Google Maps for iPhone is back

Google Maps for iPhone is back – and it is just awesome. After long absence – it was removed along with the introduction of the iOS6 and replaced with widely hated Apple Maps – it is back, for now only for iPhone. iPad version is not yet available.

New, improved interface, live traffic, directions, Street View – it all there and it works like charm. Yes, it’s good to have it back. Even a turn-by-turn navigation works brilliantly, even when in background, it displays messages along with voice guidance by the notifications bar at the top of the screen. Clever!

Update:

Of course, as expected, Google Maps got a very warm welcome from iOS users all over the world. At the moment, is it the most downloaded application in App Store, got to the top of the Top Free iPhone App category in just few hours with over 1500 mostly five star positive comments. Way to go, Apple!
