You can send directions from Apple Maps to your phone. Yay?
So Apple Maps now charts directions using public transportation in “select” cities, and then sends that information to your phone.
Let’s just pause here for a second.
So one, Apple can’t be bothered to dig out public transportation directions for more than a handful of cities. Listen, you elitists, schlepping it from bus to train to skateboard is the only way your customers can afford your $4,000 Intel PC. And now you want them to have to move somewhere your maps actually cover?
And two, can we be sure now that Apple will actually provide accurate directions, or will they route you from Penn Station to Coney Island by way of Atlantis?
Meanwhile, in Windows land, we just ask Cortana for directions on our phone. I know, I know—boring.
