Apple is coming up on an anniversary of sorts. It’s not something they would like to celebrate though. It’s the one year marker of the less than stellar roll out of Apple Maps which accompanied the iOS 6 to the market in September of last year.
Let’s just say it didn’t go well. Critics worldwide panned the product. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook issued a public apology. This is not the stuff of a Steve Jobs led Apple for sure.
Since that time Apple has been trying to right the wrong and have made strides. The latest, as reported by All Things D, is the purchase of Locationary. It’s interesting that these folks should land at Apple and John Paczkowski tells us why.
