Apple has been taking a lot of heat regarding its new Maps application, which replaced Google Maps. Inaccuracies and missing features in the app have spawned a parody Tumblr and Twitter account, in addition to quite the uproar in the tech world. AndroidCentral noted that Motorola is the first to capitalize on the criticism, by creating an “iLost” ad (shown above). Their new advertisement just popped up on their Motorola’s Google+ page that shows the iPhone 5 and Motorola’s new Droid RAZR M both with their Maps app loaded.
“Looking for 315 E 15th in Manhattan? Google Maps on DROID RAZR M will get you there & not #iLost in Brooklyn.
The real world that’s fit for your hand”
iDownloadBlog said “There’s no question that Apple’s Maps app comes up short compared to Google’s. Google has been doing this for 7 years, and has thousands of people on its payroll collecting data via planes, trains and automobiles. And Apple is, well, hiring.” What do you think about Motorola’s ad?
