Google has released an update for the Google Maps IOS SDK, into the wild so any iOS developer can access its Google Maps data and integrate the features into apps (previously it was by invite only for the advanced feature set). You can get your MAPS key on the Google Maps API Console.

The new version 1.1 includes support for markers with info windows (finally!), ground overlays, gesture control, and geodesic polylines, tilting and panning the map screen,  Giving access to all developers may mean that more third-party app developers will choose to use Google's mapping data instead of Apple's.
