The premier navigation app for Windows Phone is now completely cross platform! Here Maps concludes its cross platform push today with a brand new iOS app built from the ground up to take advantage of the platform (the app itself will be coming later this week due to a store error- requires iOS7). Combined with its Android and Windows apps, HERE Maps is now one of the only completely cross platform mapping apps. That’s a pretty big deal.
Unlike HERE maps on Windows Phone however, Here for iOS, Android and Windows is a single app which has the combined ability of all the HERE sub-apps . Whether this is better or worse, depends on how you feel about the different philosophies for the different platforms.While some Windows Phone users may see this as another reason to consider going to other platforms, it would be remiss of us to not point out that more users of the HERE apps means more accurate data for HERE maps and Bing Maps on Windows.
What do you think of this recent cross platform push by HERE? Let us know in the comments below!
