Nokia Here lands on the App Store, offers a worthy alternative to Apple Maps
Nokia Here has just landed on the App Store, and it comes with the promise to make you "feel like a local anywhere you go." Nokia here basically brings the Navteq-based maps to iOS in a native shell, and that is a great thing.

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.
