Not sure what all the fuss was about, I have used both the map feature, and the nav feature on i5, and have had no problems. I had an android before the i5 using the google, and I can not tell a difference between them. In fact, if it weren't for all the bad press on the Apple Maps, I wouldn't know I wasn't on Google maps.
I hope the switch back goes smoothly, and makes for an even better experience rather than messing up entire phone with conflicts.
Last weekend Apple's map told me to "get out and walk 900 feet" across farmland to my destination. Never mind that the house it had us parking at had two big warning signs in the yard. One saying "Beware of Dogs" and the other saying "Beware of Dogs. Do NOT Get Out of Your Car!" Thankfully, I was smart enough to ignore "Siri", drive away and then pull over somewhere else and call for back up help.
"Google's new iPhone mapping app also will offer its street-level photography of local neighborhoods for the first time on Apple's mobile operating system"...
Incorrect. The previous Maps app had street-view.
The author of the article didn't do enough research to know that street-view was on the original google apple maps. How can we believe how the "product's shoddiness" editorial of apple maps?
Phase 1 complete. Now just replace all iPhones with Androids and all will be right in the world. iPhone has to be, possibly, the most useless pile of garbage in the "smartphone" market. Can't do anything.
Apple also recently brought back the You Tube app. Those two changes to the O/S were the biggest disappointment when I upgraded my iPad.
I have both map apps, but the Apple version works best for my purposes.
First world problems.
