You have probably noticed across the web, nobody seems really happy with the new Apple maps app that comes with iOS6. Google are saying they have a new app ready for users, but Apple seem to be pulling their feet in getting it approved for the app store.
Well, there is a solution to this, the simplest thing to do is access it via Safari or whatever browser you are using on your iOS device. After loading the page ( maps.google.com ), Google will ask you if you’d like to add an icon for it to your devices home screen. It runs a little slower than the dedicated app, but until Apple approve the new app, it appears to be the easiest way to use Google Maps on your iOS device.
