gMaps - Windows 8 client application for Google Maps

gMaps allows you to:

  • get directions (car, bicycle, public transit or walk)
  • search for venues using powerful local search
  • voice search support
  • search charms support
  • rotate map straight where you're heading
  • find your location on the map

Directions: You can get directions from/to your location or between two coordinates/addresses. Different travel modes like 'Driving', 'Cycling', 'Walking' or 'Public transit' are supported. When route is built, you can browse route steps or select alternate route

Local search: Search for landmark, venues or stores using powerful local search. You can easily use your voice to search (use microphone button next to the search textbox)

Your position: You can easily find out your current position using 'locate-me' button in the bottom left corner. To use compass integration please tap 'compass' button in the top left corner.

Roadmap: More features are coming to the map:

  • Night map mode support
  • Map and position sharing
  • Latitude support and
  • many many more.

We're working on bringing all gMaps for Windows Phone features to the Windows 8 platform.

Some grammar problems with your description: "When route is built, you can browse route steps or select alternate route" > "When a route is built, you can browse (the)? route steps or select an alternate route"; "(use microphone button next to the search textbox)" > "(use the microphone button next to the search textbox)"; "This is 3-rd party application" > "This is a 3-rd party application"

Thank you for the corrections. We will update the description with the next release.

Good app, but still lacks some features (you should focus on having at least the same one as default's bing maps app does). Anyways, I voted you in my top 3

Is this the same app as gMaps on Windows Phone ?
DreamTeam Mobile Dec 4 '12 at 2:17
Yes, this app has been developed by the same team. It doesn't have all features from WP version but we work hard to deliver them ASAP.
Rups Dec 1 '12 at 20:21
This app looks promising.
DreamTeam Mobile Dec 2 '12 at 20:42
Thanks! You can try it out right now. It is available at Windows Store for free.

I need nothing more than this app, great :)
Topol Namaki Nov 26 '12 at 18:38
exactly. me too.

Great app. I like the decently sized and easy to see icon too as i only want to quickly glance at the map while i'm on the move and know where i am!

Nice, because Bing Maps isn't always as good in Belgium.
sunder Nov 21 '12 at 9:11
Great app for those country users where bing map does not have great reach yet.
Ethan Lee Nov 14 '12 at 6:29
I like the idea, but the screenshots make the location pointer look really big...can this be changed by the user?
Alex Sorokoletov Nov 15 '12 at 13:49
They're not so big as you think. Now it's not customizable, but this is completely possible.
Ethan Lee Nov 15 '12 at 21:52
OK, will try downloading then. This is a great-looking app otherwise!
Matteo Mosconi Nov 11 '12 at 10:56
I was looking for this, thanks!
Alex Sorokoletov Nov 8 '12 at 14:28
Finally! And latitude is on it's way!
