Google Maps application now available for iOS

Google Maps app for iOS brings voice-guided, turn-by-turn based navigation along with Street View and Transit details.

Apple gave a sour taste to Google by completely removing the native Maps app from the iOS 6. Google took up the challenge and now has released a separate Google Maps app for the Apple iOS devices. The Google Maps brings turn by turn based navigation, transit and even Street View features in it. The Google Maps app for iOS is already live in the Apple App Store and is available for the recent models of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad devices.

The Maps come with smooth 2D and 3D vies with nice vector-based graphics. The search box at the top allows searching a location quickly through the Google local search. When you sign-in, the app syncs all your saved searches, places, and routes on the Maps app.

The Google Maps for iOS also brings turn-by-turn based navigation with voice guidance and also transit information for the local public transport. The app also integrates Google Street View to let the users enjoy 360-degree tour of popular cities of the world.

The first version of the Google Maps App will work for iOS 5.1 or higher running iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th and 5th generation) and iPad.
