Finally Google Maps is back, and it kicks Apple Maps all over the place! We all know Google didn’t have to do this, they could have let people suffer with Apple Maps, but being the kind hearted superhero they are, they saved Apple users from the demise that was Apple Maps… The only thing I find missing that is on my HTC One X, is downloading offline maps…
