We can all rest easy now that Google Maps have landed in the Apple app store to much fanfare. While the hate directed towards Apple’s bundled iOS maps was blown out of proportion, Google’s new shiny maps app which features turn-by-turn voice directions, a slick smooth interface and vector maps shows that Apple really did drop the ball when it came to their own map application.
The release of Google Maps for iOS came out of nowhere. Google have been rather ambiguous about their plans to release Google Maps for iOS to the point where people questioned whether or not Google would even release a standalone app for iOS.
At the moment when you search the app store for, “Google Maps” it won’t come up until their search indexes are refreshed so until then open this link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-maps/id585027354?mt=8 on your iPhone to get Google Maps.
