Google: The New Google Maps is Now Available for Everyone Without an Invite
Google Maps is one of the most popular ways to look at the world on a digital screen. It offers satellite, map, and hybrid views of anywhere you want to see, and you can easily route yourself from point A to point B with Google Maps.
Google has Tuesday announced that the new Google Maps is now available for everyone on the Web and no longer requires an invite to begin using. The new Google Maps is more "interactive" and "tailored towards you" when you're using it on a regular basis. You can see the video on the re-designed Google Maps below:

In a post by Google Tuesday evening, the company thanks all those that test drove the new Google Maps before today's public release:

Update: It appears Google has pulled the Google Maps application from the App Store in countries were the update has not yet gone live in. When the update is live, users will stop getting the "Not Available in the U.S." error.

When I try to dl it (at the top of the linked page it says "for Android," at the bottom it gives an iTunes link as well), I get a popup that says it's not available via iTunes "in the US store." Since I'm in the US, Google is a US company, and so is Apple, this seems a bit bizarre.

If you are having issues bringing it up, try it on a computer.
The new Google Maps are available through your Web browser.
The application is currently withdrawn from the App Store until Google releases the new version of the application, so if it's not showing up in the App Store for you, that is why.
