Last night Google released their new standalone Maps app for iOS and it’s now live in Apple’s App Store. The new app is a welcome addition to those users who quickly became disgruntled with Apple’s new proprietary iOS 6-exclusive mapping solution.

For a complete rundown of features, you’ll find my in-depth review of the new iOS mapping application and comparison video between Apple’s iOS 6 in-house Maps app embedded above. Stay tuned for complete coverage on both Google and Apple’s mapping services.
