/// Nokia Yanks Here Maps From Apple’s App Store
Here Maps, the mapping service that Nokia touted as an alternative to Apple’s first ill-starred iOS Maps app , is gone from the App Store today, and evidently iOS 7 is the reason. “We have made the decision to remove our Here Maps app from the Apple App Store because recent changes to iOS 7 harm the user experience,” Nokia said in a statement. “iPhone users can continue to use the mobile Web version of Here Maps under m.here.com , offering them core location needs, such as search, routing, orientation, transit information, and more, all completely free of charge.” It’s not clear how, exactly, iOS 7 harmed the Here Maps experience, though some report that the app became quite buggy with the advent of Apple’s latest mobile OS. Apple did not respond to a request for comment.
