I've just tried to get my business on Apple Maps. It's based at my home address and I get regular visitors (mainly clients, admittedly very little passing trade). "We apologise, but at this time we are only accepting businesses with a retail storefront or commercial location that our users can actually visit during the business day. Thank you for your understanding." I guess because my business is run from home, they decided it wasn't a place people could visit? I did correct them on this, but they still refused. It's fair enough - their app, their rules. But it seems a little odd. All that's going to do is ensure my website uses alternative mapping software and any links for directions will be using Apple's rival's map software. Also odd that Apple don't seem to want Apple maps to be all that useful.
