  • Apple Maps overhaul includes time-based directions, more detailed maps

    I'm excited that Apple Maps will get another great update, especially the bus routes and navigation. Although I think Apple Maps is easier to use and better designed, I primarily use Google Maps for its wealth of data.

    I live in Taiwan, and use maps mainly to look for restaurants and locate stores, and secondarily to search for bus routes. Here Google is king when it comes to restaurant information: offering ratings, reviews, photos, menus, and even third-party delivery and reservation services. This is an instance where the quantity of the data is really helpful, and Apple Maps just can't competitive in its current state. I would gladly switch to Apple Maps if it met my needs, especially for the added privacy, but I'm guessing the tightly focused Apple way will need more time until it makes a serious, concerted push into broadening the scope of its maps app.
