How Ridiculous Is It That Apple Maps Redirect To Google Maps On The Web?

http://techcrunch.com – Yes, Apple Maps redirect to Google Maps on desktop, Android and any non-iOS 6 phones when you share your location. Womp. Obviously this is happening because there’s no hub for Apple Maps on the web, but still, the absurdity of this loop is exemplary of how ill-thought out this whole Maps switch was. Like you most likely, I’m still sort of confused by the logic here: I have iOS 6, and when I try to share my location from Apple Maps to Facebook and Twitter, Apple Maps shares a maps.apple.com URL wrapper. If you click that Facebook or Twitter link from the web, it will load Google Map (IT news)
