I am using Google Maps in a couple of iOS apps that I have created. Or, at least
I was before Apple threw out Google Maps and put in their own. So, now I guess I
am using Apple Maps instead.
I have always admired Apple for their wonderful design, but when it comes to the
new MKMapView that is powered by Apple Maps, I find the following annoying:
Take a look at the lower-left corner. See the nice little round button? Shouldn’t
it be even prettier pushed down even more into the corner? Yeah, I know…I think
so too. However, that area is occupied by a legal label that Apple for some reason
have decided to include.
I have not been able to find a way to remove this label with the native MKMapView
methods, but I did manage to find a way to programmatically move the label to the
bottom-right corner instead, using a category that I wrote:
I have used this in an app that got approved, so I guess you can all just use it
without being concerned that you do something you’re not allowed to do.
