US: After a checkered early history, Apple Maps is now used more frequently than Google Maps on Apple's mobile devices. The company has recently revealed that Apple Maps is now used three times as often as its "next leading competitor," namely Google Maps, on Apple iPhones and iPads, according to Associated Press. Apple's navigation app tallies more than 5 billion map-related requests each week, the AP said. That's a major step for an app that was initially and widely criticized for its gaffes and inaccuracies following its debut in fall 2012.
