It’s Here. Google Maps for iOS.
Finally, the day has come. Google Maps App for iOS is now finally available on the App Store and it is way too good. With iOS 6, Apple removed Google Maps from iPhone and introduced their very own Apple Maps that was flawed in every way. Tim Cook, Apple CEO also officially apologized for screwing up badly and Scott Forstall and many leading executives behind the initiative were asked to leave the company. In all of this, Google was clearly the winner. They allowed people to get completely pissed off with Apple Maps so the excitement level increased for a native Google Maps App for iOS.
The day is finally here, Google is ready with its offering that takes on the world of Maps – Google Maps for iOS. The user experience is brand new –
You’re not going to see any menu here, the map is the UI. The map is completely vector based, very fast, and we have the search box on top. Those are the two things Google is familiar with, speed and search. Panning around is super fast, labels appear quickly. You Zoom in, you can pan down with gestures for 3D.
The App can (actually, must) be downloaded from the App Store for free. Get it now!
