In line with a report from just a few hours ago, Google's new standalone Maps app for iOS [App Store] has just gone live in the App Store. The app offers iOS 6 users unhappy with the experience on Apple's new in-house Maps app the ability to switch back to Google's free offering. The new Google Maps also offers a number of enhancements beyond what was offered when it powered the built-in Maps
Google to Release iOS Maps App Tonight
AllThingsD reports that Google's highly anticipated iOS Maps app is set to be released later tonight. When Apple stopped using Google Maps in September with iOS 6, rumors immediately began that the search engine giant would release its own Maps app into the App Store. Since then, unhappy iOS users have been waiting patiently for the app, which didn't seem like it was going to materialize, until tonight. Google Maps for iOS will likely be a huge hit with iPhone users that have been plagued with problems using Apple's built-in mapping solution. Apple has received significant criticism over i

As Google Maps Humiliates Apple, The Silver Lining Is Millions Will Finally Upgrade To iOS 6
Apple is getting embarrassed right now as Google’s new iOS Maps app shoots to the top of the charts. But there is one upside to the beatdown. After three months of holding out to avoid Apple Maps, many people are now upgrading to iOS 6 or an iPhone 5. Last night I watched several people learn of the existence of Google Maps for iOS, and the first thing they did was update their phones’ firmware. S
Apple's App Store Is Getting Punked By A Mysterious Maker Of Crude Games, And We Don't Know How They're Doing It
There's something weird going on in Apple's App Store. Last week, I called attention to Dental Surgery, an unbelievably bizarre iPad app, which had somehow risen to become one of the most popular free apps in the store. Within hours, it was gone. This week, a new app called Nose Surgery found its way in the top ten, apparently from the same developer using a different name. What's the deal?  T

Design like Apple, but name like P&G
Apple's naming approach is inconsistent, it begs for lawsuits (offensive and defensive) and it shouldn't be the model for your organization. iPhone is a phone, iPad is a pad, iPod is a ...
