Google has released their Google Maps application for the iPhone. After Apple’s most recent public debacle with their own Maps application, they really had no choice but to allow Google to pass their Maps App through the Apple verification process.
The new Google Maps is a free download from the Apple App Store. For more information, check out the Google Maps Apple App Store page at:
Over the past 24 hours, the Google Maps app has become the number one download on the App store, displaying quite appropriately what is user disdain with the current Apple offering. Where Apple will somehow give up on their own App or not remains to be seen. However, while many have already given up their Apple apps, the Google Maps app seems to be prone to similar issues with occasional drop outs of the app, the app not able to read foreign street names and a serious re-routing issue.
