Google Preparing iOS Maps App

As you are all aware, Apple shot themselves in the foot by releasing an unfinished maps app. Since then, many people have been looking to Google to provide a decent maps application. It was rumoured around the time of iOS6 release that Google was not going to release an iOS application to push people over to their Android platform. Current developments show that Google has started releasing test versions of their maps app to selected iOS users to preview. The app is rumoured to also launch with turn by turn directions, something Google have been doing for a while now. The next issue is the fact that Apple may not allow the app to go onto it's app store. In my opinion Apple don't really have a choice and I would imagine that they will allow this for the time being.

Also, if you were not aware, Nokia have announced that their mapping app 'Here' will also be coming to the iOS platform within a few weeks.

So, lots of cool stuff for mapping fans on iOS. Let us know what you think in the comments below!
