    After the long time disappointment from many users due to Apple’s mapping solution replacing Google Maps for iOS in iOS 6, the wait to get a Google Maps application on your iPhone may finally be over. AllThingsD reports that Google is set to release their official Google Maps application in the App Store tonight.

    The Google Maps application has been in its beta stages for several weeks now and was distributed to testers to make sure the application worked correctly before officially releasing it. Images of the application were leaked in its alpha stages just two months ago, showing a Google-esque interface.

    Should the application become available in the App Store tonight, it is expected to be free. It should offer more features than are available in the Web application, which is all that iOS 6 users have been able to use apart from the stray handful of third party Google Maps applications that land in the App Store and ended up getting pulled. That's not to say that every single one has been pulled, however.

    There has been worry from the Google side of the fence that the application may not pass the App Store’s approval process, so it should be interesting to see if the application becomes available as it is expected to be. We will update you if the application becomes available.

    Never had a problem with iOS 6 Maps app myself, but good to see that there's some competition that'll (hopefully) make Apple get itself together and make the iOS 6 Maps apps reach its full potential.

    I'll stick with iOS maps, been working fine for me. I try to avoid Google services/products as much as I can. Their search is about the only one I use, other than that, I'll stick to other choices.

    It would be great if there was an option to use this as the default for everything - Siri, Contacts, Reminders, etc. I know that's not happening. Still, options >>>>

    It says the item you are trying to download is no longer available. Did they pull it already or something?

    Negative, it's live and functioning in the US App Store (for me at least, just downloaded it less than a minute ago).

    Also, this is technically a request for a pirated app, even though it is free. Piracy isn't exactly welcomed here.

    Just hang in there, you'll probably be able to download it in short order.
