Google to help iOS 6 users by bringing Google Maps Street View to Mobile Safari
David Pogue from The New York Times
is reporting that Google will be bringing Street View to Mobile Safari via http://maps.google.com/
. Just like David Pogue I got lost using Apple's Maps app on my iPhone 5 last Friday while trying to visit my newborn niece in the hospital. It was at that moment I knew Apple had failed. Luckily I had my Galaxy Nexus with me and it saved the day. It got me to where I needed to be and that experience was enough to make me not use Apple's Maps apps because it just doesn't work reliably. Getting lost one time is enough to make a person not trust/rely on something that should just work. Hopefully Google will make an iOS 6 version of Google Maps and more importantly Apple should approve it, instead of making iOS users beta test a half baked solution. Getting to where you need to go is more important to me than helping Apple test something that clearly isn't ready for prime time.
