Wanna tell Apple about a mistake in its Maps app!!!

Users can send Apple feedback on any problems found in the Maps app, with specific details on why the information is incorrect.

Spot a mistake in Apple’s Maps app? Instead of just getting mad, you can report the problem to Apple.

The iPhone maker took it on the chin last week after users uncovered a slew of gaffes in the new app. Errors such as missing cities, mislabeled locations, incorrect pins, and duplicate islands prompted people to give the app a collective thumbs down.

Users who search for a specific city or landmark and find an error can at least alert Apple to the glitch. To do so, tap on the right arrow or information icon next to the pinned area to bring up the Location page. At the bottom of the page, tap on the Report a Problem link.

A menu pops up with four choices: Information is incorrect; Pin is at incorrect location; Place does not exist, or My problem isn’t listed. Tap on the choice that best matches the problem and then tap Next. Depending on the option you chose, another screen appears asking you for further details until finally you can send your report to Apple.

But since Apple is under the gun to improve the app, it has to rely on crowd sourcing as one key way to identify the myriad number of errors throughout the world. In response to complaints about the app, Apple itself said that “as Maps is a cloud-based solution, the more people use it, the better it will get.”
