Better still, they’ve only gone and added a bloomin’ Maps section to the App Store, offering alternative mapping solutions to iOS 6's Apple Maps. What the...?
The recommended apps include efforts from Waze, ForeverMap, NAVIGON, AA, Garmin and Bing.
But wait, Apple’s helpfulness knows no bounds. On Friday, we mentioned that Tim’s letter suggested creating a shortcut for Google or Nokia maps on your iDevices’s home screen. How does full instructions on the Apple site sound?
Finally, Team Cupertino has changed the description of its Maps app on the Apple site. It used to read: “All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service ever.”
The new, significantly more modest description reads: “All in a beautiful vector-based interface that scales and zooms with ease.”
Great stuff. Oh, in case you’ve been sleeping under a rock for the past couple of weeks, Apple’s Maps app controversially replaced Google Maps in iOS 6, with a number of shortcomings making headline news (because there’s nothing more important going on in the world).
Still confused? Check out Apple Maps: a bit rubbish?
