Google has gotten under Apple's skin, for them to replace a perfectly functional mapping app (one of the key uses of a smart phone for may people) with something is lousy:
Doesn't really inspire confidence, does it? It shouldn't:
Things aren't really off to a good start for Apple's replacement to Google Maps. Apple pushed their iOS 6 update to iPhone and iPads on Sept. 19, 2012 and it came standard with a new maps app. While the entire world is buzzing about Apple's iPhone 5 release, people are also scratching their heads when it comes to Apple Maps ... These shots of the Brooklyn Bridge would make any commuter worried to drive over it! Check out more Apple Maps fails, like incorrectly labeled cities, bridges that look like they're collapsed and other major geographical falsities ...Incorrect information reported all over the place from the mapping app? The only thing left to wonder is whether, when you enter the search address of "1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA" the new Apple maps app displays the result "There be dragons".
Epic, brand damaging fail.
