Good news for all of you who have been waiting for Google Maps to come to iOS 6.
There are a lot of nice features to explore. For example, the vector-based maps load quickly and allow for smooth tilting and rotating of 2D and 3D views.

The search box at the top of the screen lets you search for a place or a business, and the expanding information pane at the bottom of the screen shows relevant information, such as address, opening hours, ratings and reviews, images, directions and other information.
You can also access Street View imagery, so you can see where you’re going before you arrive.
The app is also fast, and very smooth, and gives me the information I need when I’m out and about.
Without a doubt, the Google Maps app blows Apple‘s Maps app out of the water.
The new Google Maps app is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch (4th gen) iOS 5.1 and higher, in more than 40 countries and 29 languages, including Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
Want to grab the app? Here’s the link. It’s free.
