For the iPhone owners among you: the Apple Maps ordeal is over with the release of Google Maps for iPhone. No longer will you search for a restaurant in your area and be taken to a place that is hundreds of miles away. No longer will you be subject to the limitations of Apple Maps and wish you could see a street view or public transit information. Our first impressions of Google Maps are very positive, and we’ve found a handful of hidden gestures that we show you in the below video.
If you have an iPad, you might be stuck waiting for a bit for a proper Google Maps app, but fear not: it’s more likely than not that Google is working on a maps app for the larger screen, and just wanted to focus on the iPhone app first because there are many more iPhone owners than there are iPad owners. Grab Google Maps on iTunes now.
