Waze vs. Google Maps vs. Apple Maps

Thrillist enumerates their reasons ‘Why You Should Ditch Google Maps for Apple Maps‘.

The points mentioned in the article may perhaps be valid if you’re living in U.S. But here in the Philippines, your best bet would be Waze. Why?

  • It offers important data like traffic, accidents, the police, etc. and those are actually crowd-sourced. Google Maps and Apple Maps have no traffic data in the Philippines;
  • Public transportation data is basically non-existent for Google Maps and Apple Maps in the Philippines;
  • Don’t get me started with 3D and/or satellite view of Google Maps and Apple Maps, when they still show our 30-storey office building as plain earth.

Nevertheless, I wish you could use Siri to search for locations via the Waze app.
