The very rarely used words to describe products of Apple like embarrassing, erroneous, illogical, incomplete, annoying, irking, disgusting, and appalling are now being commonly used with the Apple Maps. The New York Times has declared Apple Maps as an appalling first release in Apple’s history that's also the least usable piece of Apple's software. Earlier this month, Apple launched its own mapping device that created high anticipation among Apple fans. But just within a few days, the negative responses started flowing thick and fast.
Apple Maps, based on mish-mash data, lacks important details and provides the users with dangerous directions. Especially when it comes to long distance moving, Apple map is not worth looking at for help. It's because the maps advise long routes and also ignores toll roads. Several hospitals and businesses are placed in wrong location on the maps or are completely missing.
With this failure of Apple, Google's Eric Schmidt says it would have been better if Apple had kept Google Maps. Indeed, Google has spent years together collecting data and refining its systems. Google has more than 7000 staff reporting on its maps while Apple has just started at square one. It seems it will take a very long time to fix the widespread complaints that the buggy iOS 6 Maps has got so far.
