Google Maps for iPhone Was Downloaded 10 Million Times in 48 Hours

How popular was Google Maps for iPhone? How about 10 million downloads in 48 hours popular.

Jeff Huber (the Google VP responsible for Maps among other things) announced in a Google+ post that in just 48 hours Google Maps for iPhone was downloaded 10 million times:

“We’re excited for the positive reception of Google Maps for iPhone around the world,” writes Huber. “Congratulations to the Maps Team on the recognition for the passion and hard work they poured into it, for this release and over the last 7+ years.”

That’s about 2.5% of all iPhones in case you’re wondering.

Pretty amazing. Now, here’s the question: which map app do you prefer? Apple or Google (or something else)?

I gave the turn-by-turn directions a try yesterday heading to a part of town where I almost always get lost, and I like the Apple version better. I found the directions easier to read at a distance (since my iPhone was stuck on my windshield). How about you?
