Nokia removes HERE Maps app from iOS App Store due to incompatibility with iOS 7

Nokia removes HERE Maps app from iOS App Store due to incompatibility with iOS 7 Nokia has pulled their HERE Maps application from the iOS App Store citing compatibility issues with iOS 7.
The company released the app last November for iOS 6, a couple of months after Apple released its own mapping solution that has improved significantly since its unveiling.

While Nokia had initially come out of the gate swinging with its own offerings for iOS and Android, the HERE Maps app for iOS has been left for dead, with no updates in the last ten months. iOS has seen significant updates in the last ten months, and Nokia has not even updated the bugs in the original app.

Nokia says that the "app was simply not optimized for iOS 7 so we decided to remove it," making sure not to blame Apple in the process.

There will likely not be too many upset users, as Google Maps and Apple Maps are much more robust (and constantly updated) applications.
