Google Maps becomes the App Store’s most popular free app, just 7 hours after launch

After months of posturing and reports of feuds between Google and Apple, Google Maps launched on the App Store earlier today. The app is already the number one most downloaded app on Apple’s marketplace, seven hours after it became available.

As a user, I resemble that remark!

Now, can someone tell me why the Golden Gate bridge is located in Atlantic City?

You have to hold it between the fore finger and the thumb or maybe the little finger and the thumb but don't let the palm touch it, especially if sweaty.

A grateful Londoner welcomes back Google Maps in this review from the iTunes store:

Quote:
Entire London Underground reopens! *****
by Bryan Johnson

After three months of confusion, it appears that all tube stations on the London Underground have not disappeared, as some people have claimed but have actually been open all along. No longer am I confused by a label saying Camden Town directly on top of what I previously believed to be Mornington Crescent tube station. I (incorrectly) assumed that TfL relocated Camden Town station to the south to ease overcrowding and haven't used the station since September as a result. Thank you Google for reopening our beloved Underground network.

I never understood why Apple wanted to redo Googles work, which worked pretty good. It`s a bit like facebook joining Nasdaq. Another strange decision, I never understood...
