The emperor has returned: Google Maps is back! We've been wondering where in the world is Google Maps since Apple decided to ditch the Googs in favor of its own, entirely new application for the iOS 6 mobile operating system.
And now that order in the mobile navigation world has been restored, we can say with complete confidence that the wait was absolutely worth it. Google's new native maps app went above and beyond the call of duty with turn-by-turn directions, improved traffic conditions, 3D views, and street-level photography. Frankly, we're excited about this. And there's nothing you can do about it.
We're not the only ones pumped about the prodigal mapping app's return. We found eight fine Twitter folk with the funniest tweets about Google Maps for iOS, and before you click through, don't say we didn't warn you: the enthusiasm is contagious.
