Nokia pulls HERE Maps from Apple App Store

Nokia pulls HERE Maps from Apple App Store
A published report on Friday cites a Nokia spokesman as saying that the Finnish based manufacturer has pulled its HERE Maps out of the Apple App Store. In a statement, a Nokia spokesman said that changes in iOS 7 "harm user experience". The app became available on the platform in November 2012 as a substitute for the troubled Apple Maps. The latter was so full of bugs when first launched, that Apple CEO Tim Cook suggested that iOS users try alternatives including Nokia's mapping service.

Nokia also noted that Apple iPhone users can still use Nokia HERE by directing their browser to m.here.com to use the mobile version of the mapping service. The HERE Maps app on iOS was described as being full of bugs. Zooming in on maps would freeze the app or not allow users to set the app on a medium zoom setting.


HERE Maps is one division that will be staying with Nokia after the deal with Microsoft is closed. Microsoft has signed a ten-year license for the software, which is pre-installed on Nokia Lumia handsets.
