Apple hasn’t given up on their map app…you might think that it’s screwed up and done for, but Apple has big plans for the mobile app.
According to Apple Insider Apple has put out a request for about 10 software engineers to contribute and help fix Maps.
They really want to improve the app’s Flyover feature and 3D terrain visualization component for better optimization, performance and usability. The app originally garnered a ton of criticism from the industry over not being better than what it should have been. Despite criticisms, Apple is still trying hard to fix the app.
