Google Maps Pros
✓ I would give this a five starsIf you can let us zoom out as far as google earth if possible more please.Version: 5.21
✓ The best all round mapping appI find the quality of the maps to be pretty good, although the colour contrast could be better on my desktop PC. Fine on iOS. Streetview is extremely useful for many things, not least checking out a place before you go there. The biggest thing for me is the richness and quality of the pin data. This is particularly good as a lot of it is crowdsourced from the public who can add new things and edit mistakes. I’ve compared areas I know well with the other mainstream mapping apps like Apple and Bing and google wins hands-down. I’ve had timeline turned on for a few years now and find it really useful and interesting. Perhaps that’s not ideal for people who are paranoid about google knowing where you go though. I personally don’t care. One annoyance is having edits rejected by people or machines who clearly don’t know the area. I know it’s wrong! I live here / was just standing there! It took three attempts to change a car park’s address from “Burger Bar, Church St.....” Madness! The app could do with a field where you can leave a note for the reviewer..Version: 5.57✓ Google Maps Positive Reviews
Google Maps Cons
✗ Why “fix” something that wasn’t broke?!When Apple maps recently changed from listing street names to referring to local streets by interstate highway numbers (useful for interstate travel only since many streets of different name have the same number!!) I made the switch to google maps, only to find out that day google had also changed to doing the same thing! I’m not sure if this is already restored to names, but if not please do not. In USA you might refer to highway numbers but not here for regular drivers! Also I can’t even tell which one is the route line amongst the multitude of traffic coloured lines and road lines. The route gets lost among the other lines as it is indistinguishable at quick glance. I spend my time trying to figure out the map instead of watching the road. I am bewildered how you could make a great product worse except on purpose. No one would make these changes except as sabotage that is how bad they are. Who is responsible for this? *Sigh*.Version: 5.1
✗ Bugs since updateOriginal review: I was a big fan of Google maps as it was so useful for travelling. However, since the most recent update I've noticed an annoying bug. When you click a business it comes up with reviews from the previous business that you pressed - not the current one. I.e. it does not update. Very annoying - please fix. Update: I have cleared the cache and restarted my phone as suggested. Unfortunately, the problem still persists. When you click on a few locations, all show the same review as the first location that you clicked. In order to see the relevant reviews for the current location you have to close the app but the issue then repeats. Prior to the recent update it used to do the same for photos ie. It would occasionally show the same photos for different businesses when you clicked on 'photos'. However, since the latest update this has been fixed, but the issue now applies to reviews instead..Version: 5.17✗ Google Maps Negative Reviews
