HERE WeGo maps now available for download on Huawei AppGallery
Huawei is hard at work, creating an app ecosystem to rival that of the Google Play Store. Convincing users to make the switch to a relatively unknown platform is an arduous task. That is why Huawei is counting on existing developers to host their apps on AppGallery.
The Chinese telecommunication behemoth has now partnered with German firm HERE to bring its navigation map to AppGallery. The application is called HERE WeGo, and it is officially available for download on Huawei's AppGallery.
HERE WeGo has been around much longer than Google Maps. During its nearly thirteen-year-old stint, it has witnessed a slew of ownership (and name) changes. It is undoubtedly one of the best Google Maps alternatives, as it has a wealth of information about public transport, turn-by-turn directions, and offline map data of over 1600 cities. HERE WeGo is also available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store if you want to try it out.
Some time ago, Huawei had partnered with a Dutch company called TomTom maps for its navigation data. Huawei is likely to use the TomTom Maps data for its in-house navigation software. We should see a lot more such partnerships emerge in the coming months as a part of Huawei's broader push towards expanding AppGallery.
