Google Maps: Now Available on iOS

It is a relief for frustrated iOS users using Apple Maps, the navigation app by Apple which replaced Google Maps in iOS 6. The problem with Apple Maps is the poor data, due to which people are getting wrong directions and wrong images of places. This led to lot of controversies regarding iOS 6 and iPhone 5.

Google Maps is now available for download from the Apple App Store.

The new Google Maps app now includes new features which were limited before to Android like guided turn-by-turn navigations. 

I think Apple Maps might do better in the future, but at the current stage I will blindly recommend Google Maps to people who don't want to wait and want the best maps app currently available.

Do you like the new Google Maps app? Will you download and use the new Google Maps for iOS or continue to use the Apple Maps app/wait for an update?
