Nokia had about a week back announced that it had submitted its HERE Maps App to Apple and it will be available for both the iPhone and the iPad very soon.
And today, the app has hit the iTunes App Store bringing in Nokia’s advanced mapping service to the iOS devices.
The HERE Maps is feature packed and will be a great app to use for iPhone and iPad users in the absence of Google Maps and the improving Appel Maps. Nokia has indeed taken advantage of the situation and has made the right move to bring the HERE Maps to the iOS platform.
HERE Maps is based on the world-class NAVTEQ mapping data used in 90% of in-car navigation systems in the world and arrives with the following features:
- Map views – Pick the map you need from map view, live traffic view, public transport line view or satellite view
- Save map areas & wander without data coverage
- In selected countries, access community maps created and updated by users
- Maps, search and place coverage for nearly 200 countries
- Search with history and suggestions
- Share places with just a tap, including the location and how to get there, over SMS, email, or social networks
- Organize places you love into Collections
- Sign in to HERE Maps with your Nokia Account or Facebook login
- Sync with Here.net – Access your Collections anywhere
- Step-by-Step voice-guided walk navigation
- Walk navigation through pedestrian routes, parks, alleyways, and more
- Public transportation and driving directions
The Nokia HERE Maps weighs just 3.7 MB and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or later and not to worry, the app is optimized for iPhone 5.
