Nokia’s Here Maps app is back on iPhone after more than a year-long absence.
Not only can you get the typical mapping functions, but you can get public transit info, live traffic info, and photos and reviews of various locations. Once again, the Here Maps app allows you to download maps for offline use. Even the turn-by-turn navigation feature is enabled offline once you download the maps.
Nokia’s Here Maps app was pulled from the App Store more than a year ago because of compatibility issues with iOS 7. At the time, Nokia said that the app was “simply not optimised for iOS 7.” It said that changes made in iOS 7 could harm the user experience.
The app has been tweaked since then, and there’s no doubting that the app looks significantly better.
The Nokia Here Maps app is now available from the App Store. Or at least it will be as soon as the App Store’s issues have been resolved and new apps can be added.
