When Scott Forstall unveiled the flyover feature in Maps, developers in the audience cheered, and no wonder. Fly over a city and you see all the buildings rendered in stunning 3D. You can change the angle or move around and your iOS device immediately renders a new view on the fly.
Not, however, if you are in Singapore. Unfortunately, the current implementation of Maps in OS 6 doesn't have the 3D view of Singapore. This, instead, is what you see (thanks to Vishnu Prem aka @burnflare).

And here's San Francisco:

Hopefully, Singapore will get the 3D view soon. Though given Singapore's famously paranoid security mindset, it might be a while before Apple is given the permission to fly a plane over Singapore taking pictures.
