KierzanDax: zedster: Nem Wan: Google quickly produced a standalone YouTube app for iOS when they lost Apple's preinstalled app. Google makes many other apps for iOS. There is going to be a Google Maps app.Google makes a lot more money from Youtube than from Maps. Also Apple will ban any app that they feel replicates a feature built into the OS. I doubt the would block Google Maps but you never know. Google gains more from now having a killer feature on Android that iOS lacks than by creating a maps app for iOS.I agree there is no upside for Google for producing a stand-alone map app for IOS. But, if they do make one, Apple won't ban it. Map Quest has an IOS app that had the missing feature everyone wanted: vocal turn by turn directions, and it has lived along side the default mapping app with no problems.
