The 8 Alternatives to Apple’s Map App in iOS 6

You would have to be living under a rock to not know about the recent controversy to hit Apple. Their iOS 6 Maps App is a complete fail, well not all a complete failure but it does contains a large amount of incorrect data. It’s been laughed at and heavily criticise, it’s even picked up it’s own name, Mapgate. But have your fun while you can because we are sure Apple is working on improving as we speak (well in this case as we type). Improvements could takes weeks. If you’re as impatient as I am, then you will want some good alternatives to keep you going until those improvements come up. Luckily you have iPhoneGlance to the rescue. We have put together 8 great alternatives apps for you to choose from.

Some are free and some are paid, but do keep in mind that not because the app is free  it won’t be as good as the paid ones. Sometimes it all depends on how the map’s data is stored.
