Well, this is another kick in the teeth for Apple. Just hours after the re-release of Google Maps, it’s sitting right a the top of Apple’s free downloads section in the App Store. Despite Apple’s best efforts to keep it under wraps by not including it in the maps section, Google Maps has made a huge impact in the App Store. However it may not be all bad for Apple, as reported by TechCrunch, the safety of having a working maps application will prompt many users to finally make the jump to iOS 6.
