Google Maps is the best free tool for all your mapping and navigation needs. It’s comprehensive, intuitive to use, and available across platforms. Since there is no serious competition in sight, you might as well settle with it for now and use some of the awesome features, like custom maps. Google Maps allows you to edit its maps, save them as your own map, make it public or private, and share the link.
The highly anticipated Google Maps iOS app has now finally arrived in the app store. The app, which is not yet optimised for iPad, features a new vector-based map which cuts down on data usage and provides sharper graphics along with features like turn-by-turn navigation and Google Street View.
Google Maps is still the most powerful mapping service ever, despite what Apple might say. Whether you’re using Google Maps in a browser on your desktop or an app on your mobile phone, Google Maps is packed with useful features, some of which are a bit hidden. Even better, the Google Maps app works in concert with the Google Maps website on your computer.
Within a week of release Google Maps for iOS shot to the top of the App Store charts as iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch owners rushed to get Google’s free mapping solution back on their devices. Despite the rush, the numbers don’t signal clear cut victory for Google, especially with Apple Maps deeply integrated into the OS and challenger Nokia bringing up the rear with HERE. So which is the better solution?
