Google denies immediate plans to create iPhone Maps app
London: Internet search giant Google has denied reports claiming it would create an iPhone and iPad app to replace Apple’s flopped Maps service.
Earlier it was claimed that Google was planning to release its own map app for the tech giant`s smartphones and computer tablets.
Google`s Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt denied the claim, but refused to rule out launching an app in the future.
Schmidt said Google and Apple were in constant communication ‘at all kinds of levels.’
But he said any decision on whether Google Maps would be accepted as an application in the Apple App Store would have to be made by Apple.
“We have not done anything yet,” the paper quoted him, as saying.
Last week, some reports suggested that Google has been working on the app for months, and had submitted a proposal to Apple for approval.
The revelations emerged as Apple is facing widespread crticism over omissions and errors made in its own Maps app in the newly unveiled iPhone5.
