    • MrC39

      Ya that’s right, why would you want something that works?


      I prefer apply map is the best, its just give you a wrong address what is the problem??? i can live with that

    It’s terrible. iOS Maps are much better. Google’s turn to impress!

  • Lukeiphone

    iOS towards perfection! 😀

  • @Kwongie

    nokia FTW!

    it’s not nearly as snappy as Mapples, but so far hasn’t given me directions using streets that don’t exist (happened last on Saturday with Mapples!)
    feels a bit too much like a web page, slow. but accurate placement.

    this is worse than iOS maps, the graphics are still in raster! definitely doesn’t take advantage of the retina display. Its a bit slow on the response…least it gives decent directions, though i havent had the same problem everyone else seems to have with IOS map directions.

    If Tim Cooke needed to apologize for his Maps App, It’s not that good! Google Maps FTW! Hands down #1.

      Obligatory thumbs down.

      What a tool.

  • HEREmaps

    Just downloaded Nokia’s failure of a map app… very disappointing

  • KM

    It’s not horrible, but it feels like they rushed it out the door. The bitmapped maps never look sharp and load pretty slowly. There is only voice navigation for walking. A decent start but lots of room for improvement.

  • BM

    Man, this s**t is horrible. It doesn’t even support public transportation in Ottawa.

  • stalemate

    Apple will be hard pressed to justify not allowing Google’s own maps in the app store now.

  • Garb

    Is the public transportation feature working for anyone?

  • TrickyD

    Smart move from Nokia! They might snag quite a few downloads.

  • stylinred

    im a nokia fanboy and even ill admit that here maps sucks; its worse than the nokia maps on my symbian phone and that doesnt make sense at all….
