Hi, can you put Google maps back to iPhone?

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

I haven't upgraded my IOS beyond 5 because I require Google Map to be the default native app on my iPhone. Plus I have hundreds of bookmarks which cannot be transferred. I have used Apple Maps on my iPad, but considering it can't even map out my neighborhood properly, it's a piece of junk. StreetViews is also something I use regularly.

Nobody will use Apple Maps after the colossal cock up it was at launch.

@first two posters - Google maps has been available as an app for sometime now.

Wonder if there's a correlation between this acquisition and the recent hacking. Timing is convenient.
