There has been a lot of speculations whether Google will release its own Maps app for iOS, after Apple replaced the Maps app powered by Google’s mapping data with its own in-house developed Maps app.
Ben Guild – iOS developer who had figured out a way to run Google Maps to run in fullscreen mode with the older iOS 5 Maps logo, has just posted photos of Google’s native Maps app for iOS.
According to Ben Guild, Google’s native Maps app will offer the following features:
- It’s vector-based.
- It’s got two-finger rotation to any angle.
- It’s super fast.
- 4-inch height of the iPhone 5 is supported!
He has posted some blurry photos of the native Maps app running on the iPhone:
Guild says that the app is currently in alpha. It remains to be seen when Google will release the app in the App Store.
