Maps app for Apple iOS 6 devices

After cutting ties with Google Maps, Apple developed their own Maps app to the dismay of millions of Apple users. With criticisms hounding the company due to their native Maps app, Apple CEO Tim Cook issued an apology last week due to the company’s failure to provide its consumers a usable and worthy replacement for Google Maps.

In lieu of the shortcomings of their own Maps app, Cook has collated a number of third-party maps app in the Apple App Store putting them in the heading “Find maps for your iPhone”.

Here you can see about 13 Maps apps, ranging from free to premium apps. You can choose between the free MapQuest, to the paid versions of Gokivo GPS Navigator or Magellan RoadMate USA.

Though Cook said that Apple users should be more patient in their native Maps app, he suggested that for the meantime, Apple users can download app such as MapQuest and Waze in the App Store.

If you would like to use Google Maps, then users can go to the Website of Google Maps where they can use it there. You can also use Nokia maps on its Website.

For iPhone 5 users, majority of these Maps app doesn’t support your device as of now.
