After launching the HERE Beta to Samsung Galaxy store on October 8 and for all Android devices on October 21, Nokia has now launched HERE Beta Android app on Google Play store. The app has seen great love from Android users and even before its launch on Google Play, it amassed almost 1 million downloads before even coming to Google Play store. The HERE Maps iOS app had also been confirmed in works by Nokia earlier and while it was also expected to launch by end of year, HERE team has informed that it is expected to launch in early 2015 now.
Following the positive reviews of HERE for Android, a lot of people have expressed their interest in an iOS version of our app. We really appreciate this interest and demand. Our iOS app development team is working hard on this and we plan to officially launch HERE for iOS in early 2015.
With its unrivaled offline Maps and navigation support, HERE Maps may certainly give Google Maps a run for its money on iOS too. You can read how Google Maps and HERE Maps Android apps compare to each other in our shootout review.
