Nokia Here lands on the App Store, brings voice guided navigation and offline maps

As promised, Nokia’s HERE maps has launched on iOS this morning. Nokia’s mapping program has been one of the bright spots on the Windows Phone Marketplace for Lumia headsets, and with Apple’s in-house built Maps program facing significant glitches and growing pains, HERE will provide users a top-notch experience that Apple Maps can’t yet provide.

HERE provides voice-guided walking and driving directions, as well as in-app support for public transit options, and includes map overlay options for live traffic and public transit lines. Additionally, users can save map areas for viewing for when you don’t have access to a data connection, though the map size is limited to just 10MB. The larger area you pick, the less detail you’ll have at your disposal.

Nokia HERE can be had for free on the App Store for iPad and iPhone users.
