While we were able to get our hands on an advance release of Nokia's new Here Maps app for Android, the company had to a make a few minor tweaks before it was ready for public consumption. It appears all of those outstanding boxes have now been ticked, because the app has just gone live on Samsung's Galaxy app store. Unfortunately, thanks to Samsung's considerable marketing muscle, the app currently only offers Galaxy device owners access to its offline maps, turn-by-turn navigation and transit features. That means you'll have to wait a little longer to grab the app (or until an enterprising developer extends its availability) if you own a non-Samsung device. However, if you're looking for a very accomplished alternative to Google Maps, it's definitely worth being a little more patient.
