Apple has promised that their own Maps app will “improve”, after it has received criticism from customers and critics alike.
As we reported on earlier, the Apple’s new iOS 6 replaced the Google Maps app with it’s own, and it has failed to impress consumers. The Apple Map app has many major flaws, including plotting farms are airports and not zooming in properly.
Apple has said it values customer feedback. In a statement they said: ”We are continuously improving it, and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get,” “We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better,”. Apple is also trying to work with external developers to help improve the Apple Maps app, the spokeswoman also said.
TomTom, who supply the map data, has also said it is “more than willing” to help Apple improve the app.
Although the exact reason is unknown, Apple probably decided to replace Google Maps with “Apple Maps” because of it’s recent fallout with Google due to the Android operating system (YouTube is not pre installed any more either).
