  • While good navigation apps cost money, Google Maps is FREE
  • cons
  • The app tends to be a little jittery on the iPhone 4

Digit Verdict: Google Maps for iOS 6 Review

By Swapnil Mathur

Google Maps for iOS 6 is quite a sigh of relief. It's everything we had wanted from a mapping app, accuracy and functionality, all packed into a neat, simple user interface. Our only beef is that it runs a little slow on our iPhone 4, but it would run just fine on the new iPhone 5 (which the app is compatible with). However, we can't help but feel that Google dropped the ball on one thing. They made it free. At this point, with the kind of anticipation that had been building up for Google Maps on iOS6, Google could have easily charged anything between $5-15 and people would have still bought it. But instead, Google made it free.
