Hello Germany! While Apple recently improved Apple Maps in Germany, a new update now allows users to personalize their experiences a little more. Now Apple Maps’ own rating system is available for users in Germany. Additionally, the tech giant has improved the display of the app and released more detailed street views.
Apple’s rating system is now integrated with Maps to show details of restaurants, museums, and more. With this update, users can give a positive or negative rating and upload their own photos of their experience in certain places. This helps give potential visitors to these places a better idea of the value of their time.
The Apple Maps rating system has been available in the US and Canada since last year. There is still the previous external rating system in the app which users can use as well. Additionally, Apple Maps integrates with trip planning and review apps such as Tripadvisor, Yelp, and Foursquare.
Anyone who chooses to contribute to the new Ratings Database agrees to Apple’s Ratings and Photos Terms of Service. At the end of these detailed guidelines is a list of keywords of those points that Apple does not want to see in this context. In addition to content-related exclusion criteria, this also includes technical specifications, for example, photos submitted must be good and large enough and can only be in JPEG, PNG or HEIC format.
Any German users looking forward to checking this out? Is the rating system used by any of you? Let us know your thoughts.
