I was nervous/excited about installing iOS, my main concern being how the new operating system would interact with our iPhone apps. Upon initial inspection I was very pleased that the apps functioned perfectly and appeared to actually be agnostic when it came to the two OS’s. That was until I tried out a mapping features that enabled users to received turn by turn directions to tens of thousands of potential locations (needless to say these can be hard to find in the middle of the West Texas oil patch).
So everything looked great for the apps functionality, however as soon as I tried to get directions to a well, the app opened up http://maps.google.com and I had to navigate through the web based version of the application, I don’t think I have to explain that this would not an ideal way to find the location.
I should be happy that the lat/longs were integrated into the web version of the app, however being the constant perfectionist that I was not happy at all.
So for right now, we’re having to hold back on updating the devices in the field to iOS 6.0 until we update the app with a re-direct and submit the change to Apple.
