Apple haven't been having happy days lately, their shares prices are at a bad low right now, the iPhone 5 didn't sell anywhere near analysts expectations. On top of that, their decision to throw Maps on iOS 6, ditching Google Maps for iOS hasn't gone down well, either.

According to the developer, the standalone version of Google Maps for iOS is in alpha testing, but has some great improvements over the previous Google Maps app. This includes the new app being vector-based, sporting two-finger rotation on any angle, and is "super fast". Best of all, it supports the new, taller 4-inch iPhone 5 screen.
