    The Daily Mail reports today that Google Maps has already been a staggering success, with more than 10 million copies downloaded in the past 48 hours since the app appeared in the App Store, taking it straight to the top of the iTunes charts. The stunning tally was announced by Google’s Jeff Huber, who said: “We’re excited for the positive reception of Google Maps for iPhone around the world.†Huber went on to congratulate the Google Maps Team “for the passion and hard work they poured into it, for this release and over the last 7+ years.†The Daily Mail says that Google’s engineers had already begun working on the new Maps app even before Apple announced on September 19 of this year that it would be replacing Google Maps in iOS with its own in-house, and, as it turns out, ill-fated, iOS Maps app. The new Google Maps app includes several new features, such as turn-by-turn directions, but it does not yet include other Android-exclusive features, such as in-building directions in places such as malls.
