AwwWww a case where competition does not help the consumers. That free app would of been a great new feature!
I don't think this was a good move on Google's part. They're essentially tying their mobile phone software to their hardware, a strategy that has been immensely successful for Apple, but doesn't quite fit with Google's "consumer-first" approach.
P.S. I'm basing my statement on my opinion that Google is one of the more consumer-friendly mega-corporations.
"but doesn't quite fit with Google's "consumer-first" approach."
I'd say Google's main approach is "future first". In this case, they don't want to reward the users who chose the closed platform.
True, and also there's been a rivalry developing between the two companies. The new iPhone OS has changed the 'Google' button to 'Search'.
But there *is* a free alternative. The Mapquest app for iPhone *does* provide spoken turn-by-turn directions, and it is free. It doesn't provide a street-level view like a dedicated GPS app would, but it is the approximate equivalent of Google Maps + turn-by-turn directions.
