Whenever you look to locate a place or just see the topography, you tend to use Google Maps. It has been that way for years, and it has indeed made a lot of people very happy and satisfied. After years of working and dreaming about an in-house mapping solution, Apple has now got through in its venture on the same terrain. The new app features a brand new navigation bar that is not blue, but silver in color.
The map will be integrated onto iOS 6 along with a lot of other exciting features. Similar to Android’s Google Maps, the iOS 6 map app will feature a ‘locate-me’ button on the bottom left of the screen.
If you peel back the lower right corner of the maps, you can enable the 3D mode. This easy feature should be very popular once it is out.
By tapping a 3D icon on the lower left corner of the screen, you can enable or disable the 3D mode. This is a pretty nifty feature too.
The app is currently being tested in 10A3XX build of the iOS 6 and is almost done. Now only one question remains, will it be enough to beat Google Maps?
Or at least, will it be on the same level? There is a chance for that after a couple of years, but not right away. Particlarly not since Google Maps have been providing satisfactory experiences to their customers and haven’t let them down much.
