Google Maps App for iPhone is Here – First Impressions (Video)

Google Maps iOS

Earlier this year, when Apple released the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 they kicked Google Maps out as the default mapping app, and replaced it with their own called “Apple Maps”. (See: What iPhone 5 and iOS 6 Means for Small Businesses and Local Search.)

But Apple Maps wasn’t up to snuff and was widely criticized, to the point that Apple CEO Tim Cook apologized.

Now Google is back with it’s own official app for the iPhone, and it is sweet. It is available now. Here’s a short video tour of the new Google Maps App for iOS.

p.s. While researching for this video I just discovered a new site by a buddy of mine called AppleMapsMarketing.com. Check it out.

Hi Justin,
I’ve heard rumors that Google Maps App is coming to the iPad. Now that it is available on the iPhone I’m hoping we won’t have to wait too long!
