After facing huge criticism over omissions and errors in the new iPhone map app, Apple has promised that it will soon improve the service.
Apple iPhone’s Map app, created to replace Google Maps, drew criticism after owners reported missing towns, inaccurate and out of date local business information and myriad other errors.
According to the Telegraph, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller admitted that the Maps app needs work.
“We launched this new map service knowing that it is a major initiative and we are just getting started with it,” the paper quoted Muller, as saying.
“We are continuously improving it, and as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get,” she added.
Muller said that the firm ‘is also working with developers to integrate some of the amazing transit apps in the App Store into iOS Maps.’
“We appreciate all of the customer feedback and are working hard to make the customer experience even better,” she added.
