Google putting 'finishing touches' on 'maps for Apple iPhone'

Google putting 'finishing touches' on 'maps for Apple iPhone'London - Internet search giant Google is likely to submit a new Google Maps app for the iPhone to Apple for approval, a report has claimed.

A person with direct knowledge of the matter said that Google has distributed a test version of its new mapping app that will work on Apple's iPhones to some individuals outside the company.

The person also said that Google has been putting the finishing touches on the app before submitting it for approval to the Apple iTunes store, the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the Journal, if Google's new mapping app is accepted into the iTunes store, it will directly compete against Apple's new mapping software that is preinstalled on its mobile devices.

In mid-September, Apple released its latest iPhone and iPad software called iOS 6 that automatically replaced a Google Maps app that was preinstalled on its mobile devices with Apple's own mapping software.

Apple's move to boot Google Maps, however, backfired, as numerous consumers complained Apple's version was riddled with inaccurate data.
