    A new featured link on the iOS App Store invites users to "Find maps for your iPhone," and lists a number of paid and free alternatives to Apple's own Maps application in iOS 6.

    The new link appeared on the App Store on Friday, after Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook himself highlighted competing options in an apology to customers. Since the launch of iOS 6 with Apple's all-new mapping solution, users have complained that the software is substandard.

    "While we're improving Maps, you can try alternatives by downloading map apps from the App Store like Bing, MapQuest, and Waze, or use Google or Nokia maps by going to their websites and creating an icon on your home screen to their web app," Cook wrote.

    In addition to the public apology, the new "Find maps for your iPhone" is the first featured link on the iOS App Store curated by Apple. It offers a list of 13 alternative mapping applications available for download. They are:
    MotionX GPS Drive
    Waze social GPS traffic & gas
    MapQuest
    GPS by Telenav
    Garmin USA
    Gokivo GPS Navigator
    Navigon USA
    CoPilot Live Premium USA ? offline GPS navigation
    CoPilot GPS ??Plan & Explore with on-board maps & directions
    Bing
    Magellan RoadMate North America
    AT&T Navigator: GPS navigation subscription fee appears on AT&T bill
