In the Apple culture, an issue isn’t an issue until someone important enough says so. Well, is Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak important enough for you?
“I tried to navigate somewhere, and I couldn’t get to where I wanted to by voice,” he said to ZDNet. “So, I was a little disappointed, because I love navigation by voice with my Google [Android] phones, actually, since they always get it and are based on a better database.” Apple has been heavily criticized for its decision to drop Google’s mapping app in favor of its own inferior program. Wozniak thinks the criticism may be overblown, however. “I have been reading about the problems, and I don’t know if they are that severe,” he said, using the iPhone 4 antenna issue as an example. “Sometimes, there are a lot of complaints about one little thing people spot, but it’s not that hard to deal with in life. I don’t know yet about Maps — I’m a little worried about the navigation, but I’ve still got it covered with a bunch of other navigation apps.”
So, lets see I can understand his point of view. The iOS 6 Maps comes out the gate swinging with turn by turn voice navigation features, claims it’s the best on the market, it cannot get you to your said destination correction, but still Woz says “I don’t know if they are that severe?” Wow, I suppose he really is still a part of that culture.
