Its here! Google Maps for iPhone.

Yes thats right, Google have this morning released the much anticipated maps application for iPhone. My initial impressions of it are great! Its a really functional and nice looking app, in fact I'd go as far to say that it is well ahead of the Android version of Google Maps at this stage. As I understand Google will be updating the Android app to have the same look and feel of the iOS one. It's obvious where they have been spending their development time recently and it's certainly paid off. Running on the iPhone 5 it is very smooth, street view works very well and the screen layout is good.
