Nokia has released their HERE Maps, a clear competitor to Google Maps, for the Samsung smartphones on the Samsung Galaxy Apps Store today. The HERE Maps app is absolutely free for all the Samsung smartphone users.
The main advantage of HERE Maps over Google Maps is that HERE Maps allows its users to access maps offline, which implies no data connection required once you have downloaded the required maps. While Google Maps allows only some segments of its maps to be downloaded for offline usage, HERE took a step forward.
It is expected that Nokia would expand HERE Maps services to other Android smartphones too, and if this happens to be true, then HERE Maps could be a huge competition to Google Maps on Android devices. But since HERE Maps is currently in beta, if you happen to be encountered with any issues, don’t be surprised.
