    iOS Google Maps hit at just the right time with just the right amount of UX and visual design. I've just moved to Pittsburgh for the year, and I depend on some sort of mobile transit app to get around town. When I updated to the newest iOS, I had to use applications that had nowhere near the fidelity of transit data that Google had (and it made me late for classes, meetings, and had me stranded in the cold several times).

    The real joy was that I got turn-by-turn on my iPhone 4. For years I was deprived of this by Apple. It was an incredibly pleasant surprise.
