Default Want to get google maps on iOS6? Check out 'Sparkling Maps'

Looking for a complete map app? Disappointed with the Apple maps offering? Sparkling Maps uses industry standard mapping data (google maps) to show any location across the world.

Among its features are:

- Show your current location
- Find any location by typing a name. Sparkling Maps uses an intelligent lookup mechanism to find the most probable place
- Option to display the map in satellite or hybrid mode
- Show the route between any two locations. Display a textual description of the route as well as show it on the map
- Show any local places of relevance: restaurants, atms, hospitals, post offices, gas stations, supermarkets, train stations, etc.
- Street view! Press down on a street location to enter street view mode and do a virtual walkaround of many locations around the world

And this is just the start. We have already improved the streetview functionality and are currently implementing turn by turn navigation.

Sparkling Maps works anywhere in the world and offers a high level of detail in most places.

We have submitted the first version of Sparkling Maps to the app store last week and are now waiting for Apple to approve it. It should be available this weekend for an introduction price of $0.99.

When approved, it will be available here:
