Google Maps for the iPhone now available

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 Maps

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.

    I was able to download it at the Hong Kong app store. You just need to change country/region. No need to change any other info. Hope this helps! :)
