Apple will pay users to help improve Maps


Apple has decided to adopt a measure with which the users are part of the development of one of the native Apps that more controversy has generated during later years, Maps .

What is this participation?

Freelands or helpers should type a search query on a location and then present a series of maps with certain results. 
The work to be carried out by these assistants will be to analyze the results provided by the search and answer a kind of questionnaire where they will ask you about the accuracy of street names, specific addresses, locations of certain references and occasional queries More related to the correct geolocation of the places presented.

Maps, you still have a lot to go

Will I charge or will it be a totally altruistic aid?

If you want to participate in this initiative of the apple company and help improve Maps is your opportunity, and overcharging But do not expect an attractive salary that gives you to buy your next iPhone without letting go of the one you currently own. 
For each job / task / help you provide you will earn a revenue of $ 0.54 (the equivalent of a packet of potatoes, small, clear) and you will not be able to perform more than 600 tasks per week , a figure that only a privileged few would reach Because they would have to spend practically 20 hours a day to touch that limit.

How or where do I access to help?

The help will be possible thanks to the availability of a tool that Apple has to his credit. You will only have to register and perform the appropriate tasks that are specified or necessary. 
The program / tool is called TryRating and, thanks to the interface that Apple has developed, it is quite intuitive and simple to use.

Personally, do I think Maps is a good alternative to Google Maps?

Maps of Apple vs Google Maps
Four years ago, and even less, the answer would not have been resounding but I would have preferred the alternative offered by the company of the great G; But, to this day, Maps seems to me a very worthy alternative to all competitive Apps, whether Google Maps or Here. 
In recent years, at least in my circle of action, I have not seen serious mistakes or bad positions by the application of the Cupertino, and this is thanks to the efforts that Apple has dedicated to improve such application.

I'm asking!


If iOS 10 Maps brought a redesign and a new interface, with iOS 11 it should also bring some news, at least in my point of view. 
One of these improvements would be the implementation of a Street View that lives up to its competitors and the other would be integration with public transport (I do not know if in other cities its integration will be correct, but at least where I live, which is Seville, this integration is practically null if not non-existent)
