Apple in Trouble: Apple Fiercely Hiring Former Google Maps Employees
According to a latest report by TechCrunch Apple is fiercely hiring former and current Google Maps employees as part of its effort to tune and scale up its own Mapping solution up to user’s satisfaction.
My source — a contractor who worked on Google Maps as part of a massive undertaking to integrate Street View and newly licensed third-party data to improve European coverage, as well as develop the platform’s turn-by-turn navigation — says that when attention turned to indoor mapping, things started to become less interesting and a lot of staff began looking around for other opportunities.
We all know well that Apple has divorced Google Maps and introduced its own 3D mapping solution in new iOS 6. But new Maps App in iOS 6 is almost #iLost to many users thus it has turned into iOS 6’s most criticized feature so far. Apple promised to fix the issue but it seems that Apple engineers and software experts have failed in putting things right to their positions. So Apple decided to hire former and present Google Maps employees in bulk to address the issue.
Let’s see when Apple gets rid of this trouble. By the way Ryan Petrich has succeeded in porting Google Maps to iOS 6. And if he releases a jailbreak in this concern to the public, no one should even like to see apple nasty Maps app. Apple might hire Ryan Petrich too….just a free advice without any mass, ……..ah!Apple, google, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch
