The thrilling release of the Nokia’s version of Apple’s iOS is absolutely significant because of the distressing feedback to the company’s own Maps app. New upgrades of iOS 6 eradicated the known Google Maps from the usersof iPad or iPhone and replace it with Apple Maps. The quality and accuracy is gradually falling short of the consumers’ high expectations with Cupertino’s performance. Nokia’s new app is the first free-mapping service to compete with Apple’s version which caused a flap from both media and consumers reviews. Apple preferred to keep distance from its longstanding business partner Google Maps – to privately establish the new set up service. Nokia’s big bang is not the dead end of Apple Maps’ app actually. The developers will also take advantage of Nokia’s weaknesses and incorrect data to formulate another roll of strength against Nokia.An inside information that can be detected even without using an iPhone spy!
