Fret no more, iPhone users who downloaded iOS 6.0 before understanding that Apple Maps sucked! Google just released the much-awaited Google Maps app for the iPhone and iPod touch. And, what's more, it actually has more functionality and sharper images than the version of Google Maps that was previously part of the Apple iOS.

The new app features a sharper looking map, voice navigation, local search, Street View, tilting of 2D and 3D views, and all the previous functionality like live traffic conditions, etc.

Download it from iTunes here.

Anyway, we thought you should know. And here's the promo video.
