A San – press conference reported last week that Nokia’s CEO, Stephen Elop, promised to  release an iOS Map App service within a few weeks.

Today, as promised, Nokia launched an alternative to iOS maps, named Here Maps, which is now available on the iTunes App Store for download. This new cross-platform app is based on HTML 5 and includes features such as offline maps, Step-by-Step voice-guided navigation, saving map for later view, live traffic view, search history, share places on social websites and much more.

The map covers over 200 countries. One of the most interesting feature is the ability to save a specific area of a map for offline view and is useful for places where there is no cellular data coverage of WiFi network.

Here is a full list of the features included:

  • Map views – Pick the map you need from map view, live traffic view, public transport line view or satellite view
  • Save map areas & wander without data coverage
  • In selected countries, access community maps created and updated by users

  • Search with history and suggestions
  • Share places with just a tap, including the location and how to get there, over SMS, email, or social networks
  • Organize places you love into Collections
