Google has launched an iOS Maps SDK, which means third party apps can use google maps again!! (when developers update their apps + you must have google maps pre installed)

THANK GOD! The Apple Maps is AWFUL! I'm a big Apple fan but their maps is an absolute failure, how it made it out to public release in this form I will never know,

I mean it's not optimised for iPad, it just runs the small iPhone version in the middle of the screen. Same thing happened with the YouTube app and they updated it last week.

I am still on iOS 5 and probably will never update but I still downloaded this and it is really slick even better than the previous Google Maps for iOS. The directions it gives seem to be even better than a lot of other Sat Navs I have used. Will continue using it and see how it goes but probably the best freebie ever!

excellent find

Not as good as the google maps that was on iOS before

I find Apple Maps pretty good, but Google maps is better for sure, thanks.

Used it this morning on the way to work. Love how turn-by-turn works fine on this on my iPhone 4, yet the built-in Apple Maps doesn't have this feature. Crazy!

thanks

about bluming time. This apple maps nonsense has been driving me crazy

Google 1 - Apple 0

No more of this then

About Time, Thanks - Hot

IOS6 Maps is dangerous - lol

bbc.co.uk/new…447

excellent

Finally google maps!!!!

Thank you OP! Been delaying the upgrade to ios6 because of this map fiasco, now I have no excuse

Google (yet again) showing Apple how it's done

I've got to disagree with the majority here, Google maps is crap compared to the iOS 6 maps.

My house doesn't even exist on Google maps, it was built 6 years ago !!! iOS maps are far more upto date.

Might actually consider upgrading the iOS on my 4S now!

l like adventure, so I'll stick to Apple maps.

When you install it and go through the set up it does state it's in 'Beta'.

This couldn't the hottest deal this year
