Today, Google released their Google Maps app for iOS (iTunes link). As you may have heard, Google was the standard map service for years until Apple unceremoniously removed it completely to replace with their own. There are many #fail sites highlighting Apple Maps problems, this Tumblr is my personal favorite: http://theamazingios6maps.tumblr.com/
* Find addresses, places and businesses around the world with Google local search.
* Get voice guided, turn-by-turn driving directions.
* Sign in to sync your searches, directions, and favorite places between your computer and your phone.
* View 360-degree panoramas of places around the globe with Street View.
The Verdict: After briefly testing the app out this morning, it is clear that Google is still the king of Maps. The interface was intuitive, the turn-by-turn directions flawless, and the vast search index of places vital. The only thing missing is the native lock-screen support.
