Google Reportedly Distributed A Test Version of iOS Google Maps App
Many continue to look forward to the release of Google’s stand-alone Google Maps application for iOS, since Apple’s iOS 6 Maps have been causing issues for a number of users. So far, Nokia has announced that their 'Here' maps will be coming to iOS in a few weeks, but Google has yet to give anyone an estimated time of arrival for their Google Maps application.
A report from the Wall Street Journal may finally shed some light on the progress of such an application. According to the report, Google has distributed test versions of the Google Maps application to select iOS users to preview:

The hard part, of course, may be getting Apple to approve the application in the App Store when it’s submitted. Tons of users have been pushing for the application since iOS 6 was released and a great number would be highly disappointed to see an application like this turned down from the App Store.
If you’re looking forward to the Google Maps application joining the arsenal of Google’s App Store apps, hopefully you shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.

I will download it when it comes out. But I really actually like apples maps so it will be a toss up of which one I actually use more unless google gives us street view or something new and amazing

I hate the Apple Maps as it looks really crappy compared to Google Maps.
Checkout the 2 in Satellite view and you will see what I'm talking about.

Why do this now? Why not just license it to Apple when they requested it? I mean, I get it from a competition standpoint, but it just seems a bit slimy.

WTF are you going on about?
How about you TROLLS leave.
This is still a free speech forum and I can say whatever I like.
Even in the article it says Apple maps is hated so its not just me.
There are too many MORONS on this forum and they like to attack people who have a mind of their own NOT clones like themselves.

Hope Apple would allow Google Maps :/ ....

But if you use Apple's Maps, then only they get to hang onto that information, which is becoming quite the precious commodity these days, and Google is left out in the dark.

Eh everybody been reading this for months now. Finally registered. I have had no problems with my apple map think it is just as good as google. We all have our own preferences. First cell phone I ever had was ip4 never had one b4 that so I can't compare to others but I am sure missing my JB. Peace
