For those who are itching to get a reliable Maps application for their iPhone, the long wait is now over as the official Google Maps app is already available for download on the App Store.
Google took a while to get their Maps app out but it’s certainly worth the wait. The app itself is rebuilt from the ground up for the iPhone and not just some web-based version. Below are the main features:
* Find addresses, places and businesses around the world with Google local search.
* Discover places to eat, drink, shop and play, with ratings and local reviews.
* Sign in to sync your searches, directions, and favorite places between your computer and your phone.
* Get voice guided, turn-by-turn driving directions.
* Find your way by train, bus, subway or walking directions.
* Access live traffic information in cities across the world.
Street View and imagery
* View 360-degree panoramas of places around the globe with Street View.
* See inside more than 100,000 businesses worldwide.
* View high resolution satellite imagery of locations around the world.
Simple and easy to use
* An entirely new Google Maps experience on your iPhone.
* Newly designed and streamlined interface for even easier navigation of your world.
* Use gestures to explore the map and browse results.
Currently, the Google Maps app is only available for the iPhone. Hopefully, the iPad version will arrive soon.
