Apple’s Maps makes its way
Apple’s Maps on OS X Mavericks.
Apple has updated its Maps application to work on the Mac.
The company’s platform will be built into Apple’s new operating system, OS X Mavericks. Information from the Mac’s Maps can be sent to an iPhone for access on that device. Developers can also bundle the software’s features, thanks to a software development kit, into their own OS X apps.
Apple launched Maps last year with iOS 6. The application was designed to replace Google Maps as Apple’s built-in mapping application. Soon after users got their hands on it, though, they found it lacking in accuracy, overall usability, and featureset.
Apple soon after apologized for Maps’ issues, saying that it would do a better job of delivering the software. In the meantime, Apple suggested that users try out the many other mapping applications already available on the platform through the App Store.[source:cnet]
