Google Maps is available across the world for free in the Apple App Store

Google Maps is now available on iPhone, Google announced today.

Apple had infamously yanked out the Google Maps from its App store but now it is being rolled out across the world, including Singapore, according to the Internet Giant.

The map has been designed from the ground up to combine the comprehensiveness and accuracy of Google Maps with an interface that makes finding what you're looking for faster and easier, said the Internet company.

"To complete the Google Maps ecosystem, we're also releasing the Google Maps SDK for iOS and a simple URL scheme to help developers easily use Google Maps when building their beautiful and innovative apps," said the company in a statement.

The new Google Maps app is available for the iPhone and iPod Touch (4th gen) iOS 5.1 and higher, in more than 40 countries and 29 languages, including Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish.
