Google Maps becomes the first Android app to reach the gigantic milestone.
If you have downloaded Google Maps on your Android smartphone, congratulations, you are now a statistic etched forever in the long history of Google.
The popular navigation application has been download 50 million times, a milestone reached by no other Android app so far. And it’s not too surprising, Google Maps is one of the best navigation application, regardless of the platform. The software includes 3D modeling, multi-touch zoom and pan, free voice-guided turn-by-turn navigation (a premium service on mostly every nav app) and support for Google’s Latitude and Places services. Best of all, and amazingly, it’s completely free.
Well, all we can say is congrats Google. Now get working on an iOS version, even if its a little gimped down. Please?
