Google Maps for the iPhone

(See updates at the bottom)

Original text (December 2012)

Google Maps for the iPhone was made available on the App Store last night. I donwloaded and have reading commentary and playing with it since then. This blog post will be updated as I discover new things.

• Reviews and Commentary:

 David Pogue (New York Times)

 Jacqui Cheng (Ars Technica)

Andy Ihnatko (Chicago Sun-Times)

Expect more to be added if I find interesting additions

 Two issues with the new Google Maps for the iPhone are that it doesn't use your contacts (neither Apple's or Google's [see update below]) in searches and that Siri can't activate it.
