Google SVP Jeff Huber said the company plans to provide an 'amazing' Google Maps experience on iOS in a Google+ comment earlier today.
We look forward to providing amazing Google Maps experiences on iOS.
This is good news for Google Maps users that were hoping the company would release a standalone app for iOS now that Apple has made its intentions to drop the service from iOS 6.
Google also announced reduced pricing for its Google Maps API following some high profile defects from the service.
Hopefully, the Google Maps app comes soon than later because at this point Apple's Maps app is completely unusable for us. It's been suggested that Google might also bring its navigation feature to iOS. Currently, that's only available to Android users.
