Switch to Google Maps with MapsOpener
Apple Maps was bashed for its many problems and bugs right out of its introduction on the marketplace. The numerous issues back with the launch of iOS 6 have rendered it very difficult to use towards a user’s overall advantage.
Meanwhile Google finally released an iPhone-compatible client for its Google Maps service. Google Maps is a very powerful alternative for the user’s mapping requirements especially with Apple Maps’ bugs in mind. Google Maps provides a lot of improved features, such as: built-in Google local search service, voice guided turn-by-turn navigation, public transit directions, Street View and many others. The main problem was that it couldn’t be set as the default maps app of your choice. Unless you’re jailbroken.
MapsOpener is a new, free jailbreak application that is available via Cydia and allows users to set Google Maps as the default service. This means when the user opens a link to a map online, or from another app, it opens in Google Maps instead of Apple Maps. MapsOpener is available in the Big Boss Repository on Cydia. This is a great way for jailbroken iOS users to use Google Maps more effectively. Until Apple allows to select a custom default app for navigation actions, the jailbreak tweaks like this one are the only option so far.
