iPhone owners, rejoice, for your long national maps nightmare is almost over. According to AllThingsD, a standalone Google Maps app is going to hit the App Store sometime tonight. So long, Apple Maps. It's been... something.
Hard as it may be to believe, it's been nearly three months since Tim Cook & Co. jettisoned Google as a maps partner in favor of the apocalyptic horror show known as Apple Maps. Since then, Apple was ridiculed, the Eiffel Tower got flattened, long-standing executives were fired, apologies were issued, and lots and lots of people got lost. So, you know, all in all not a great outing.
