Since the public release of iOS 6 back in September, many users have reported trouble with Apple's native Maps application. The Cupertino-based company, in an online statement by CEO Tim Cook, acknowledged the flaws with its Maps application and even recommended that users seek out a temporary alternative until issues were resolved. Excited Pixel's Quick Route ($4.99) is one of the many superior utilities for iOS that aims to replace the need for Apple's Maps.
The numbers are in from Wednesday's Indie+Relief charity effort to raise money for the Haiti rescue organizations. Developers of Mac and iPhone applications offered to donate 100% of the revenue they get from the sales to their respective charities that are assisting the humanitarian efforts in Haiti. Thanks to all of you who bought participating apps on Wednesday, Indie+Relief was able to raise $143,000 in just the 24 hours it was running for.
By now you probably know about the devastation in Haiti caused by the recent earthquake, and their people's desperate need for supplies. Celebrities and politicians are doing what they can to encourage citizens to help. Now software developers are jumping on the bandwagon, offering to donate the proceeds of various iPhone and Mac apps sold on Wednesday, January 20th (tomorrow) to aid in the Haiti relief efforts. The project started as a collaboration between developers Garret Murray and Second Gear. Since then, several other developers have signed on, and the list now includes more than 130 different apps for iPhone and Mac.
