|Maps on iOS 6. Stunning and a great improvement on its predecessor.|
As the WWDC goes on live right now, Apple has made some pretty major announcements here, one of which, as I wrote about a few days back is their new Maps application.
Visually, a significant improvement on what was earlier "powered by google". Here's a few things that Apple has added to it's own maps application:
- Stunning visual display
- 3D Mapping
- Turn by Turn Navigation (Looks great!)
- Lockscreen Functionality. (Works and displays on your lock screen)
- Notification enabled ("There is a faster route available. Due to traffic, rerouting can save you ten minutes on your journey". Amazing!)
- Siri Integration (For example - "You: Are we there yet ? Siri: Relax and enjoy the drive. We'll be there in 14 minutes", Also "Where can we get gas?", etc'
