Is Apple & Google Finally Playing Nice? Google Maps App Could Be Coming Back To iPhones Soon!
The Google gods & Cupertino chiefs have heard your cries and THEY HAVE SPOKEN. With millions of iPhone users crying foul over the Apple maps debacle, it's being reported that Google is prepping Google Maps for the iPhone, offering a fix for customers dissatisfied with Apple’s poorly received Maps app, according to a report.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Google is distributing a test version of its mapping app to people outside the company. Google is “putting finishing touches” on the app before it hits the App Store. However, it’s unclear exactly when that will happen. If and when that comes to pass, consumers will have an alternative to Apple’s Maps app, which comes preinstalled with iPhones. Apple declined to comment on the matter. A Google rep told The WSJ: “We believe Google Maps are the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps in the world. Our goal is to make Google Maps available to everyone who wants to use it, regardless of device, browser, or operating system.”Hopefully Apple makes this right for it's consumers, if not, I'm sure to become a new Android consumer sooner than later.
