Google Maps for iOS reportedly launching tonight

Posted by: Brett

According to AllThingsD, Google Maps for iOS will reportedly be launching on the App Store tonight. Ever since Apple dropped Google as it’s Maps app provider for iOS with iOS 6, there’s been much speculation as to when, if at all, Google would release a maps application of their own and also whether Apple would approve it or not. Screenshots leaked a few months ago of what was said to be an early version of the application and many were skeptical as to whether Apple would approve it.

Apple recently ousted Scott Forstall, SVP of iOS Software, and Rich Williamson, head of the iOS 6 Maps application, amidst backlash against said application.

This is a developing story…
