Apple’s Maps Are Still Lost | TechCrunch

Why didn’t they appear? One tipster says it was a personnel issue: “Many developers left the company, no map improvements planned for iOS 8 release were finished in time. Mostly it was failure of project managers and engineering project managers, tasks were very badly planned, developers had to switch multiple times from project to project.”

Apple Working Double Shift to Release Maps ‘Version 2.0′ | PadGadget

We know that there are resource changes happening at Apple, but it seems the are also kicking development into high gear (working double shifts) in preparation for Maps version 2.0.

First thing Cue did was fire Richard Williamson, the man previously in charge of Maps. The second thing Cue did was take on the expanded role left vacant by Williamson’s departure. This move will either be brilliant or a disaster, depending on whether Cue has the capacity to properly handle everything in his portfolio (he is also responsible for Siri, another app from Apple that is subject to some criticism).

Old Maps vs. New Maps

Old Maps vs. New Maps | Vore

As far as I can see, the data supports three conclusions:

1. Given our set of data, old Maps doesn’t fare that much better than new Maps.

2. There seems to be a significant difference in the way the two companies approach the task of returning search results, with Google doing whatever it takes to get any result out, while Apple seems to prefer accuracy above all.

3. In the end, this is not really a particularly useful test insofar as determining the accuracy of Maps. At best, we get to see how good Apple is as at finding things, but with targets as big as whole towns we’re unlikely to unearth any information that is really useful.

Source: Apple Aggressively Recruiting Ex-Google Maps Staff To Build Out iOS Maps | TechCrunch

My source — a contractor who worked on Google Maps as part of a massive undertaking to integrate Street View and newly licensed third-party data to improve European coverage, as well as develop the platform’s turn-by-turn navigation — says that when attention turned to indoor mapping, things started to become less interesting and a lot of staff began looking around for other opportunities. That turned out to be good timing for Cupertino.
