Google has finally released the long awaited Maps application for iOS.

Google Maps is now available for iPhone [googleblog.blogspot.jp]

People around the world have been asking for Google Maps on iPhone. Starting today, we're pleased to announce that Google Maps is hereórolling out across the world in the Apple App Store [itunes.apple.com]. It's designed from the ground up to combine the comprehensiveness and accuracy of Google Maps with an interface that makes finding what you're looking for faster and easier.

Thanks, Bill. Your link let me download it whereas I was unable to even find it via searching the iTunes Store.

Apple Maps has been particular glitchy here in Miami so this is a very welcome addition.

ADDED: One thing I've noticed so far is I can't select Contacts as destinations for directions like I could with Apple Maps.

I noticed this too. Fortunately, my home-based business is on Google Maps, so I can use that for directions to/from home.
