Nokia Here lands on the App Store, offers a worthy alternative to Apple Maps
The app is missing some typical gestures you might be used to (like double finger actions, rotating two fingers to pan around and so on), but has one of the best and most detailed maps for a ton of countries across the globe. Best of all, it also comes with voice-guided car and on foot navigation.
It has the typical maps and satellite views enriched with traffic information and public transportation information.
We found it misses a bit in terms of points of interests, but if you care about having accurate maps for a lot of countries, this is definitely great news. Hit the source link below to get it.

Loving the meego-belle + wp inspired UI. Hope it would lure some iOS users.

it is also available on Android, but few people doesn't notice this.
But right now it is available only on Amazon app store.
can anyone download and share. I can't access Amazon app store from my location.

Come on Google get on it! what could be funny is if Google had message that appeared in iOS on web Gmaps that said "Want a real google maps experience? Try the Nexus 4 today, the playground is open"

There's no option for voice-guided CAR navigation, only walking. The article should be updated.
