Steve Wozniak – Apple’s co-founder has revealed that he is ‘a little disappointed’ with iOS 6 Maps app, but feels that the severity of the flaws may have been exaggerated.
Apple has been heavily criticized for replacing the Maps app that used Google’s data with its own in-house developed Maps app.
Steve Wozniak, Chief scientist at IT storage company Fusion-io, speaking at a company event in Sydney, said that he is loving his iPhone 5, but was little disappointed with Apple’s Maps app. Here’s what he had to say:
“I tried to navigate somewhere, and I couldn’t get to where I wanted to by voice. So, I was a little disappointed, because I love navigation by voice with my Google [Android] phones, actually, since they always get it and are based on a better database. [..]
[..] I have been reading about the problems, and I don’t know if they are that severe. [..]
[..] Sometimes, there are a lot of complaints about one little thing people spot, but it’s not that hard to deal with in life. I don’t know yet about Maps — I’m a little worried about the navigation, but I’ve still got it covered with a bunch of other navigation apps.”
Apple has responded to the criticism over lack of features and glaring mistakes in the iOS 6 Maps app and has said that it is working hard to improve it.
Reports also claim that the team assigned to the Maps app is under lockdown right now working to fix it.
What about you? Are you also disappointed with the iOS 6 Maps app?
