Comments and Ratings for Google Maps
Why on earth does the map "pivot"?? (4.1.0)
12/16/2014 7:44:00 PM
1/5 By Fresh like produce
Once upon a time, there was an update to this otherwise excellent app, where the map now rotates all over the place and you have absolutely no idea what you're looking at. The arrow should always point North, no rotations.

What happened with Street view? (4.1.0)

Although I still wouldn't go back using Apple Maps, I've become completely disenchanted with Google's Streetview feature functionality. Dropping a pin and getting anything other than "near" such and such an address is virtually impossible- even when it's right on top of a specific building. 99.9% of the time a result of "near" won't give you a Streetview option.
Living in a new city, I find it very useful to be able to have a visual of the place I'm trying to get to.
Having to finally find a drop point miles away to be able to switch to Streetview then navigate back to the place you're looking for is, frankly, Unacceptable.
Wow. Reaching Apple Maps reliability here. Take your finger off the Update key, Google! Streetview comes back then returns to being bass awkward.
12/15/14 becoming perilously close to being the crappiest map app available in the store. Even for free.

Keeps Snapping Back To Home (4.1.0)

I used to really like Google Maps. Now just ok. On iPhone 5 EVERY time I am pinched in on a location and moving around to see it, GM suddenly goes back to my present location. VERY annoying. I then have to zoom out, relocate where I was looking and try zooming in to it again. Only to eventually have it snap back to my present location again. Hate that bug. Going to try another map app.
Terrible changes! (4.1.0)

Too Simple to Use (4.1.0)
12/14/2014 12:18:00 AM
3/5 By Shufei
The latest trend for the Silicon Valley set is toward the minimalist design which Apple made chic. Graphical analogies are out. So is muscle memory and detail when needful. Unfortunately, that means so is usability for all but the cognoscenti is reduced. The new Google maps lacks the ready display options which make it usable. Buttons are increasingly hidden. So are scales and legends. Cutesy-poo finger gestures are meant to take the place of obvious thumb controls. For a blue collar person with calloused fingers, touch screens are fickle enough as it is. Now I find that the app has dropped pins randomly when I can't even find an option to drop pins when I wish. Much like he equally botched Google Earth, I find that attempts to zoom in are quickly zoomed OUT so that I can not even find where I was in the map. I doubt Google will listen to users to correct these design issues. The brave new world is for programs to anticipate what we want. And if we did not want to pan when a pan or tilt is ordained, tough luck.
The maps are there. The terrain contours are more clear. Two stars for that. And a star for effort.
Was my go-to, now I'd rather use Apple Maps. (4.1.0)

1/5 By What happened.
Everything was fine with this app until the newest update came out. Then the moving tracker was taken away, twisting the arrow itself instead which was terribly inconvenient, and since I've used it, I've been lead to the wrong location every single time. Going back to the default direction app for iPhone. What the hell happened?
Robert Frost Used Google Maps (4.1.0)

5 stars because my life is 1000x more interesting when I use google maps for directions. Here's the proof:
1) I had never seen, much less partaken in, a small town Christmas Parade until Google routed me right into the middle of one. This was an amazing experience except I had no candy to throw. Next time you route me through a parade at least tell me to pick up some candy.
2) Everyone said it was pointless to get a 4x4, Google Maps helps me prove them wrong. "Turn right onto 'North Unpaved Serial Killer's Hangout Avenue' continue straight"
3) Google Maps is like that friend that always has awful ideas but you still listen to anyway. "Continue onto On-Ramp currently under construction, come on don't be a b***"
Overall Google maps is the best! Don't give yourself the option to "take the road less traveled" use Google Maps and be forced too. Flat tires in the middle of nowhere on a dark miserable highway are all the rage this season.
New google maps has feature bloat (4.1.0)
12/13/2014 9:46:00 PM
1/5 By Derrilld
Why do they change a good product? I was perfectly happy with the old google maps. Nice clean interface. The new one is confusing showing way too much irrelevant especially while I'm driving. I need to get the information in real time. Don't overload me with useless junk. Don't mess with a good app. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Price is not right (4.1.0)

In late summer, I bought a nice bracelet. I went into the store today (12/13/14) as I wanted to buy 3 more of the bracelets as gifts. The price was raised $4.00 from the first time I bought the bracelet. When I brought it to the attention of the clerk, she just shrugged her shoulders. I only gave this store a 3-star because of the customer service.
Way to go.... (4.1.0)

Way to go Google. Seriously. I really appreciate it when you decide to do a major update to your app around the most traveled time of the year- Thanksgiving.
The app was so much better (better than any other map) until some idiot decided to change it. Thanks for making our travel 10,000 times more complicated then it needed to be. Whoever's idea it was to ask 800 questions about our trip, move buttons in all sorts of strange places, not recognize locations, give me a ton of irrelevant destinations seriously needs to be fired. This new update is a hot mess. Thanks for making travel more complicated.
Please do something about this nightmare and I beg you- do it BEFORE Christmas so no one needs to experience this catastrophe. Please fix this, I beg you. I am used to a high standard of excellence from your apps and you can't let me down now.
Thanks for the "suggested shorter route"..... You sent us down a dirt road with STREAMS flowing through it. Only for the road in the middle of the woods to be closed off. Sigh. What in the hell, Google.
NYC Resident (4.1.0)

Use the Google maps app for every day driving in and out of the New York City metropolitan area. With the updated Google maps app there are two main problems that need to be fixed:
1. The app no longer lets you set the moving arrow to be moving with you in the direction that your car is going. Meaning when you look at the map, the arrow could be running to the right when you're headed North and you can not choose which way you want the map to be focused. It always reverts back.
2. In the New York City region, this map is not quick enough to react to exits that come up right after you've made a previous exit. Meaning when you get off the ramp to get on another ramp Google maps tells you stay on one highway and then three seconds later has you getting off on an exit and it's too late and you have to backtrack. I would guess this is a distance calculation issue.
On the flipside, I love the new feature that lets you choose a new quicker route as you're traveling. I would use this map app over the iPhone map app.

The map navigation on screen was reduced considerably. Now, both the native Maps and Waze are better for driving directions.

Does direction, street view to see how the location looks before I get there. I wish there was a way to default to Google Maps instead of Apple’s second rate map.

This app is always updating to be more user friendly and accurate. Yeah sometimes I'm inside of a building in the city instead of on the street when I turn swiftly, but it's PPG what can u expect. Regardless, the MOST trustworthy map app out there ever. Never fails me

Fails in every category for a GPS program
Use: unflexible routes, you can only use the given routes to you. if you try to rotate, the program will glitch into thinking that you're trying to zoom. So you get the mix of rotation and zoom.
Graphics: improved visual, but at the cost of battery power, usage, and more data usage.
Offline maps: tedious means to open... still dont know how to open up offline maps.
you want to avoid tolls?... well too bad. you have to use them.
you know a better route that is shorter and faster and it also avoids tolls? too bad.
