Google has announced publicly that its new Google Maps for iOS was downloaded over 10 million times in the first 48 hours that it launched in the app store by the way of Jeff Huber. This is a huge slap in the face for Apple after their terrible failure with their own map application that replaced the original native Google Maps app following the software upgrade to iOS 6. The new app released from Google gives you all the old features you loved from the original, but also includes turn by turn navigation which is a satisfying addition for many users. Google Maps continues to top Free section of the App Store's “Top Charts” and will likely continue to reign for quite some time as more and more users are finding out about its release.
Here is what Huber stated this on his Google + profile today:
