This is a discussion thread for the "iOS 6 Maps and China" story posted on the front page.
Wait, so Apples Maps is superior to Google Maps because it has data for China. LOFL
No. The article doesn't state that.
For people in China? Yes.
pretty poorly written article in an attempt to make apple seem superior to google. why be so dishonest?
1) "While it is a fact that Google is better in a lot of the world,..." that suggests that its not the majority of the world. Which says to the readers of this blog post that Apple is better in most of the world. Not true.
2) "Specifically, Apple’s iOS 6 mapping solution is superior to what Google was providing in iOS 5 and below." This suggests that Goggle made a sub par app....Sorry, but Apple made that crappy at that amost had no changes to it since 2007.
in order to not be called a fandroid...i don't, and probably will not ever own an Android device. though i would love that Nokia Lumia 920. if apple can make a phone that good i'll stick with apple when my contract is up with my 4S next year
Thank god Apple Maps does at least one thing better than Google's offering because now we can say it's the best maps app ever.
I'm in China and I can confirm that the AutoNavi maps are much better for China than what Google provides.
"While it is a fact that Google is better in a lot of the world, there are certainly places that Google isn’t as accurate – including China, which just happens to be one of Apple’s highest priority markets."
And it's a well-known fact that what Google provided for iOS was not their best, most advanced effort.
As part of iOS 6 was to bring more features to China.
