Nokia released HERE Maps for iOS this morning, and in baseball parlance I would call it a swing and a miss. People are eager for a viable alternative to the much maligned Apple Maps app, but HERE Maps is no holy grail.
Nokia is not new to the mapping business. They own NAVTEQ, which powers a lot of in car systems. The universal free app gives you a live traffic view, public transportation views and satellite imagery. It has the ability to save an area so you are not without maps when you lose your data connection. Destinations can be shared via email, text messaging or via social networks.
