Cheaper Google Maps API

Thor Mitchell:

While the Maps API remains free for the vast majority of sites, some developers were worried about the potential costs. In response, we have lowered the online price from US $4 per 1,000 map loads to 50¢ per 1,000 map loads.

With iOS 6 removing the transit features from Apple’s built-in Maps app, I’m hoping that we’ll see some third-party apps (or an official Google one) that use Google’s maps and data.
