Playing around with Maps on my iPad, the software is the best I've ever used. It's smooth as butter, and the vector graphics are perfect. I love the text scaling and easy rotation. You can easily zoom and rotate the maps canvas as if you were holding a paper maps. That being said, the DATA is not good. And I agree 100% with the criticism relating to the map related data (flyover images and point of interests). But I do think Apple developed an amazing software platform for Maps. But the data sucks. I don't blame Scott Forstall for that. So as long as the data can improve with time, I think Apple has something going for them with this.
