  Haven't been doing this 'internet' thing very long then...  
  Which of course depends on how many people in that audience find it defective. If you're using the internet echo chamber as a guide then it's worth remembering the number of people who said that they would never get an iPhone5 if they shipped it with the 'long ugly' screen. By that reckoning, they shouldn't be selling too well.
  Hey, every mapping app service gets fixed by the users. That's just how it works, unfortunately. If you were using the phone primarily for the mapping app then you should have returned if it didn't work out for you.
        Yes you did. Apple suggested a number of alternatives and Google Maps service is still accessible under iOS6.          Why apologise? Well, given all the whining, I think it was the smart thing to do. Take the lumps and make it better, for which they need folk to use it.    Unpleasant, I know, but a fact of life for this kind of software.    The real mistake they made was relying on Google in the first place. They should have started this project much much sooner....

  You've replied to the wrong message.
  The same way Google did it? You mean release the product and improve it over time?  The advantage they had was that no one was scrutinising every mistake while they were doing it.   You can still find errors in the Google, even though its been running  a lot longer than the Apple service.   And 'inferior' really depends on what you're using it for and where you're going.  The fact that Google didn't offer turn-by-turn directions makes it inferior in quite for quite a...
  None of which has anything to do with testing.
