Have you downloaded the free Google Maps app on your iPhone yet? You really should. Apple has nailed a lot of things in the past decade . . . but trying to make their own maps app is one of their biggest screw-ups yet.
A company called Crowdflower just ran a study comparing Apple Maps and Google Maps to see which one is more likely to get you lost.
They entered 1,000 random businesses in the U.S. and 100 overseas to see which mapping app would do a better job giving you accurate directions. And they found Apple Maps are 300% more likely to get you lost than Google Maps.
Apple Maps got the location wrong 3.4% of the time . . . Google Maps were wrong 1.1%.
