AMERICAN PHONE MAKER Motorola has become the latest company to have a pop at Apple's disastrous Maps application.
Ever since IOS 6 was released last week, Apple has been met with widespread criticism for its Google Maps replacement. Both Idevice users and rival gadget makers have been quick to mock Apple's new Maps application due to its lack of public transport information, inaccurate directions and claims that certain places - such as Tottenham Court Road station in London don't exist.
Motorola Mobility is the latest company to revel in Apple's mistake, which it has done using an advert for its new Razr M smartphone. Motorola posted the advert on its Google+ page with the anti-Apple tagline, "Looking for 315 E 15th in Manhattan? Google Maps on DROID RAZR M will get you there & not #iLost in Brooklyn."
This comes paired with a picture of the Motorola Droid Razr M with Google Maps displaying the correct location in Manhatten, while Apple, unsurprisingly, wrongly shows it located in Brooklyn.
Apple responded to criticism of its app last week, saying lamely that it will get better as more people use it. An spokesperson from the company said, "We are continuously improving it, and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get. We're also working with developers to integrate some of the amazing transit apps in the App Store into IOS Maps."
