iOS 6 Adoption Grows 29% Over The Weekend As People Finally Update After Google Maps Arrives

TechCrunch : Apple Maps was so bad that people refused to upgrade to iOS 6 until they could get Google Maps, says data from massive mobile ad exchange MoPub. The 12,000 apps it supports saw a 29 percent increase in unique iOS 6 users in the five days after Google Maps for iOS was released. Chitika reported just 0.2 percent growth immediately after the launch but it seems people waited for the weekend to do the long install. (Apple, Industry, iOS 6, Phones, Web)
