Google’s iPhone Maps Quest Nearing End?

Apple Iphone 5 Samsung Galaxy S3 MapsGoogle is nearly ready to release Google Maps for iOS.

Google has distributed a test version of its new Google Maps for iOS app, and is “putting the finishing touches” on it before submitting it to the iTunes App Store, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter, as reported by the Wall Street Journal.

The report says that the reworked Google Maps app will come with turn-by-turn navigation, which didn’t feature in the app before it was booted from iOS. However, there’s also talk that the app will be more advertising heavy, with Google looking to make more cash out of the release.

A Google spokesman, although unable to comment specifically on the rumors, certainly hinted that they were true.

“We believe Google Maps are the most comprehensive, accurate and easy-to-use maps in the world,” he said. “Our goal is to make Google Maps available to everyone who wants to use it, regardless of device, browser, or operating system.”

The report doesn’t say when Google Maps will arrive in the iOS App Store, but we’d bet on Google trying to beat Nokia, which announced on Tuesday that it will be bringing its new Here mapping service to Apple devices.
