Update for Maps on Windows Phone 8
Mapping applications have been a big story in 2012, mostly due to the disaster that was Apple Maps. But Google Maps for iOS really came out of the gate like a top-rated thoroughbred. Considering that over 10 million iOS users elected to install the app in the first 48 hours, you have to wonder if Apple would have been better off just leaving Google Maps on the phone in the first place. Sure, the whole mapping story has garnered some publicity for Apple, but not the kind that the Cupertino based tech titan wants to see.
Yeah, we seem to have digressed a little. Let's get back on track. There is an update for the Windows Phone 8 mapping application and you should grab it now. Let us know if you've installed it and what changes you can discern from it, in the comments box below.
