    Apple acquires transit-navigation company, HopStop

    I think based on the fact that as you will see a highlighted passage i will provide Apple continues to invest in mapping software and companies with the one main focus and that id to make their Native Mapping app the best - especially behind the heels of Google maps 2.0 just upgrading. Take a few mins to read this first.

    [INFO]If, when, and how a HopStop acquisition will help Apple Maps in that regard isn't immediately clear. What is clear, however, is that Apple continues to invest heavily in mapping companies and their technology. To date, that includes HopStop,Locationary, WiFiSLAM, 3C Technologies, Poly9, and Placebase.
    That being said, it'd be nice to see at least basic transit directions return to the built-in Maps app, wouldn't it?[/INFO]

    After this gets your attention go and read the rest of the article and see what you think.

    Good move on Apple's part. I only wish they got a hold of Waze before Google did.

    Apple and Google are gonna buy every company it seems.

    ​Wonder how that will effect HopStop on Android.

    Apple should do with HopStop on Android what Google has done with Maps on iOS...

    Don't think that's going to happen.

    It appears hopstop has halted support for wp8, but is keeping support for android, for the moment.
