    We first heard news that it was on the way a few days back, and now AppleInsider reports that Nokia’s dedicated “Here†maps app has found its way to the App Store. The app is HTML5-based, and comes complete with offline capabilities. Also, and unlike Apple’s much-maligned (although some people actually quite like it, it must be said!) in-house iOS Maps app, Here also boasts voice-guided walking navigation and directions for public transport users.

    Nokia also said that future updates will be bringing 3D capabilities to the app.

    Me, too. It made me laugh.

    I like Google maps, and nothing I've read about Nokia's app makes me want to switch.

    No way I'd use a mapping system called "Here". I know where I am. I want to be "There", not "Here".

    Could've been worse. Might have been called "Where?" Lol.

    The pois and in general database is lacking compared to google maps...Nokia being huge here in India I thought they would have a much more comprehensive database in this country atleast comparable to google...well atleast they are not withholding any features here :D
