Since updating to IOS 6, I have to delete cookies constantly to enter data in web-based system that I use for work. Any suggestions how to fix. It is very time consuming and annoying. Caused loss of data that I thought was entered.
No update is flawless. Most issues are minor and individual experiences. The Youtube and Maps issues are not Apple's fault when you look at it. Google knew that the native apps were going to be dropped. They chose to not release them and it was highly possible that they did so to upset Apple customers and get some convets to Android. The reason why Apple dropped the apps was because Google would not update the Apple versions with features everyone liked, so getting Android was the only way to get them. They offered upgrades to Apple, but the price was personal information about Apple customers. It is regrettable that so many people are having issues with the map program, but I have never heard Google apologize for any of their misdeeds, but Apple is willing to do so.

Eventually I decided on option one and took my dead ipad to the Apple store in Bristol UK. I arranged a time through the Genius bar and although I got there an hour early, they were quite happy to see me straight away. They were polite and friendly. The Apple assistant plugged my ipad into his standalone Macbook and within five minutes the new IOS6 had been downloaded. There were no hiccups and no problems. They could not or would not tell me why I was unable to download at home. They said there could be a million reasons. A million reasons is an awful lot of reasons, but there is plainly something wrong with this download. Luckily I wasnít too far from the apple store but others live much farther away. When Apple sell ipads, they sell to anybody and everybody. They donít say any technical expertise is required to update. They donít say any special conditions should prevail before updating is possible. Updating should be simple and easy and failsafe. This one was none of those things.
Good to hear that option 1 worked, even though it shouldn't have been necessary. I hope you can now enjoy your iPad in the way you should be able to. The other option may have been briefly satisfying, but really not productive in the long term. Thanks for sharing your experience.

I've been doing extended traveling across the U.S. and have been making extensive use of Google maps on iOS 5.1.1.
I had zero probs upgrading to iOS 6 on my iPod touch 4, but see no reason to upgrade my iPad or iPhone 4S. For me, it was an easy choice between using what already worked well for me vs. going to iOS 6, which didn't offer me enough in trade for giving up Google maps.
Just this past week, my Garmin GPS froze while I was crossing a bridge while leaving NYC in heavy traffic. People familiar with NY will know that that's among the worst places for a GPS to fail. Luckily, my iPad on iOS 5.1.1 was readily at hand and I was quickly able to fall back on it. For me, maps are important and will remain a key feature when picking any mobile device, platform or firmware.
When speaking about Android, it's best to remember that the platform is delivered across a ton of devices, across many manufacturers, so having had experience with one device or another doesn't allow anyone to accurately make sweeping generalizations about all Android devices.
As you will see from my signature I have a lot of experience of Android devices, running many different versions of the OS. The main "problem" with Android, if you can call it that, is also it's strength. It is actually the reverse of the Apple strength/weakness mix.
Being open source allows many manufacturers to provide their own implementations of the OS. This is a good thing. It brings competition and inventiveness. however, it also means that the user experience varies across manufacturers. Some provide software updates with more speed than others, some implement the OS with more stability, some with more polish. This means that while an iPad is an iPad is an iPad. The same cannot be said about an android tablet. The Asus tf101 is very different in feel to the Samsung Tab 2.0 for example.
As an owner and user of both devices I can already say that the iPad 3 is the nicest, most polished and enjoyable tablet I have ever used. It is not without its weaknesses, however. One example is the inability to select a soft keyboard with a number row as a fifth row. I have seen requests for this dating back 2 years, but still we are not "allowed" to have it.
Nothing is perfect. Nothing will suite everyone. At the end of the day all devices have their limitations - part of the fun is working around them & making your device "yours".
