Google Maps for iOS in Final Testing
Google has nearly completed a new version of Google Maps for Apple's iPhone, reports the Wall Street Journal. According to the Journal's sources, Google has given a near-final version of Google Maps to testers outside of Google. Google will soon submit the app to Apple's App Store for approval.
