Google Maps for iOS - Apple Maps: 4 - 1

Google Maps for iOS - Google Maps for Android: 5 - 0

The reality is hard sometimes.

How much money do they make if the app is free?

That depends on the amount of ads in the app. Google gets paid a lot for free apps, actually.

We already have a good nav app. Google is always making improvements to their services and probably have some nice updates baking for their nav app. Seeing as people were almost dieing from using apple maps, Google most likely jumped on the opportunity to help people in desperate need and at the same time try out their newest version of the app before we get it...you know...to make sure its perfect for us.

I like how the public transportation on apple's app suggests you use Google's.

You beat me to it.
Google's Android team is really lacking when it comes to the stock apps. This new maps app is much better than the one on Android :(

Google maps has been around for a long time so it has had years of improvement. It was not perfect when it was released.

Google was the pioneer so mistakes and errors were enevitable.

Apple is a copycat so it must be perfect or close to perfect.

You just can't compare the pioneer and a copycat.

For the global scale and investment of the maps Google is the pioneer, Nokia started making the maps after Google and the scale cannot compare to Google Maps.

Just called, Nokia said it was Google the pioneer.

They also said they have troubles selling Lumia 920 so leave them in peace.

MAkes me laugh ..how apple just makes a MAP app in just short months & call it "powerful & extraordinary"...come on they did not even mention the "Beta" tag ..

when you open the app 1st time they should have included a Disclaimer :
"The Maps app is in primary stage.we advise you to use it with caution.you might find yourself Lost or in another restaurant (if u have a DATE).If so we we cannot be blamed or b tangled in a lawsuit.Please have your eyes open & stay safe"

What you don't see is Google was "developing & innovating" while Apple was just doing "Copying And Makeover" ... there's a huge difference between the two approaches so Apple Maps failure should be compared with Google Maps ... but i guess it's difficult to understand :)
