    So, I haven't been following this maps problem closely. But, I have some questions. Nokia sells phones and has some premier mapping service. They pull something from the Apple playbook and remove the baked-in Bing Maps app from the phones and put in their own mapping application. But, their own map app is dysfunctional in some type of fundamental way. And, there wasn't an easy way to restore the missing baked-in Bing Maps? But now there is.

    JFC. Google and Apple are stomping on everyone else's nut sack and this was the best Redmond and Keilaniemi could come up with? *slow clap*

    Why do you need this? Because Nokia wants you to launch Nokia Maps each time which sometimes isn’t as efficient when you just quickly need to open up a map to see where you are or quickly see traffic.


    This is worse than Tim Cook's apology letter.
