I think Apple made a bad mistake by removing Google maps from the Iphone 5, I have an HTC ONE X phone which runs off android operating system and google maps is amazing.
My friends who have the new Iphone wish the Google maps feauture was still on it because it is so easy and accurate.
All you have to do is just say where you want to go and it will GPS you right to the spot,that is awesome.
Android is the future of smartphone apps & I bet Steve Jobs rolled over in his grave when Apple dropped their contract with Google.
If you haven't tried it yet, I strongly recommend you use Google maps.
I think it is a must have app for any smartphone,even if you have to buy it.
Don't get me wrong I love Apple but in my opinion Android has surpassed iO5 Maps and it won't be long before Android has the best apps period,if they don't already.
Try street view on Google maps - you can stand there and turn around and it turns with you,it is incredible to say the least.
Anyway I hope you all have a great weekend - Manthy
