I use it. I love to see some of the great cities of the world, especially in Japan, before I visit. Also, students love looking at these fly over views. They get a true sense of scale.
Look, each to their own. But I think it's a great tool.

Flyover is far more useful to me than streetview. Being able to fly around a city using gestures and multi touch and zoom into areas I'm looking for is much easier than navigating through a city using a bunch of photos.

I'm a photographer and often have to shoot in different parts of the city that I live in and in cities that I don't know well. Flyover has been invaluable. Just this week, I met with a wedding couple who I'm shooting and we sat down and planned their wedding itinerary and found shoot locations using Flyover. They asked me what app I was using and were surprised when I said Apple Maps.

The main topic is not what looks dumb here. The main topic is the Maps App. But, thanks for such an insightful opinion anyways.

Google Maps is much more interesting so far.
Flyover is clearly the missing link between satellite imagery and the street view level that Apple is yet to launch.

When all the system will be in place, the experience will be like magic, resembling a drone view, unlike the poor user experience of today's Google street view (in other ways, a very useful service).

It's almost unbelievable folks continue to bitch about flyover, completely missing the big picture.
