Much Awaited Google Maps kicks back to iOS
Google Maps app is out and yes it is free. Google Map was kicked out of iOS and apple replaced it with its own crappy Apple Maps. But the good thing out of this is that Google Map has come back with much better features and improvement then before. This new Google Maps app gives you Turn By Turn Navigation which is and should be the core facility given by any GPS mapping Software alongside public transit directions and Street View on the go. You can download the Google Maps App directly from iTunes or App store for free.
Along with Google Maps for iOS, Google is releasing a Google Maps SDK for iOS and a URL scheme to get third party applications to launch the Google Maps app and perform searches, direction requests and display map views. The new Google Maps’ maps are vector-based like Apple Maps so it should be snappier and speedier than the old app. So Yes it can be called APP of the Month, enjoy & never get lost.
