If it's fully integrated with Siri, I'm all for it.
Heard you can force it to bring up transit directions for you.
IOS has the most compete mapping choices of any environment
It could be Craig though...
Craig did OS X demos multiple times and now he's in charge of OS X and iOS.
Ive is more of a behind-the-scenes guy.
Or it could be Phil. He basically can do anything
-iWork for iPad
-iPhones, iPods, iPads
Or it could be Eddy Cue. He might demo Maps, Siri, iCould stuff.
Yeah I like Craig and Eddy for keynotes, both of them do presentations really well.
we already have accurate locations to starbucks or any place those hippies are hanging out. this is dumb.
I like Craig too, although I felt kinda bad for him when he demoed Mountain Lion gestures. No need to be so nervous, buddy!
Australians can't even read road signs or elect a government that produces an accurate guide, and then in turn blames the result of their faulty information on Apple. Being the mayor of their local coffee shop shouldn't be a priority for them IMHO.
I love Foursquare. It has some good features and user friendly.
Steve Wozniak is one of them.
Man, sometimes it's hard to understand the users here.
Since September you can't enter the forum without spotting a topic on how awful maps is and how apple isn't fixing it quick enough.
Now, a rumor comes out that apple it's trying something to try and fix it and people complaint because there trying to fix it.
If you guys have ever used foursquare before, you know how accurate the data is and it's well maintained by they're users.
you may want to find the person that keeps ******** in your wheaties
I don't don't think you understand how deep the roots go for Apple's Maps.
I've used Gowalla and other services but Foursquare has been the best and most accurate. I wouldn't mind Apple just flat out buying Foursquare. I want to buy coffee with my Apple ID! I jest ...I think?
Not going to happen.
Don't get confused. Not everyone here wants to see Apple succeed and some will go at length to downplay any positive news concerning Apple.
The whole point of the "jumped the shark" reference is that it's only downhill from that point.
I'm well aware of that.... They are starting to look like Microsoft.
Lol yeah, everyone was giggling at his Game Center ID: Hair Force One... Hahaha
You likely never will. Some folks aren't comfortable doing such things and
Sir J may be one of them. Which could be why someone else always showed the hardware.
I disagree. I haven't had any problems with Apple Maps, and I suspect that the majority of people agree that they haven't had any problems with it. Just because 10% of people have had problems and have made noise and have been heard doesn't mean "most" people have found it so flawed that they'll never use it again.
I have downloaded Google Maps to my iPhone, but I've used Apple maps twice since and I haven't used Google Maps yet. The next time I visit Boston (in a few weeks,) I'll probably have to break out Google Maps for some transit directions, but other than that, I'll mostly be sticking with Apple Maps.
There have been big changes from iOS 4 - 6. iCloud alone would qualify as a significant update. Siri may be Beta but in all honesty it works quite well.
I don't think the average user knows what a big feature is. When prompted for what should be added most remain mute.
Most people are pretty simple. They want to surf the web, make phone calls, gather and manage email, game and take photos. At this point ,there is little revolutionary stuff that is coming until the dust settles and everyone is so bored that they are in a slumber.
Hmmmm.... You should read things again, and understand it the 2nd time.
Apple should just integrate TomTom and call it a day.... i wouldnt feel good about allowing Google to just have the crown and bragging rights that apple gave up.. what happens if Google pulls the app off of the app store??
apple needs a functional app and tomtom would do it... which is already integrated with Facebook and Foursquare (social media features that i dont even use)
Oh believe me, I know!
But it gets frustrating to read post after post of people complaining(granted, it's well deserved with maps) and then bi*** too when they try to fix it.
Mostly, it's the same way I feel with all the iOS wish list threads. Why ask for some feature if your going to complaint whether its implemented or not. Much like notifications center.
"Why is Apple creating a browser. They should just leave it up to Microsoft. They need Internet Explorer"
routinely read circa 2003.
"Apple can't beat Nokia..why are they even trying" circa 2007
In reality Apple is a LOT closer to delivering parity with Google Maps then they were in closing the gap with Microsoft's Internet Explorer with Safari 1 or Nokia with the first iPhone.
The company has a history of rapidly advancing a product. Apple Maps will be no different. By the third major revision those using Google Maps will be jaded luddites fearful of the new future.
Please don't confuse your opinion with actual facts.
Early signs of Apple's life apart from Steve.
Why can't Apple & Google just COOPERATE and do a really good map that BOTH of them can work together on and make it the best one ever???
