Apple is struggling with its maps since last year. The Apple maps are not praised by users. In order to gain expertise in maps apple just had bought two expertise map start-ups, HopStop and Locationary. HopStop is an application used to get directions, traffic delays and navigation from one place to another where as other application Locationary, is specialized in mapping data according to website. Apple introduced apple maps last year. After being promoted apple maps on large scale the company didnt got good response for the same. The software was full of bugs and usually navigated users to wrong directions.
HopStop was launched in 2005 and it is much like Waze ,the Isareli startup bought by the Google last month.
