"We think this offers the best mobile viewing experience ever."
Can see it looks great. Easy to scan. Articles can come from anywhere but the best ones come from Apple's new design system
I have too many news apps.
"Personalized feed for you"
Starts with topics you like
"I am really excited to be the first person to show you our new News app. First thing do is get a sense of what you like."
(I would have preferred a brand-new type of feature, rather than an app that does what lots of apps do)
"News is also interactive." Susan Prescott is taking the stage to talk about this
Huh. A News app. There are already...a lot of those.
This looks a lot like Flipboard
"News is beaituful content for the world's greatest sources personlized for you."
"Today I'm pleased to announce we're announcing a new application called News."
Apple has come a long way with Maps, but reviewers still say Google Maps is better.
The fiasco caused Cook to issue a public apology and to fire iOS chief Scott Forstall, one of former CEO Steve Jobs' top lieutenants. Cook at the time said Apple "fell short on this commitment," and he recommended alternative mapping programs until the company could fix the issues with Apple Maps.
iOS users immediately noticed problems with everything from navigation to simply searching for an address. Complaints included a lack of details, distorted images and erroneous directions. Grand Cayman was a sandy island devoid of roads. New York City's Manhattan Bridge resembled a roller coaster, and things elsewhere were just plain out of whack.
Apple in September 2012 released its own homegrown mapping program along with its iOS 6 operating system. It previously had preloaded Google Maps on its devices, but tensions between the companies led Apple to create its own software. The trouble was -- it didn't really work.
"Maps is great on iphone and ipad, and of cousre, the Mac as well"
"When you find a location you're interested in, the card will tell you right away at the bottom if it supports apple pay."
Chinese transit maps, too. I'm more interested in global transit help than local.
"We've taught siri all about transit so effortless to get directions. Rolling out first with San Fran, Chicago, etc. Then in China such as Beijing, etc
"Surveyed so we could give you walking directions from where you are. . difference between catching your train on time and being stuck."
"Taken special care to get the details right, the ones that matter with transit. If take a subway station, like Columbus Circle. enormous underground structure spanning many city blocks."
Maps: a new public transit map built-in. I can finally see when New Jersey Transit will supposedly depart if Amtrak lets it.
"We provide step by step directions."
"With Transit, we provide a map that emphsizes the different transit lines. when tap on a station can see all the lines that go through it."
"Maps historically focused on drivers. ... but a lot of users focsued on public transit .Created a great app just for them. Called Transit"
"Next let's turn to Maps. Continued to invest heavily in Maps. seeing 5B user requests per week. usage 3.5X higher than for net leading mapping apps."
"That's a quick update to Notes."
