The Maps update is the best thing that has happened since the iPhone,"says Aubrey Raupe. Michael Baum says, "The iPhone 5 is just so awesome. And the Apple maps app rocks." Did he mean to say that Apple Maps shows rocks where his house is supposed to be? Android users are used to turn-by-turn directions, Apple iPhone users are not which explains this gushing praise for Apple Maps. "The maps app is 3D and speaks! Simple things make me so excited!!"
Check out the 17 tweets from those who like Apple Maps below. Despite its problems, the application is functional for some users. If you don't agree , there are other map applications available in the App Store, some also offering turn-by-turn directions. You can also use the mobile web version of Nokia Maps or Google Maps on your mobile Safari browser.
Lol, The last one said Google Maps on iOS. People don't even know whose software they are using.

That is true and your making an investment on a phone so you should at least know the basics but then again how can you like something you never had before. These people have never held an Android phone so how can they know whats good from whats bad.

I wouldnt say stupid... well, not for everyone. Your intelligence changes by subject, so you can be functionally illiterate in tech even though your super knowledgeable in something else. But we live in a world surrounded by tech. You need to have at least a basic knowledge of what is out there and how to use it. Anyone that does not is nearly guaranteed to not get very far in life.. or at least any farther than they are. Even old school jobs like mechanics are ruled by computers now. What's left? Trash collection.. mortician? This is a geeks world. Over the last 20-30 years the world has changed thanks to technology. Those who have not embraced it by now are just dust to be swept aside. Those that do embrace it have the best chances of having a solid life.

They haven't used Nokia Maps or they are happy with whatever Apple provides them with.

I'd choose Google/Nokia Maps over ios6 maps any day, but I think Apple Maps is good too. There are many errors in Apple's maps I'm sure, but in my experience its actually been pretty good. I think that the huge negative press on maps is over the top and in no way indicative of everyday use (at least in my area anyway).

All I see is "OMGOSH MY NEW APPLE MAPS IS SO AWESOME! IT EVEN DOES EVERYTHING GOOGLE MAPS ON ANDROID HAS BEEN ABLE TO DO FOR YEARS NOW!" -__- Like, really? Have you used Google even as a search engine or maps online at all before? No? Next step for horrible people to attempt: Hack iOS Maps to direct its users....into oncoming traffic.
