Google Maps Returns to the iPhone

Episode 935 (1:58:54)

Google Maps returned to the iPhone Thursday and immediately became the most downloaded app of the year and will likely be for awhile. Leo says this is because Apple Maps is such a dismal failure. Even police in Australia are warning users to not use Apple maps because it could be very dangerous. Three motorists were stranded in the Australian desert because they were told by Apple Maps that the town was 45 miles away from where it actually was!

Leo says that Apple's mistake was over confidence, pulling the plug a year before they actually had to and not beta testing their maps app before cutting Google loose.
