Last year, Apple bought a string of companies in an effort to better its rather unpopular Maps app, and it looks like Cupertino isn't quite done yet. According to TechCrunch, the company has also snapped up social maps app Spotsetter in a deal that's a lot less low-key that its Beats acquisition. Apple reportedly bought the company not only for its technology, but also for its two founders: former Google Maps engineer Stephen Tse and ex-Siemens consultant and FitFiend CTO Johnny Lee. Spotsetter, if you've never heard of it before, shows your friends' recommendations and trusted reviews of various establishments overlayed on a map. Also, you can use it to search for particular locations and see if your friends have been there, or to read reviews about them.
