    New Google Maps App Coming Soon to iOS



    Google has today announced via its official Google Maps blog that it has just released a new Google Maps app for Android, which will also soon be available on iOS. Google says that the new version of the app “builds on the design we released for iPhone last December and improves on it with a few useful search and navigation features.” The app, which will be the first dedicated Google Maps app for iPad, is designed to make it easier and faster for the user to explore and to get to the places that they want to get to as quickly as possible. Among the new app’s highlights, as listed by Google Maps blog, are Explore, whereby you can discover new places without even having to type in the search box - all you have to do is tap to see cards with suggestions of where to Eat, Drink, and Shop; and Enhanced Navigation, which introduces the ability to tap on reports of traffic problems to see details of the incident, and also a feature that alerts you when you’re driving if a better route becomes available, and even reroutes you to help you get to your final destination quicker.

    It's already available for the iPad as well.

    It was available for iPhone before it was for iPad. You don't have to wait.

    Got Maps on my iPad. It is excellent, however I'm noticing some choppiness and slow loading times. Google putting more resources into their own Android maps???? I think so! Although I don't blame them since it is their OS and I can't complain really since the overall quality of Google apps for iOS is excellent.

    Anyone know if street view is included or not? I thought it was supposed to be but I haven't found it so far.

    Scifan57, it's good to see that street view is there. But for some strange reason I can't see any icon to start it up. On my PC I use a small orange man icon to get into street view, but I am seeing nothing like that. I must be missing something that's obviously right in front of me.

    Thanks
