Google Maps return to iPhone with new mobile app

Dec 13, 1:49 AM (ET)

By MICHAEL LIEDTKE

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Google Maps have found their way back to the iPhone.

The world's most popular online mapping system returned late Wednesday with the release of the Google Maps' iPhone app. The release comes nearly three months after Apple Inc. (AAPL) replaced Google Maps as the device's built-in navigation system and inserted its own maps into the latest version of its mobile operating system.

Apple's maps proved to be far inferior to Google's. The product's shoddiness prompted Apple CEO Tim Cook to issue a rare public apology and recommend that iPhone owners consider using Google maps through a mobile Web browser or seek other alternatives until his company could fix the problems. Cook also replaced the executive in charge of Apple's mobile operating system after the company's maps became a subject of widespread ridicule.

-end-

Great to finally have a worthwhile mapping application back on this POS iPhone.

Why can't they just send an IOS update?

It is Apple's fault, not the user's, Although I still mnow people who did not take the latest update to avoid the abysmal apple maps...

Now google are working in partnership with NASA, so they shouldn't have tried to own the maps market as well, be ause some things are better left to the experts, right MR APPLE, mmmm?

Theres an old old saying that goes if it works, dont't try to fix it dumbass - the 'dumbass' is my modernized version.....
