Still no word on availability
some good news for iPhone lovers. The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is putting finishing touches on Google Maps for iOS.
The app has not been submitted for iTunes store approval, but it has been distributed to some individuals outside Google. It is still unclear when the app will be submitted for approval, or if and when it will show up in the app store.
The headline feature is said be turn-by-turn navigation, which was conspicuously absent from previous Google Maps releases for the iOS platform.
Hopefully this will be the end of it and Apple will not choose to play politics and compromise user experience by moving away from Google Search and other Google services.
