I trashed Nokia Here Maps before iOS7, it was not very good.
Google Maps has so many map route and address errors I'd trash it too, but I need it's Street View.
Never heard of that app until it was pulled - that shows how "important" it was.

Nokia can't do software. Simple. This is why their smartphone business died.
I haven't tried Here on ios7 but (IMO) Here on WP is better than both Google maps on Android and Apple maps on iOS.
As a Londoner I particularly like the internal Tube station layouts.
That said, the default mapping on any OS should be the best for that OS given app integration and permissions.
What's the name of your music app?
Sorry for the double post, was trying to reply to an earlier comment....As a WP8 (Lumia 1020) user and an iPad user, I completely agree that the user experience is not the same on iOS7. And I completely agree this is Nokia's fault. They do know how to write software, and for whatever reason, just didn't follow up with iOS7. The map data, as mentioned before, is very accurate, and having recently retired from the US Navy, never had a problem when I was overseas with the map data on both devices.
Not to take away from the software writer jkichline , Nokia is a company with resources (i.e. larger budget). They have a software development department, bottom line is that they just did not update the app.

Too bad for Windows phone users. I used it for less than one day on iOS. It was laughably bad.

Nokia's representative did not elaborate on exactly what changes the Scandinavian company's maps unit disagreed with.
