Never one to shy away from his opinions, Apple (AAPL) co-founder Steve Wozniak revealed that he is “a little disappointed” with Apple’s new Maps program in iOS 6. “I tried to navigate somewhere, and I couldn’t get to where I wanted to by voice,” he said to ZDNet. “So, I was a little disappointed, because I love navigation by voice with my Google [Android] phones, actually, since they always get it and are based on a better database.” Apple has been heavily criticized for its decision to drop Google’s mapping app in favor of its own inferior program. Wozniak thinks the criticism may be overblown, however. “I have been reading about the problems, and I don’t know if they are that severe,” he said, using the iPhone 4 antenna issue as an example. “Sometimes, there are a lot of complaints about one little thing people spot, but it’s not that hard to deal with in life. I don’t know yet about Maps — I’m a little worried about the navigation, but I’ve still got it covered with a bunch of other navigation apps.”
