Apple Maps to the desktop
In spite of its rocky start on its mobile devices, Apple has brought its Maps apps to the desktop. It includes all of the features from the mobile app, such as 3D maps, local information, and driving directions.
Apple Maps: 3D view
The breathtaking view of featured cities in three-dimensions stands at the forefront of this Maps release. Dubbed "Flyover," it allows users to zoom in and see real-world landmarks from a number of angles in three-dimensions. Think of it as a "street view" from above.
Apple Maps: Good quality imagery
The 3D imagery is high quality and can be zoomed in to street and building level. Maps is also integrated into a number of built-in applications, such as Contacts and Calendar, enabling an overall richer and better-integrated experience. Third-party apps can also hook into the Maps APIs to take advantage of the new desktop service.
