Google late Wednesday released a maps app for Apple's mobile devices. In a press release, Google said:
People around the world have been asking for Google Maps on iPhone. Starting today, we’re pleased to announce that Google Maps is here—rolling out across the world in the Apple App Store. It’s designed from the ground up to combine the comprehensiveness and accuracy of Google Maps with an interface that makes finding what you’re looking for faster and easier.
Apple replaced Google maps when it updated its mobile operating system in the fall, resulting in a backlash from users.
