Poor Apple Fanboys still feel that Apple did justice to them with their crappy maps support. They tried to get innovation in terms of 3D maps and as a result removed Google maps. Their strategy made them fall flat on their face

Apple: Hey Google. How about adding some of that sweet turn by turn nav you got for iOS.

Google: Nah, don't feel like it.

Apple: But we're your customer. How about now?

Google: Nah, Suck it. what you gonna do?

Apple: Pack your bags fool. No more money from us.

Google: Huh? WTF? We're Google. You can't do that do that to us.

Apple: Those are your bags on the curb right?

Google: Ok! OK! Here's a better App than on Android. With turn by turn.... For free. An we might even throw in a cut of the advertising with you in the future.

Apple: Now that wasn't so bad was it. You can now come suck at the teat again.

The app is too slow when browsing the map on an iPhone 4, poor frame rate and lotts of stuttering, but it is nice to have another app with street view.

At the time they were the best phone by a fair way (but still had some limitations like no fm radio and itunes which I never liked) I came over to apple from a Nokia n82. I left apple when the SGS2 came out.
