Google Maps Gets 10 Million Downloads On App Store Within 48 Hours


When Apple first introduced iOS 6 and the iPhone 5, one of new features was Apple’s own Maps app which replaced Google Maps.  Unfortunately for Apple, the new app wasn’t well received. Users complained about things from missing roads to 3D glitches that seemed to be popping up all over the place. Thankfully, the few (seemingly long) months of being stuck with just iOS Maps is now officially over.

Google released its iOS 6 optimized Maps app a few days ago (for free) in the Apple App Store. And within just the first 48 hours of being released, the app has received over 10 million downloads and is now one of the top free apps available on iOS. The new app, unlike the old iOS version, now features turn-by-turn navigation and seems to have gotten a more polished UI compared to its Android equivalent. Download it now and tell us what you think!
