Thread: iOS6 - Apple Users

  1. #1

    iOS6 - Apple Users

    Sources close to Apple have given clues to a feature in development for iOS 6: a completely new in-house maps application to replace google maps which has been running since 2007.

    The app design is said to be very similar to what is currently Google Maps program over the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but with new and fresh features described as being much cleaner, faster, and more reliable.

    Staffs, of course.

    Re: iOS 6

    I find google maps clean, fast and reliable to be fair. The good thing about google maps is the existing user-generated content. So all the names, tel numbers and locations of businesses and useful sights etc.

    It'll take years for apple to get the same content. And I bet you it's launched in the US first so we'll have shed loads of their content over here (like US businesses and whatnot) and not much for the small business in the UK until he or his customer contributes to it.

    Bad move IMO. Just IMO though.

    I'm on the fence....

    The most important aspect of the new Maps application is a powerful new 3D mode. The 3D mode does not come enabled by default, but users simply need to click a 3D button that is conveniently and visibly stored in the app. Perhaps under the fold like the current traffic, pin, and map view buttons. This 3D mode is said to essentially be technology straight from C3 Technologies: beautiful, realisitic graphics based on de-classified missile target algorithms.

    Looking forward to June

    iOS 6 will likely be introduced at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference in mid-June
