    Do you think the JB community will figure out a way to bring the Google Maps app back to iOS6?

    Don't upgrade, I'm downgrading back to 5.1.1 to get my Google Maps back along with my JB. The changes in 6.0 just aren't great enough for me to stay on it.

    At the end of the day I don't think it will be *too* hard. It's just an apk at the end of the day. Now, system integration of the old app, on the other hand....that could be interesting. I'm more waiting to see if they're able to pull some of the new features down to the iPhone 4. I think that's more of a mystery and a challenge at this point.

    Google has submitted a map app to apple for approval...I assume it will go through if apple has allowed chrome

    I wouldn't hold my breath for that. The only thing more humiliating for Apple than approving a Gmaps app would be to publicly admit that their own, much-touted solution is not up to the job. I don't think they're classy enough to do either so I reckon this will be left up to the JB communicty to sort out.

    That official google YouTube app sucks in my opinion, not having a volume slider just bugs me

    THe google voice app is horrible too

    The only google app i like is google translate , is ok

    Chrome works great, and the gmail is pretty good though I wish it worked with lockinfo like the mail app
