For those recently befuddled by their Apple Maps, iPhone users can breathe a sigh of relief with the news that Google Maps are returning to the popular smartphone. The release comes nearly three months after Apple Inc. 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. Rolling out across the world in the Apple App Store, the new maps are 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. At the heart of this app is Google’s constantly improving map of the world that includes detailed information for more than 80 million businesses and points of interest – with such features as voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation, live traffic conditions and smooth tilting, and rotating 2D and 3D views. Google Maps can be downloaded here.
