gMaps Pro for Windows Phone 7

If you’re coming from Android or iOS, or even generally buying a Windows Phone as your first phone, and you happen to reside outside USA or UK, you’ll notice how little coverage your region gets in Bing Maps. It’s a relatively new service and to cover the entire globe it will take a lot of time. Google Maps has been here for a while and it covers pretty much every country. Unfortunately there isn’t any Google Maps app on Windows Phone 7 until now. gMaps Pro helps to bridge this big gap between Android and WP7 by introducing a maps app that runs on Google Maps rather than Bing.

The app comes in two versions: paid and unpaid. The paid version has fewer features and is add supported. It does however have full Google Maps with routing. The pro version brings Google Latitude support. This means you can share your location live with your friends or see where they are at that moment. It even pulls down your Google profile picture. There’s also a new feature called weather layer that is essentially a layer on the map which shows off weather conditions in different regions. The maps available are the same ones you’ll find on official Google Maps application so they’re regularly up to date and just as detailed. You can switch between drive and walk mode and the pointer towards your location will also tell you your movement speed. The available layers include street, water, physical etc so you’re well covered there. The app also has the ability to take a screen shot of the current map. You can then share it wherever you want. The latest version also brings minor theming, so the app will follow the color theme you’ve chosen for the rest of the phone.

Performance wise there isn’t much to complain here. Even though the app has not been updated to take advantage of Mango, it still resumes pretty swiftly and is overall pretty smooth in operation. There are a few bugs here and there for example your movement speed can sometimes be really off despite having a strong GPS connection. Language support includes English, German, Italian, Spanish and quite a few others. Even if you’re not willing to pay for the app, the free version will offer you everything except latitude with addition of adds. There really isn’t an alternative for this app in the WP marketplace and unless Google comes up with an official version, I don’t see any one making anything better. It’s one of the most useful apps available and it’s highly recommended.
