WSJ: Native iOS Google Maps app being tested externally with turn-by-turn navigation baked in

Google Maps for iOS

If Apple’s homegrown mapping solution isn’t quite cutting it, your navigation needs may soon be met by a native iOS Google Maps app. Citing an unnamed source, the Wall Street Journal says Page and Co. are distributing a test version of the fabled app to folks outside the firm, making good on their earlier commitment to bring Google Maps to iOS. The WSJ’s source expects the app to be outfitted with turn-by-turn navigation, but didn’t mention when it might finally see an official release. As it stands, the search giant is said to be putting the finishing touches on the app before submitting it for App Store approval.
