Google Maps is Back on iOS

Posted on the 14 December 2012 by Tftb @TFTB

After being removed from the iOS 6, Google Maps has finally returned on iOS. As expected, Google Maps has all the features it had before but this time with a much richer and vector based UI. This means less loading times, and lesser bandwidth.

Google Maps App include turn-by-turn navigation, public transit directions, integrated Street View in the new location cards and a Google Earth view which takes you to their Google Earth App on that precise location.

Now that Google Maps is here, which made it Top Free Apps list within 7 hours, we aren’t sure how long the Nokia Here glory would last. For a common user, they have 3 different Maps app to use. The regular default Apple Maps ( which is still improving and might take few months to provide the exact map data ), the Nokia here app ( which created a buzz when released but seems like everyone forget ) and now Google Maps App ( which is known for its location based data it gathered, and kept updating for years)

Either way, its a win-win situation for end user. We get to use whichever app we want or whichever app we are comfortable with.
