Nokia has just launch a new free alternative to iOS Maps. The new app called “HERE Maps” provides offline maps along with walking and transit directions. Looks like someone beat Google to the App Store.
Description from the App Store:
HERE Maps helps you feel like a local anywhere you go. See where you are, search and discover nearby places, and get a feel for the place. Collect places to remember or for later discovery. Explore new destinations and know instantly how to get there on foot, by car or on public transport. HERE Maps is based on the world-class NAVTEQ mapping data used in 90% of in-car navigation systems in the world.
