Google Maps on iPhone Move in Right Direction

Google made a lot of iPhone users happy with the release of its Google Maps app, which is now available in the App Store, free of charge. While Apple takes steps to correct its trouble-laden but handy Maps app, Google has made the features its users have come to expect available on the iPhone. A cheer could practically be heard across the Internet as the app rocketed to the #1 spot on iTunes’ free apps chart.

The Google Maps for iPhone app offers turn-by-turn directions with voice guidance, and its famous Street View feature, with 360-degree views. If a user is not in a car, the upgraded app has them covered, because directions are available for users who take the train, subway, bus, and even those who walk, a feature which can come in handy in a number of situations, including major-city traveling.

Users can also enjoy live traffic information, 3-D technology and listings for close to 80 million businesses. Another feature which is sure to please users is high-resolution satellite images of destinations around the globe.

Users who sign in with their Google Account can sync search results, directions and favorite places to their various devices simply by signing into Google Maps for iPhone. This means that it has become easier to easily access important information via one’s iPhone, at work, and at home.

The immediate reaction to the release of the iPhone app was largely in its favor, with reviews from critics and users alike overwhelmingly showing support for the long-awaited app.

Go ahead and navigate to the App Store and see what direction Google Maps for iPhone takes you in.
