After the issues with iOS Maps application many turned at other solutions and asked for dedicated mobile applications for maps. I asked on twitter where was a Nokia Maps app for iOS and Android devices and today Nokia announced that the app is Here !
“People want great maps, and with HERE we can bring together Nokia’s location offering to deliver people a better way to explore, discover and share their world,” said Nokia President and CEO Stephen Elop. “Additionally, with HERE we can extend our 20 years of location expertise to new devices and operating systems that reach beyond Nokia. As a result, we believe that more people benefit from and contribute to our leading mapping and location service.”
That’s the name of the Nokia Maps app for iOS and Android devices:
“To further extend its location services, Nokia is launching a maps application for iOS under the HERE brand. Based on HTML5, it will include offline capabilities, voice-guided walk navigation, and public transport directions. The application is scheduled to be available for free download from Apple’s App Store in the coming weeks.”
