5 reasons why I prefer Apple Maps to Google Maps

Apple habilita el transporte público de Madrid en sus mapas

Apple Watch

Otra gran ventaja de usar los Mapas de Apple es si cuentas con un Apps Watch. Google Maps ha dejado de dar soporte para el reloj de Apple, por lo que si quieres indicaciones desde tu muñeca debes utilizar la app de Apple . Además el reloj vibra cada vez que tengamos que girar, algo que puede ser muy útil.

Como Apple no contaba con una gran base de usuarios se asoció con Yelp para dar más información sobre los puntos de interés y restaurantes en el mapa. Ahora se han añadido más aplicaciones por lo que la información es de calidad ya que llega de aplicaciones dedicadas .

Apple Pay

El sistema de pago de Apple se ha extendido en los últimos meses de forma exponencial por nuestro país. Yo ya me he habituado a utilizarlo y los Mapas de Apple nos muestran si los establecimientos son compatibles o no . Algo importante por ejemplo cuando viajas al extranjero.

The appearance of Apple Maps came with a lot of controversy. The maps were not ready and dispensing with Google Maps was a risky option . Although iOS users got two good applications in exchange for one, thanks to the arrival of the Google Maps application in the App Store.

Since then the Apple Maps have been updated with numerous improvements and have gradually reached the expected level. So much so that they are my preferred choice of maps on the iPhone . These are the 5 reasons why I prefer the Google application to the Apple one.

Privacy

Apple and Google are two completely opposite companies in their way of doing business. For Apple privacy is paramount and their goal is to sell devices, not your data . Apple’s own privacy page shows that they do not speculate on user data.

Google however is different, and uses its maps to improve its advertising service . So it will use your location and the places you go to to show you ads.

Integration with Siri

One of the main reasons I prefer Apple Maps. Telling Siri: “Hey Siri, take me home” and having her show you the directions is hard to beat , especially if you’re driving and can’t touch the iPhone. You can also ask Siri for more specific directions. You can even ask her for directions by public transport. We can’t do this on the iPhone with Google Maps.
