Unless you’ve been living under a rock this past week, you’ve probably heard by now that Apple’s new Maps application is a bit of a failure. Since its release, the iOS 6 app has been taking heavy fire from all directions of the blogosphere, and even the real world as well. From the London Underground, to a number of online accounts, and competitors like Motorola, its been a rough week for Apple.
Now, the company is desperately trying to make things right, so much so that it is hoping to hire as many ex-Google Maps developers as possible. According to a source with connections from both teams, Apple is aggressively trying to recruit software engineers that previously worked on the Google Maps application.
