Google is known as being a company of innovation yet the google Maps app for iPhone has remained unchanged for a year now. A number of improvements have been made to google maps on the web and google maps for mobile that don't appear on the iPhone + drag and dropping of locations in the directions list + street view!! + looking up public transit routes (feature available on google.com/gmm) These are the kind of things that makes technology exciting. Why have none of these features been incorporated into the Google Maps App after a year? Is it because of google's focus on Android? A little over a month ago google demo'd their streetview with compas feature: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PRfVKzuUJ4 Google's android group and their mobile group (that partnered with Apple) are kept separate to avoid these kinds of conflicts of interest. I wonder though if google's future competitor status is already beginning to prevent us from seeing cool Google maps upgrades among other things in the future on the iPhone.
