone that claims that apple is the undisputed sales leader and the iphone is always the most phone sold by wide margins, u should take the bet.
Samsung doesnt release a new phone every week. In fact, right now they have about the same amount of phones out as apple. SGS1, SGS2, and a few side variants.
callin a spade a spade.. and a chicken a chicken.

Why is phone vs phone uneven? You're a coward. I'm taking a bet and giving you all the advantages.

As I said, Taco does take things too seriously at times, but I've always ended up having good interactions with him, even when he starts out a little too fired up. There are ways to have reasonable conversations with everyone, no matter how much you disagree. It's a lesson not often learned on the net.

i... dont have...to play you .. for..a...fool...... you..do that well.. on your.... own....

company..to...company is the...bet you should... think of it as ...brand to...brand. People..come in to buy i....phones.... and androids most people...dont... ask for the bulk of android..phones... by name....individual... android phones are just starting... to get brand.. identities... That is why its a... samsung...vs....apple fight... not an iphone vs galaxy...fight.. which you are actually...at a disadvantage on.... because the SGS2 has been outselling the.... iphone worldwide... for months.... since the day it was released....woopsie....... if it were a fresh phone vs a fresh....phone.... i would go for it... but the release cycles.... do not match up. i5 vs....SGS3 if they launch...about the same time...would be a very fair fight... and I would take you up on that.

The nexus... has never been a top seller.... but it has also never been availible in...store.... so its performance is ...unproven...and not a good bet to... make.

I wrote this in your... language so you would under...stand... it better.. did it help?

at times.. your talking 90% of the time. Yes, for a while he was acting better and actually making productive chatter more than flame trolling.. that time was a short stint and the bulk of everything he does is just trolling the threads saying crap to get a rise out of people. Everyone does it from time to time, but that is gallito and his purpose on the thread.
Any points that he does actually have normally get drowned out by all the stupidity that he says otherwise.
He doesnt contribute a darn thing.. not knowledge, never answers a question helpfully, nor can hold a random conversation without acting retarded most of the time. The only thing he contributes are site hits by people coming to watch what stupid things he says and yell at him. Again, which is why i think he hasnt been actually banned... especially with the heavy modding hand thats starting to come around the forum.

apple plans certainly to copy slavishly what exist then put a patent on it

That's a good idea. It's strange to have google maps on IOS device. It will take them some time to finish it. But knowing Apple, when they complete it, it will be sth special.
Maybe sth which could be as good as Nokia Maps...and working offline.
On the other side, Apple and those stupid restrictions...

Hate the iDea at the moment but we will see. I just think the google Maps App needs a voice and a street level navigation

I hope your not as foolish as you look right now....you would allow yourself to be blinded by your own love of Google to get rid of the only 'true' competition that stands between Google becoming a monopoly (Win Phone7 is a joke). Sad indeed...and Android fans constantly brag about the low cost of their devices but with competition gone it will NOT stay that way.

or "taco vs the rest"

I don't get that kind of articles. There are useles.. of course that it WILL matter.
For applefans for example.
Maybe not this year, but next 6 or 12 months it can evolve to something really interesting.
There is always room for innovations.
There are two good map apps.
Nokia Maps (which can work in offline which is a huge advantage) and google maps for android.
Why not create third one and let customers choose?
There is a group of clients which are looking at that kinds of apps. For me, phone without good maps or camera is useless, because I use it in daily basis.
So...go Apple! Only don't copy/paste others solutions:]
