Interesting to say the least.
So, to paraphrase, "our maps suck, use someone else's"?
Not very encouraging.
What would you like him to say?
He admits it fell short of what we expect from Apple, He says they are working non stop to make it better, he offers you other solutions if Maps really are that bad for you.
Put the Google maps app on the app store and let the consumer decide, the web browser work around is not as convenient.
As the apple maps improve the turn by turn directions will eventually win out on my phone, but they need time to bake.
What makes you think that there is an iOS6 Google Maps app at all?
This! We want google maps back, at least until Apple Maps is working as intended.
And don't give me that "there is no ios 6 app for google maps." Just use the one from ios 5. Apple can easily do that.
There's one on ios 5 that they can easily "transport" to ios 6. It's not like a whole new operating system.
What hurt me most was loss of detailed traffic data but traffic works w Google mobile so won't be switching to Android for now.
Well, at least he honest about it
Yes, from a purely technical standpoint that would be no problem
What is the problem with Apple Maps traffic?
Not a good start for Cook , there is no way this should have been brought out this early as it was nowhere near ready . Did the guy actually use it before it came out ?
Google maps should have been kept along with new Apple maps till they perfected their own maps , then ditch Google , but thats just common sense ....
I really think they should have 2 icons, one for Google Maps (The old one) and Apple Maps. It should come with both until Apple Maps is really good again.
Everyone with half a brain would have went that route but for some crazy reason Cook decided to release it now .
Cant help thinking Jobs would never have done it this way .
Smart move. Takes a big man to admit a mistake. First step to fixing it.
Yes, it is appropriate that he apologises. Did he have any choice given the disaster that is Maps and the way this is making iPhone users angry all over the world?
Apologise is easy and an appropriate first step, but I'd like apple to make it right by allowing users to restore the old maps until apple's version works properly. Or allow people to move back to 5.1.1 . These are easy measures that would demonstrate goodwill at a time when apple really needs it.
Suggesting other apps just doesn't cut it.
Do you guys understand that the data in Google Maps is not Apple's property and that they probably have to negotiate again before they are able to use it?
I don't really care about the maps thing but I noticed this was less of an apology and more of an excuse. Just sayin'
Had to look up what the difference is, but I think is is something inbetween.
Here's what they do then, swallow their pride, pull their maps and save it for iOS 7. In the mean time call Eric Schmidt and..............
Awesome he published this
Most people would have hidden. It's going to create a lot of publicity.
But because they admitted a mistake (everyone makes mistakes) I will continue to buy their products providing they still evolve.
Unlike BMW who produced a bunch of cars that can be stolen in 30 seconds and deny there is even a problem.
Interested in seeing how this admission affects their share price.
