Google Maps Is Back On iOS

Finally, Google maps is back on iOS. After the release of iPhone 5, Apple fans were dissatisfied with the own map of Apple which is actually amateur application. Yesterday Google released the new app for iOS which is actually a counterpart of Android version.

The new version is much more clean and user-friendly, especially its interface. Daniel Graf, Director of Google Maps for Mobile, told us that Google “We started working on it this year. We took a step back, we had an opportunity to create a new experience from scratch.” The majority of maps features – traffic, turn-by-turn navigation, transit directions, walking directions, satellite view, street view, indoor photos, Zagat restaurant reviews etc.

As it is written on the blog, “To complete the Google Maps ecosystem, we’re also releasing the Google Maps SDK for iOS, and a simple URL scheme to help developers use Google Maps when building their beautiful and innovative apps.”

You can download it from Apple Store.
