Will Google’s Maps App For iOS Be Just What These Top Institutional Shareholders Desire?

Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) released their native Maps app for iOS (NASDAQ:AAPL), just in time to show itself off on all the shiny new iPhones that will be purchased this holiday season and let existing users, who gave up on Apple’s inbuilt Maps, heave a sigh of relief. Techcrunch is positive about this offering from Google, saying it runs as smooth as a video game and is a radical overhaul over any previous Google maps experience. Menus come up with a swipe and information is displayed in excellent detail immediately on booting up the app. It features an excellent UI (the map itself is the UI) and is voice guided with turn-by-turn directions and transit directions for public transportation and walking. Google has also included a spanking new SDK for developers to integrate  with their own apps. The only complaints are that there are no biking directions, off-line mode, indoor maps or offers.

Will Google Inc.’s shareholders increase their holdings? They reported owning a total of 242.648 million shares on 09/30/2012. The shares closed at $754.50 on 09/30/2012.
