Google Maps for iPhone is now available on Apple Apps Store and 29 languages, including Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
Google Maps app now has a sharper looking, vector-based map and provides smooth tilting and rotating of 2D and 3D views. Depends on your the availability in your country, Google Maps for iPhone provides voiced-guided turn-by-turn navigation, public transit directions, live traffic information, Street View, and more.
It’s great, isn’t it? The bad news is.. Google Maps for iPhone is only available in 30+ countries, excluding Malaysia (my country). You would need to create a US iTunes account in order to install Google Maps on your iPhone before it becomes officially available in your country.
