Google vs. Apple Maps: Total Domination

Google Maps for iOS is so much better than Apple's attempt at a replacement that it will make you giggle. But you can't grasp just how much better—almost perfect—iOS Google Maps is unless you see it in action. Here it is, head-to-head with Apple Maps. It's not even close.

Google Maps is exactly what it should be, aside from being the comforting Maps we used to know on our iPhones. It beats the hell out of the last version. Google Maps isn't just back, it's better than it's ever been—the best map app, period.

  • It's fast. Your neighborhoods will load very, very quickly.
  • It's accurate. No stupid erroneous listings.
  • It's beautiful. Cleanly designed.
  • It's easy to use—you can quickly swipe menu options in and out of view.
  • It has public transit.
  • It has Street View.

You won't find yourself frustrated, lost, or yearning like you might've been with Apple Maps. You probably won't have any complaints at all, unless you miss Siri giving you directions.

This is the map app we should have had all along, and you should download it right now if you haven't already. More here.

This Google maps sounds great to me, it sounds like it beats Apple hands down, not that I expected different in all honesty.
