here maps

Nokia plans to bring its HERE maps app to more Android devices by the end of 2014, according to the Wall Street Journal. This news comes a few days after Nokia announced plans to launch HERE maps for Samsung's Android smartphones and Tizen watches.

Nokia wants to make HERE maps a major competitor to Google Maps, according to company executive Sean Fernback. He stated, "I'm convinced people are looking for alternatives. Google Maps is a good solution for many, their maps work very well, but it has looked the same and done the same for a long time."

The HERE apps will allow users to download maps for offline use, along with being able to search without the need for an Internet connection. What do you think of HERE maps coming to more Android devices?
