I only compared both maps apps at their current state, which should actually count as of now, because I use my phone today and tomorrow and not 6 years ago. If Apple Maps is the best Maps Service in 5 years, then so be it, but just like I said, the current state counts.

Google is apples bitch. They do whatever they can not to loose the users even if its making their services better on iPhones. If you've used the google maps, you'd know it's prettier than the one for android

Tim cook even had to issue a written apology and many people lost their jobs at apple due to this, it was so bad. Why would you defend apple? Do you work for them? I can guarantee you they don't know who or care about you.

It was a good advantage of android to have exclusively googlemaps, many people are swithing their now obsolete iphone5 produced by foxxcoon, to latest Galasy S3 phones and note2. Android is the KING

Google already has a track history of copying Apple, so it makes sense :))

The difference is because it was little Google that released it, and no-one cared back then.
