Don't Buy Apple...

Recommended Posts

I updated to iOS 6 on my iPad and iPhone last night. I had no problems on first use, but later on I couldn't connect to WiFi, thats the only problem I have had so far! (Thats all fixed now though)

 

The new Apple Maps look amazing in 3D but there is allot and I mean 'ALLOT' of problems with it! Apparently there is another airport in Dublin, London UK is in Ontario Canada and a train station in Helsinki Finland is a park... I find it incredibly amusing!

 

Some of my friends have been reporting issue's updating to iOS 6 and or turning on the WiFi. Apple have been a major disappointment in the last few months IMO, they haven't pleased the audience as much as they used to and this isn't helping! There were problems with the BETA version also.

 

I expect a few updates to iOS 6 with-in the next few weeks. Im loving the new features!

 

Regards, Ciaran

Not a very helpful topic title, but I'll toss this out for people looking for an alternative to the iOS6 Maps app:

 

How to get Google Maps on iOS6

 

This is pretty cool because it'll place a Google Maps icon on your home screen. The only drawback is that it functions via HTML, so it's a little slower than the pre-iOS6 Maps app.

 

I think it's going to take Apple a just a bit longer than this iOS cycle to get their Maps app up to speed. It really is a mess. I needed directions yesterday and the new Maps app couldn't even find the destination I entered, which was only 6 miles away. Google Maps found it right away.

 

The iOS6 Maps app is definitely not ready for prime time.

C'mon, drink the Kool Aid. It tastes good. My IOS 6 updates on the iPhone and iPad are great. New iPhone 5 should be in my hands within a week.

I've seen many Android users over the years finally realize that the iGadgets are the best, and they set the standard for all others to follow (or copy).

Just joking of course, but I feel compelled to share this quote I saw today -

 

"Having an iPhone5 is the mobile equivalent of wearing the latest Homer Simpson tie"! :lol: :lol:

WARNING!

 

Exploring the new update further, I find that YouTube has been quietly and unceremoniously yanked from the new IOS6. Apparently Apple is not happy with Google eating into their market with android devices and..... boom.

 

This means Google maps and street-view is also gone as has been mentioned, replaced by a so far much inferior Apple replacement.

 

Which means that the use of Google maps on the find my iPhone/iPad app is also gone. Replaced with the inferior Apple made app.............

 

There is a replacement for The missing YouTube app in the Iphone store, but it does not work natively with iPads. Instead, its a wittle, itty bitty app that you can only make better by hitting 2x mode. Apparently Apple is now intent on smacking Google around a bit by making the use of anything Google-made a chore.........

 

Think carefully before updating.

 

*Groan.
