    I just posted a poll about youtube, but how about maps. I am making youtube and maps an app which I am hoping a lot of people will buy, so I want to know how much you would pay for the non free version. (free version has ads and less features)

    I'm confused as to why you would attempt to do something that has already been done (youtube app) or is currently being worked on (google maps) by google? What would be the big selling point to make your apps better then googles?

    Youtube is only for iPod and looks bad on iPad 2, and google maps might take a while. Either way, I was hoping might be simpler to use than google's

    It depends. If it's just the app, I wouldn't pay anything...but I would pay big to get Google Maps fully back- including in the back end Map Kits so my 3rd party apps can function fully again.

    Well, I wouldn't pay for the maps, but I can say I run android for my daily, and its a deal breaker for me running iOS.

    I'm running a Galaxy S2 as my main line, and put an ip4 on my secondary to play with. I really like iOS, but without the maps, it's not happening. I have an upgrade on that line, and was considering the 5. I'll wait.

    For anyone who actually 'uses' maps daily (like myself, since the inception of the iphone).....Apple maps is a complete an udder embarrassment. Period. Apple maps doesn't even hold a candle to Google maps....IN ALL ASPECTS/ON EVERY LEVEL. I went to having a phone that beat any GPS unit I could buy in the free market to an app that can't even tell me where my local Subway restaurant is.....so disappointing it's beyond words.

    I'm a frugal person and don't like to part with my $$...I'd shell out 10.00 to get the google app back....instantly and (semi) happily -LOL.

    I wouldn't pay anything or even install it if it was free.

    Why not? If it is because there is the website then what if there were added features with an app?

    I wouldn't mind paying a few quid if it has the same functions as the Android app.

    What makes you think you can make a Maps app that's better than Apple or Google's effort? Any what makes you think Apple will accept it into the app store?

    Zero.

    Apple Maps does what I need. I paid for Navigon years ago, and have never regretted it. I only use maps to do general lookups and neighborhood searches. Apple maps does that just as well.

    Zero.

    Even if Apple Maps is a vastly inferior product in terms of data and useful features, it is Apples choice for integrated Maps which means Google Maps would now be a 3rd party app which wouldn't be tied into Siri or the OS.

    So unless Apple gives users a choice for defaulting apps like Chrome or Google Maps over their own, then we have to learn to either switch to Android or live with Apples decision. And (for now) Ill still put up with Apple.

    I go for potential. Apple's mapping has soooo much more potential, and it's so fast as compared to Google Maps.

    No longer have any use for Google bit-maps.
