When Apple introduced iOS6 last year, the Google Maps on iPhones and iPads were replaced by Apple iOS Maps. There have been several well-documented issues with iOS Maps, as well as some China-specific issues which we’ve written about before.
The good news is that today we’re launching the latest version v9.0 of our Explore Shanghai Metro map, which now puts the choice back in your hands! Tap on a station, tap “Street” and then you’ll have a choice of three options:
- Google Maps, including a 3D perspective view (try dragging with two fingers)
- iOS/Apple Maps
- Offline Maps from Open Street Map
It’s another little way we’re making our apps Asia’s best metro maps 🙂
