When moving from Android to Windows Phone one of the apps I missed was Google Maps. The default Windows Phone maps have improved vastly over a previous couple of years and Nokia’s HERE maps are excellent but the one thing I exploit Google Maps for on Android is looking at real-time traffic data especially once I am watching the simplest route home plus I often use Street View.
Google doesn’t make any apps for Windows Phone aside from a lacklustre search app so if you would like to use Google Maps for Windows Phone you’re getting to need to use the browser or a third-party app
Google default Maps for Windows Phone and say it or not, Google has accepted the very fact that it’ll indeed need to provide support to Google Maps App for Windows Phone. They will be used through Internet Explorer but still don’t offer you an equivalent level of functionality as they are doing on Android.
The Google Maps application is out there on Windows Phone Marketplace which isn’t the official application but performs in a particular manner as Google maps. It’s been developed by a 3rd party called Clarity
