Personally, I have an iPhone 4S and I am absolutely in love with the Google Maps app. It has an easy to use interface and contains two "killer apps" lacking in Apple's solution: (i) Street View; and (ii) transit information. And not a "killer app" per se, but I also trust Google's maps when it comes to having addresses and streets clearly mapped and having street directions correctly identified.

...

How do you get the street view?

Thanks.

Nevermind.

Not as good, it's arguably better.

Source

And noticeably faster: source.

If you use the right wording. Siri is more flexible, from what I understand.

Not according to the source article provided. Many of those were intentionally vague.

Now doing tasks rather than searches, perhaps that's true. But I have never found using the right wording to be all that difficult in Voice Commands.

In any case, I still don't like talking to my phone. That's just too nerdy even for this geek.

You don't tell your phone good night before putting it on the charger? You cold heartless monster!

Seriously. People just take take take, never say please or thank you or "good phone!"

That's why Skynet was so ticked at us.

I draw the line there. I think it's over the top when you start petting your device.
