If apple gets this, i would be so surprised, and i would pay for it. It just sucks timing wise, since they did sorta have a year left with the contract, in which they could have developed apple maps further. either way, this is a cool feature, they now have on google maps or is coming soon. And that seems unlikely with apple maps at the moment, unless they release a huge update for itUhh you guys do realize just because google had these features doesn't mean the iPhone would have them? What real updates did google ever have to the maps app of the iPhone?
I think too many people here miss the real big picture of the departure of google maps. Now apple has the chance to create an in house mapping app they can update and grow. It's their first version of the damn thing for Christ sakes.
It also means if Apple isn't stepping up to the plate google can now have their own app that can be updated on their own schedule as opposed to waiting for iOS updates.
Google Maps, introduced Ocean View today...
Yeah...I think I really would have enjoyed that on an iPad.
I think apple made an uh-oh
Not ocean view mainly, just that they could have developed their own maps app, up to google maps par atleast, and still used google maps on the phones as easily.. It's just jumping the gun, for small reasons that don't seem to make people happy.Wait wait, your base is that they messed up due to Ocean View. It's a gimmick at most....and always remember that Google Maps v 1.0 really stunk
I'm with you on that, I think people are taking this maps thing too far. Google maps on iPhone was pretty arse end for navigation, no turn by turn etc. I only used it twice, Tom Tom was my solution two years ago.Wait wait, your base is that they messed up due to Ocean View. It's a gimmick at most....and always remember that Google Maps v 1.0 really stunk
