It’s an interesting evening for Maps on iOS. First up, Google released a rudimentary iOS Google Maps video that feels circa 2007 and includes all the gestures that made Steve Jobs go thermonuclear on Android. We’re not sure who the intended audience is, but this was just released. Maybe it is for the people who’ve never used a smartphone before?

Rounding things out, Jim Darlymple from the Loop posts what appears to be a roundup of new Apple data on improvements in mapping (supporting the stance that it’s rapidly improving):
