London Underground solves iOS 6 Maps woes with old-fashioned techniques
The Apple Maps introduced with iOS 6 have been the subject of criticism and ridicule due to their numerous imperfections. The lack of reliable information about public transportation is one of them. That could be a problem for users who live in a crowded city like London and rely heavily on the tube (read: the subway) in order to get around.
The London Underground, however, has a solution to the problem, as it becomes evident from this photo posted by Twitter user Ben Mathis. And it is quite an old-fashioned one, it seems – anyone is free to get a local area map from the booking office.
Alternatively, users can use the mobile version of Google Maps on their iPhones and iPads. Sure, it is a bit slower than we wish it was, but rest assured that a proper non-web-based app from Google is on its way.
