Google Maps Already App Store’s Most Popular App

The Register’s Iain Thomson reports that less than a day after its release, Google’s Maps app became the most popular download in the iTunes store.

On Thursday, Google got its iOS mapping app cleared for posting on the App Store, three months after being unceremoniously dumped by Cupertino in iOS 6.

Thompson notes that the new Google application is markedly better than its last iOS Maps application, but still not as wide-ranging as the one available to Android users.

Turn-by-turn navigation is included, along with traffic data, public transit times, and Street View images, which makes it considerably more complete than Apple’s offering.
