US: Blaming changes in iOS 7 that ‘harm user experience’, Nokia has pulled out its Here Maps from Apple's iOS App Store. The app, which was launched amid much fanfare in November 2012, was removed earlier this month. The company's official website redirects non-Windows users to here.com to access the maps. However, the site, which works fine on a PC, was broken when accessed from an iPhone at the time of filing this report.

"We have made the decision to remove our HERE Maps app from the Apple App Store because recent changes to iOS 7 harm the user experience. iPhone users can continue to use the mobile web version of HERE Maps under m.here.com. , offering them core location needs, such as search, routing, orientation, transit information and more, all completely free of charge,” said a NOKIA spokesperson.
