    ...but they've said they will release a Maps app for iOS just like they did with YouTube. No timetable though.

    Did they?
    I thought their actual wording was that they hoped to.
    I don't remember any guarantee.
    And I'm not alone.

    Oh, no question.
    But again, our hopes....... Our goals........
    Let's hear them come right out and say that they're working on an app.
    That quote makes it sound like they're focusing on something web-based.
    Which honestly, might be all that they could get away with given Apple's approval process.

    Singled handed zooming just came to Google Maps. Have to say, it's pretty awesome.

    Double tap then hold the second tap to slide-zoom in/out.
