Apple Redesigns iOS8 Maps with Public Transit Directions and More Features

The Maps on iOS8 have become neater and cleaner than before. Apple is certainly engaged in a tussle with Google which was king in this field up until now. The rivalry between the behemoths goes back a long way. May the best tech firm win! 

According to CEO, Tim Cook, this renewed app will create better navigational and exploratory pathways for people who have itchy feet and just want to take a map and drive forever. The iOS8 Maps are expected to meet the super-high standards that Apple is known for a la the late and great Steve Jobs

Approximately two years ago, Apple stopped siding with Google Maps. Instead, it released its own version. However, that ended in a bit of a mess. The bugs and errors on the system made iOS6 a failure of sorts.

The engineers at Apple have since then put their heads together and come up with an improved edition of Maps. iOS7 was a vast improvement on the previous number. But now for the first time, certain crucial internal features have been reworked by the engineering specialists.

Quite a few organizations worked on this project. They include: BroadMap, Embark and HopStop. The main spots and stops along the way of the extensive cartography will be saliently expressed. They include: airports, train stations, parks and scenery, bus stops and highways. 

The overall effect is one of greater clarity and visual focus. And Apple will be putting additional features into the mix that will figure beautifully on screen. iOS8 Maps will especially cover the major city centers of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. 

Among the final touches on the Maps will be Directions and Walking panels as well as Standard, Hybrid and Satellite views. And users will have free choice regarding which feature to activate and employ in their peregrinations on the roads of the United States.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
