Nokia launched its HERE Maps app a few days ago on the App Store. While it’s feature packed, many of them aren’t exactly functioning, at least not in Jakarta. Traffic reports for example, is still better on Waze (doesn’t actually show up on HERE), and public transport only covers trains, no buses. While the map is great, roads are all there, and you can save a map to use offline, you’ll be excused thinking that you’re still living in the past.
Thing is, the points of interests listed on HERE reflects a time long gone. Old clubs, buildings, and businesses, long shut down still show up as recommendations. Are they even using the same data points as Nokia maps on Windows Phone? Or perhaps it’s a way for Nokia to get people to switch to Windows Phone so people use the proper Nokia Maps app with the correct data? Or maybe Nokia is still living in the past?
