Got an iPhone on iOS6? You can finally dump that awful, terrible, unbelievably bad abortion called Apple Maps.
After an agonising wait, Google Maps for iOS6 has been released, and you should get it now.
Why? Many reasons. For one, it’s free (always a good reason). Two, you don’t actually like Apple Maps, do you? Three, Google’s mapping data is (ahem) Streets Ahead.
And the most important reason is that it will finally shut up all your Android loving friends and their lame Apple Map jokes.
With Google maps you’ll also get Streetview and a free turn-by-turn navigator that’s getting better and better rivalling the cheaper dedicated car-nav options.
Another benefit from using Google Map is that it remembers what you’ve searched for across all your devices (if you’re logged in). So search for a street on the PC or Mac, then hop in the car, and Google Maps knows all about it.
