Apple Promises to Improve Maps Application
After a massive amount of criticism Apple has promised that its maps application will improve.
Since its release users have complained about inaccuracies, towns in the wrong place and a number of key landmarks missing.
Apple says that it appreciates the customer feedback and will work hard to improve the app.
The new application replaces Google maps on the new iOS 6 release; the problems with the software became apparent a day before the new iPhone 5 was release.
Trudy Miller, an Apple spokeswoman, said that the launch of Apple Maps was a major undertaking, “we are continuously improving it and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get,” she said.
TomTom, the company which provided the data for the map app, said that it was “more than willing” to help improve the application.
Users have been mocking and complaining on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and a number of other social media networks since the release.
The BBC also received a number of complaints saying that some towns, such as Stratford Upon Avon, were missing.
At present there is no Google Maps app for iOS but it can be accessed via the phone’s web browser.
