Google Maps for iOS updated, brings iPad support and more
An updated version of Google Maps is now available for download from iTunes, and it also brings support for iPads.
The latest Google Maps will bring a custom iPad interface for the first time. With the latest mapping app you can get where you need to go quickly with the voice guided turn-by-turn GPS navigation, or try public transit, biking and walking directions.
Google Maps can also find the perfect spot for any occasion with local reviews from trusted friends and experts. If you are on your holidays, you can tour cities with the 360-degree Street View and see inside restaurants, museums and more.
The mapping app brings comprehensive and accurate maps in 200 countries and useful information on over 100 million places worldwide. However, some features of the app are not available in all countries.
"Explore new places, discover local favorites, and navigate your world with Google Maps, the mapping service trusted by more than a billion users. Now available on iPhone and iPad with a simple, easy-to-use design," says the product description of Google Maps on iTunes.
The latest version of Google Maps brings new design for iPads. The new Explore function in the apps enables you to browse and discover popular local places to eat, drink, shop, play and sleep.
The app also supports various languages such as English, Catalan, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian and many more.
The latest version of Google Maps is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (third generation), iPod touch (fourth generation), iPod touch (fifth generation) and iPad, and requires iOS 6.0 or later. The latest version updated on July 16 weighs only 11.6MB and is free to download from iTunes.
Apple launched its own mapping app in the iOS 6, which proved unsuccessful and failed to grab customer's attention. The company also released an official apology and asked customers to download alternative mapping apps. However, rumors indicate that Apple has been working hard to fix the problems in its mapping app.
With iOS 7 expected to release with the next iPhone or iPads, we will have to wait and see if Apple brings along a fully functional mapping app of its own.
