Google should add streetview and directions (especially transit) to Google Earth for iOS (they’re there in the desktop version) ASAP.
But that’s not what will happen.
Google will wait until it can serve an ad-jamed clusterfuck app to iOS users we’ll hate so much that we’ll accept the limitations of iOS Maps (many of which might be solved by that time).
I wonder if Microsoft had purchased Nokia by now and enhanced Bing maps with it how this story might be different. Bing maps remains to this day impossible to use because it doesn’t find addresses well, even when you give it an address.
Talking about Maps and the Google/Apple divorce is getting boring. Even as we learn more information it’s still boring. I’ll write about something cool soon.
