I overheard a painful Studiomates conversation this morning about how bad the iOS 6 Maps app is and how everyone that upgraded to iOS 6 misses Google Maps. Apparently Google has promised to come to the rescue by releasing a standalone iPhone app. But until then there’s a work-around that will tie you over:
If you have iOS 6 on your phone, point your Safari browser to maps.google.com and click the export button in the middle of the menu bar to save the app to your homescreen. Once installed, you’ll now see “Google Maps” on your homescreen complete with its own appropriately designed app icon.
