Wow. The new map app is horrible, possibly the worst map display I've seen in years.
Streets and street names are rendered in a manner that doesn't lend itself to easy scanning and comprehension. But seriously, the visual style makes it incredibly hard to use. It looks like a random bunch of words on a biege background. There is no visual coherence whatsoever.
On top of that, there is no street view and no public transit. No longer is it possible to see a picture of where i'm going.
It's almost bad enough to make me want to switch back to iOS5. Maps is one of the few apps I use on regular basis and this is a massive downgrade.
Am I being too harsh? Or is it really that horrible?
