Apple Further Develops Maps App Flyover, Improves Support For California
Apple is continuing to improve its Maps app, having recently added flyover support for a number of cities in California, according to AppleInsider. The website explains:
First spotted by AppleInsider reader Mike M., the additions show Apple is actively updating its mapping assets after the much maligned service was introduced in September of last year. The new support includes San Bernardino, Riverside, Rancho Cucamonga, Ontario and Moreno Valley, among others. With the additions, Maps offers nearly unbroken Flyover coverage of cities from San Bernardino to the Pacific Ocean.As a reminder, Apple's Maps app met with severe criticism back when it launched with iOS 6, last year. Namely, the application's 3-D flyover feature, which allows users to see 3-D images of select towns and cities, didn't work as anticipated. Having added improved flyover support for Paris last month, and support for Cologne and Vancouver in March, however, it's clear that Apple is working hard to improve its Maps application. Let's hope the Maps app keeps on getting better! We'll keep you posted on its progress.
