Google Maps for iOS6 now available in iTunes store

It seems as though ever since ditched for their own version of GPS mapping, rumors have been flying about Google releasing a standalone app in the App . I had been using iOS 5.1.1 up until recently, when I swapped my 4S for an iPhone 5 so I hadn't yet experienced Apple maps(sans some experimentation in the early beta versions). I have to say that I haven't really experienced any major issues with Apple maps in the few days I have been using it, however there have been loads of people loathing over the application on the internet for months now. Everything from mislabeled landmarks, incorrect directions and lack of options to several reports of motorists being stranded by the faulty application.
