Checkout Google Maps App on iOS 6 [Video]
Apple’s decision to abandon the use of Google Maps app on iOS 6 and the iPhone 5 and replace them with its own software not justified the expectations of smartphone buyers. I have already wrote you about Google maps vs Apple Maps and it really seamed that Apple maps would be better but as we saw it was not.
The new Maps app from Apple aren’t available only for iPhone 5 owners, but users of other iOS devices that will update their operating system to iOS 6 will have a chance to enjoy this app too. However there are a lot of errors were found in the new Maps app: incorrect display of some objects, terrain, roads and rivers. In particular, it has affected people who are outside the United States. Such as restaurants, bars and shops are displayed with a large error, indicated that they are much closer or farther than their actual location.
While some buyers are creating new groups in a social networks, calling “Bring back Google Maps», third-party developers are working to bring Google maps app from iOS 5 to iOS 6. One of those, who was also involved in this issue, is Ryan Petrich, known for his Cydia tweaks for the iPhone and iPad, after jailbreak procedure.
On the eve of the hacker posted a short video on the Web, which in addition to the Apple Maps the device running Google Maps on iOS 6. The hacker has confirmed that his gadget works on the new operating system, and then he started regular Maps app from Apple, and after that – he showed the app but he didn’t show how he got Google Maps app on iOS 6. You can see all functions of the program, including scaling and satellite mode.
In any case, according to Petrich, there is no hope for an early release of Google Maps for iOS 6. Now the program doesn’t works stable. Also even if will have the chance to see Google Maps app on new operating system from Apple that would be only after iOS 6 jailbreak and don’t forget that this jailbreak is possible only on A4 devices which means that A5 and A5X devices are out.
