Nokia has announced that they are launching their Nokia HERE maps app on Apple’s iPhone and iPad, the company released their new Android version of the app last year.
Nokia HERE maps was previously available on the iPhone, although the app was pulled when iOS 7 was released back in 2013.
HERE for iOS is a completely different app from the one previously available on the App Store – because the old version was based on HTML5, it had limited features and it wasn’t optimized for iOS. This time we’re introducing an experience built for iOS from the ground up with the features and the polished feel that people rightly expect from their favourite map app.
The Nokia HERE app is expected to be made available on the iTunes app store later today, the app is already approved and ready to go, although Apple are having a few technical issues with the app store, which is delaying the release of the app, hopefully the issue will be fixed shortly.
The app comes with an offline navigation mode which will give you full turn by turn voice navigation even when you have no connection. It also comes with turn by turn alerts for walking and more.
