Anyway, keep up the good work. If nothing else you make me, and I suspect many others, thankful we're not as blinkered as you.
"Yes, Maps looks like a disaster, at least in the short term. Not only that, but it's so US-centric that it cuts off postal codes after 5 digits.
People are saying it will get better, that having a massive population use it will swiftly improve the data, that Apple is going to release APIs to make it a platform for other developers who will create integrated public transit apps, and so on. I say... good for them if they can pull that off sometime in the next year, though I don't see how crowdsourcing is going to help with terrible satellite imagery. Meanwhile, the user suffers.
I hope Google releases its Maps app soon.
"Harry, if you rely heavily on Maps do not upgrade. Google is supposedly "putting the finishing touches" on their new mapping application, but until then the data is just plain unreliable and lack of transit directions is horrid."
"It [Google Maps] is here.
It is glorious.
Doubtless you will offer a prompt retraction.
As for my "constant crashing" of threads, perhaps if the Android crew were capable of going one day without denigrating Apple in every single topic in this forum (this one was about Amazon, if I recall correctly), you'd see fewer replies to their provocations.
