Apple's Maps Application Gets an Official Rebuke on Twitter

BY Miranda Neubauer | Thursday, September 20 2012

There's been plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth at the poor accuracy of maps in Apple's new Maps application, released to iPhone users as part of iOS 6.

Earlier today, the Washington State Department of Transportation joined in.

"Although #ios6 may say differently," Washington's Department of Transportation tweeted, "we can assure you that the Tacoma Narrows Bridges have not melted."

The image had been posted on the The Amazing iOS 6 Maps Tumblr, which hosts a litany of underwhelmingly accurate maps.
