Google Maps for iOS

Now that Google has released a Maps app for iOS we can officially put an end to the great maps debacle of 2012. You now have your pick of the liter from Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia and probably like 30 others I’m not even aware of.

The general reviews of the app seem to be really positive, including the NYT’s David Pogue and The Verge’s Dieter Bohn.

Whenever there is choice and competition, the users win out. Just like Apple’s success has made other device companies step up their design game, Google’s presence on iOS should make Apple raise its data game.

(PS, this means everyone can update to iOS 6 now, as well.)
