Yesterday I mentioned the release of the Google Maps SDK for iOS that allows you to bring Google Maps into your iOS apps.

You can also use a URL scheme and here’s an unofficial library called Google Maps Kit from Fawkes Wei that you can use to check if the Google Maps app is installed and pass parameters through to the Google Maps app through supplied methods.

Here’s an example from the readme:

[GoogleMapsKit showMapWithSearchKeyword:@"Starbucks"
                             withCenter:CLLocationCoordinate2DMake(25.0, 121.5)
                                   zoom:15
                                mapMode:GoogleMapsModeDefault
                                   view:GoogleMapsViewTraffic];

You can find GoogleMapsKit on Github here.

You can read about how to use the Google Maps URL scheme on the Maps SDK documentation page here.

A nice simple way to use the Google Maps URL Scheme.
