Here Maps provides an alternative to Apple and Google navigation apps, and the iOS version of the software just got a lot more useful. First, tapping on a place icon on a map will bring up detailed information like hours, contact details and more. It's similar to what what you'd see in Google's app. There's also a new shortcut tool that offers quick access to Here Maps features. If you tap and hold on any place, options for directions, navigation, sharing the destination and saving it for later all pop up.

When you input your home address, there's a handy button in the top right corner to get you back with ease. In other words, having Here navigate you back to your humble abode is as simple as a tap. The app now plays nice with 3D Touch too, which puts those directions back home a long press away with the Here Maps icon on your home screen. If you're looking to give it a go, the new version of the app is available now.
