Apple users who have been upset over the Apple Maps debacle can now rejoice in happiness, because the Google Maps app has finally returned to the iOS App Store. The new Google Maps app is free to download, and comes packed full of new features with the turn-by-turn directions functionality being the biggest addition. I’ve yet to test this new app out mainly because I haven’t had many issues with the problematic Apple Maps app, but I know there’s a large population of Apple fanboys out there who would sell their firstborn to get their Google Maps back, so I felt the need to post this news.
You can check out the new look and feel of the Google Maps app’s voice guided turn-by-turn functionality after the break. You’ve been liking the map options you have on your iDevice…
[UPDATE] Added a comparison video of Google Maps and Apple Maps after the image below.
