As you all might know, iOS 6 was missing Google Maps App when it was one of the most useful apps and majority was complaining, so as we were expecting, Google released their Google Maps app for iOS devices at the App Store today....

They sure did.
However, I do think that Apple maps is based on superior technology with the vector map vs tiles like gmaps.

With a comparable amount of time, resources and user-input invested, I think Apple maps would end up being better.

Thanks for the info. I used to utilize Google Maps on a daily basis for my work and have been struggling without it. The Apple Map program is not good and failed me on many occasions.
Downloading the new Google Map app now...

If I'm not mistaken, the new Google Maps does use vector mapping.
