How to get the Google Maps app back

September 24, 2012
Yes it's becoming possible. Just after Apple failed to deliver a good mapping experience in iOS 6, many users have asked for the Google Maps app back. Although Google said that they are about to deliver their own iOS maps app that should be available before Christmas; this was not enough. People want the Google Maps app back and they want it now. So the good news is you can get it now!

Launch Safari and load up maps.google.com. You can even add a shortcut to your home screen. The app functions very similarly to the actual previous Google Maps app so you may as well give it a try. Below is a video explaining how to get it. Followed by details of a hacker porting the previous maps app into iOS 6.


But it didn't stop here. Hacker Ryan Petrich was able to successfully port the maps app into iOS 6. However the app is still buggy and so is not yet made available to the public. Another problem is that he can not distribute the app because it will require a jailbroken iPhone which isn't publicly available for all devices either. Below is a video made by Ryan demonstrating how the app functions.




What is your experience with Apple's maps app?
