Google chairman Eric Schmidt said today that Google does not have a mapping application for iOS devices waiting in the wings. "We have not done anything yet with Google Maps," he said to reporters at an event in Tokyo. "We think it would have been better if [Apple] had kept ours. But what do I know?" Apple removed Google Maps from iOS and replaced it with its own mapping application. Even if Google does submit a new version of Google Maps for iOS -- something Schmidt would not confirm -- Apple would have to approve the application in order for iOS device users to access it. Apple Maps lacks many of the features that Google Maps has, such as transit directions and Street View.
