New iOS maps in troubled water – Google Maps Great Barrier Reef

September 26, 2012

I love a lot about the new iOS. The constant iterative refinements are, to me, welcome in a world where devices are crammed with crap in an effort to stand out from the pack.

That said, the new iOS mapping app has gotten me lost every time I’ve tried to use it. There are plenty of alternatives on the market and continued usage will certainly improve the situation, but I don’t think there’s a more clear measure of the lead Google has on the mapping front then their announcement from this morning.

Apple has a long way to go before they catch up.
