Tim Cook pide disculpas por los Maps de Apple e invita a los usuarios a utilizar otras apps

28 septiembre of 2012 by

En un movimiento muy raro, el CEO de Apple, Tim Cook se disculpó públicamente por la nueva aplicación de mapas de la compañía, la cual sustituyó a Google Maps en el iPhone.

Cook admitió que la aplicación de mapas “se quedó corta” en el compromiso de la compañía para proporcionar la “mejor experiencia posible”, el director general incluso también recomiendó que los clientes utilicen otras aplicaciones de mapas, incluyendo los de Google, mientras que Apple sigue trabajando para mejorar su propia appa.

La aplicación de mapas ha sido ampliamente criticada tanto por los críticos como por los clientes, por tener muchos errores fundamentales en la cartografía 3D y direcciones, y por estar debajo de la norma establecida por Google Maps.

Aqui la carta de Tim Cook

To our customers,

At Apple, we strive to make world-class products that deliver the best experience possible to our customers. With the launch of our new Maps last week, we fell short on this commitment. We are extremely sorry for the frustration this has caused our customers and we are doing everything we can to make Maps better.We launched Maps initially with the first version of iOS. As time progressed, we wanted to provide our customers with even better Maps including features such as turn-by-turn directions, voice integration, Flyover and vector-based maps. In order to do this, we had to create a new version of Maps from the ground up.There are already more than 100 million iOS devices using the new Apple Maps, with more and more joining us every day. In just over a week, iOS users with the new Maps have already searched for nearly half a billion locations. The more our customers use our Maps the better it will get and we greatly appreciate all of the feedback we have received from you.

While we’re improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app.

Everything we do at Apple is aimed at making our products the best in the world. We know that you expect that from us, and we will keep working non-stop until Maps lives up to the same incredibly high standard.
