An official version of Google Maps is said to have been submitted to the App Store, but it’s unknown if Apple will ever approve it. In the meantime, iOS hacker Ryan Petrich — read his iFans interview — has ported Google Maps to his iPhone 3GS running iOS 6. Petrich notes that the port still crashes often and isn’t ready for a public release yet, but it’s still promising to see that someone is working on this project. Apple’s own in-house Maps debuted on iOS 6 to much criticism, with many users complaining about the lack of public transportation information, inaccurate destination and landmark results, and poor cartography in certain areas.
