They said they loved all their customers yet Google maps for iOS was never updated with any significant features in 5 years.. OTOH, Android saw frequent updates. Screw this and screw street view. It's Apple maps all the way for me. And I at least know it will receive regular updates.
This happened to me many, many times with Google maps... In fact, I think that's why there are so many map alternatives on the App Store now - Because Google maps aren't up to snuff. It's all water under the bridge now, though.Good riddance.
