Here it is Steve Jobs, an ice cold cup of water for your iOS hell. Google have done a terrific job with this app. It’s UX is outstanding, it’s maps are beautiful, it’s fast and fluid, it offers driving, walking and most importantly (to me) public transport directions as well as turn by turn navigation which Apple themselves couldn’t offer me on the same iOS version.. weird huh?
It ceases to amaze me how Apple constantly ignore older devices, turn by turn navigation and panorama mode just to name a couple of features that should have been available to my iPhone 4. But they’re not and people still call Apple the best when the clearly couldn’t give a damn about you the user after you buy their devices. Yearly updates rather than incremental updates ensure that they don’t have to give any old devices everything new.
It’s probably the fastest app I have on my iPhone 4 running iOS6. Download it here.
