Here’s the app for all of you that miss Google maps, and some of you that just like maps. Really nice take on Google maps, I’ve not played with it much, but it has a couple of great features:

  • Pull to re-route. This was always a huge limitation of Maps before and now if you need to re-route you just pull down. Great feature.
  • The map follows you as you drive/walk along the route so you don’t have to swipe to keep up. Not quite turn by turn, but very nice.

Give it a try.

Update: I was mistaken in what was powering the backend. Google Maps is not there, Google Places is.
