    Cult of Mac has word today of a way in which all those who are missing Google Maps since they installed iOS 6 can bring back the good old days, with an app called ClassicMap. The app was created by Katsumi Kishikawa, and Cult of Mac says that it’s a “wrapper†for map data from elsewhere. The Standard mode shows you the regular iOS 6 maps data from the new app, but when you turn up the bottom-right corner and select Classic mode, you’ll be able to view that old familiar iOS 5 Maps layout. Cult of Mac says that it is pretty much the same as the old Maps app, albeit much more basic, without all the bells and whistles such as direction-finding and Street View, or even Points of Interest, but it works fine, although a little slow, they say. ClassicMap features map, satellite and hybrid views in both modes. Sounds good? Well it’s free, so even better!
