Nokia Here Maps removed from iOS App Store

Nokia Here Maps, a navigation app for iPhone and iPad users, was removed by Nokia from the iOS App Store.

Nokia blames the recent changes to iOS 7 for the removal of the app. They believe it hinders the user experience. Users can still use the mobile version at m.here.com.

If users search for the Here Maps now on the App Store, they are going to be disappointed to see the message saying "It's no longer available."

A Nokia spokesperson told CNET:

We don't want to blame Apple or iOS 7 -- the app simply was not optimized for iOS 7 so we decided to remove it.
