Google Maps for iPhone quickly becomes top app in App Store

news article released on:

Just hours after being released for iOS, Google's new Maps app has become the most downloaded application in the App Store. The free app is available in 40 countries and in 29 languages and Apple fans seem to be running as fast as they can to replace their buggy Apple Maps offering which came pre-loaded on iOS 6 devices like the latest iPad, iPad Mini and iPhone 5.

This is very welcome for me as I am an iOS user. Doesn't seem to make allot of commercial sense for Google by plugging the biggest problem in iOS 6.

Doesn't make a lot of commercial sense? Sounds like another apple fan refusing to see that there is be something better. Maybe Google is thinking; see how our apps just work.
I guess being ubiquitous doesn't make a lot of commercial sense...

What. Really, your comment is out of line. I 100% agree google maps are superior to Apple maps in nearly every way. But, please tell me you are only referring to Google apps when you say Maybe Google is thinking; see how our apps just work. because the argument of app quality between iOS and Android cannot be had at this point in time because the android apps are generally no where near as good as the iOS Ones.

My comments were in favour of Google, but you are quite clearly such a Phandroid that you saw it as a negative response, so sad.

Does it surprise you that a mindless Apple hater would take the opportunity to twist something said into yet another one of their rants?
