-The world is a crazy place especially if you're using the new Apple Maps application, bridges look like rollercoasters, football stadiums have disappeared but the bigger fail is addresses that are simply wrong.
I used Apple Maps to find a bar where I was meeting friends.
It guided me here to Linden Street.
No bar in sight.
The actual address, 579 Hay Street,
1 block north.

It still thinks we're at Pine Street.
-There were certain hiccups.
It wasn't perfect, but it wasn't bad either.
-If you have upgrader's remorse, there is a quick fix.
maps.google.com in your phone's browser and select add to home screen to create a shortcut.
You can also try other apps such as Navigon and MotionX GPS Drive, or just sit tight.
-I think you're gonna see either Apple making a rush to fix the problems or Google is gonna come up with their own app and they're gonna launch it and that's the app that everyone's gonna use.
-In a statement, Apple said "Maps is a cloud-based solution and the more people use it, the better it will get." Until then, add a few minutes to travel times estimated
by Apple Maps, just in case.
