Google Maps is now available for iPhone!

Google Maps for iOS 6I am an iPhone junkie! I love my iPhone and I love iOS. That being said I am not Such an Apple fan boy that I am unwilling to call them out when they screw up. I have very high expectations from Apple when it comes to quality, service, and user experience. When I launched the Apple Maps app for the first time I was stunned by how awesome it looked. Downtown Bellevue Washington was beautifully rendered and I thought “This is going to be awesome!” Then I used it… and let’s just be honest here… They sucked. Now for all you Android fans out there. I had an Android phone and I liked it. I REALLY liked the maps on Android. However, the Google Maps I had on my phone was NOT The same maps Android users were getting, and that was what Apple was trying to fix. With that in mind, for me if ONE good thing came out of the whole Apple iOS Maps debacle; it was that I now have turn by turn directions on my Google Maps iPhone app! YAY! so head on over to the app store and download it!

From Google:

People around the world have been asking for Google Maps on iPhone. Starting today, we’re pleased to announce that Google Maps is here—rolling out across the world in the Apple App Store. It’s designed from the ground up to combine the comprehensiveness and accuracy of Google Maps with an interface that makes finding what you’re looking for faster and easier.

ZombiU for the Wii U!

When I first heard about the Wii U I was not very excited to be honest! That was until I saw the latest trailers for ZombiU! I bought my Nintendo Wii shortly after launch, but never played it as much as I thought I would. I was sucked in by the innovative game play and motion control, but was very disappointed by the graphics quality and spent most of my time and money on my Xbox 360 because I liked the feel of the controller, the pretty graphics, and the epic stories in true next generation consoles. From the looks of these two videos Nintendo nailed it this time. Good use of motion control, pretty graphics, and truly innovative gameplay! I like it

So… What do you think? Did Nintendo hit a home run this time? I feel like they did, but I’ll know for sure when I finally get to play with it at PAX Prime 2012. One things for sure… Unless im horribly disappointed at PAX the Wii U will be under my Christmas tree this year!
