Yay! No more Apple Maps jokes!

I do like Apple Map's UI, turn-by-turn (Siri integration, lockscreen, notification center integration), and Yelp integration more. But you can't argue with Google's data. Hopefully they'll continue to add the cooler features on Android.

For those having trouble getting it:

Go to Macrumors.com on your mobile device, click on the "Appstore" link in the article and download it. No issues, works great.

Call me crazy, but I'm kind of glad Apple came out with Apple Maps - because it forced Google to finally give us what we wanted for free (turn by turn).

With that said, I kind of do miss the Yelp ratings of locations. Hopefully Apple Maps will step their game up even more now...

This proves it. Google is a bitch. Apple had to kick them in the nuts so they would give us turn by turn Nav.

Strange to say, but Google Maps reminds me of Apple Maps... Still better database, which is what matters!

I just downloaded it on my iPod touch (3rd Gen). What's funny is that it seems to work better than Google Maps on Android Jelly Bean.

Are you really able to write a review after only minutes of having the app?

Just go to macrumors.com on your phone and click the app store link in the story.

Every app is released like this. It just takes time for it to propagate.

Zooming in/out seems a bit choppier than the native Apple maps.

There is no magic pill, some people's local store servers just don't have it yet.

Going to Google Earth and clicking related won't do it. Using iTunes won't do it. Clicking the link in the story won't do it.

Either you have access or you don't. None of these little tricks actually change that.
