Navigating to maps.google.com
Pressing the Share button (Google have added a notice now)

So I just read that Google Maps for iOS 6 is nearing the approval stage according to sources close to the matter. Google has already apparently been giving beta test copies out to people outside of the Google.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal the source confirmed that Google has in fact been working on a replacement for both Google Maps and and a big update for YouTube on iPhone and iPad.
It would seem however as though Google are indeed nearly ready to file their replacement to Apple for approval which would then mean waiting to see if Apple would indeed approve such a direct competitor to their own maps service.
