It was just last week that we were reporting on the return of Google Maps to the Apple App Store. In the article, we mentioned that a lot of people were still living with iOS 5 because of the absence of Google’s mapping solution on iOS 6. But few people had idea idea just how many people were in that boat! According to research by mobile ad company MoPub, in the five days following the release of the application, they saw a 29% increase in iOS 6 users, which they attribute to Google’s Maps being available again.
This is not entirely surprising: it was reported earlier that Google Maps was downloaded 10 million times in the first 48 hours. This is, we suspect, much to Apple’s chagrin.
