Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature. All in a beautiful vector-based interface that scales and zooms with ease.

Who the hell uses the Maps app anyway? It's the most pointless app ever, regardless of Apple or Google version.

Plenty of people. Including myself. Not only to find addresses for work, but to find near by restaurants or other points of interest.

Are you incarcerated? Maps is the I app I use most, after voice, text, and internet/fb. Maybe you don't get out much.
