Apple’s new Maps app for iOS 6 may be pretty, but it’s left some users lost and complaining from wherever they’re stranded. Some recent suggestions from Apple offer ideas for new mapping solutions that iPhone users may find helpful.
In a recent statement, Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized for the lack of customer satisfaction with Maps and proposed several workarounds as the company tries to iron out its issues. Cook suggested alternative map apps from Bing, MapQuest and Waze or trying Google and Nokia mobile web mapping services. He also noted that users can create an icon on their home screen that goes directly to these web services.
Several sites also reported Apple launched a new featured section in its App Store that focuses on mapping options, including the ones Cook mentioned. Other listed apps include options from Garmin, MotionX and Magellan, whose “RoadMate USA” app is $49.99.
