Google Maps on IOS 6? Easy!

So your home town doesn’t show up where it should on Apple’s new maps application in IOS 6? Are you not entirely satisfied with the mapping precision of the new service? Is the satellite imagery not exactly what you expected? Do you feel Apple has let you down?

Don’t despair, there is a solution! And an elegant one at that. Follow these steps:

  1. Go to Safari
  2. Go to this URL: maps.google.com – nice HTML 5 interface isn’t it?
  3. Press the action button
  4. Swipe to the next page and select: add to home screen.
  5. VoilĂ !

You now have two mapping applications: Apple’s native IOS6 and Google Maps courtesy of the web.

PS: don’t forget to turn on localization services for Safari.
