Developers have been complaining about the Maps in iOS since shortly after they were given the first pre-release version in early June, according to “CNET.” They say they filed bug requests, sent e-mails to specific Apple employees, and vented on message boards only other developers and Apple could see.
All of the half dozen developers with whom “CNET” spoke — each of whom have applications that rely on Apple’s maps technology — requested that their names and the names of their applications be kept out of this story because of ongoing relationships with the company, the publication says. However, they say the issues were well-documented among developers, who used four pre-release versions of the software before it was given to the public last month.
Apple declined to comment. You can read more at http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57529147-37/developers-we-warned-apple-about-ios-maps-quality/. .
