Title

Test on Device for Google Maps or Apple Maps

Post

     I have a solution that works really well to open a google map on an iOS device (using the native app) and plot directions from the current GPS location to a specified address in Filemaker.

     It got me thinking after reading this article: http://bgr.com/2013/11/11/apple-maps-ios-market-share/ That perhaps it would be wise to test to see if there is, in fact, google maps on the device, and if not, default to Apple Maps. 

     Is there a way to test for the presence of an app using Filemaker GO? anyone have any thoughts on a workaround for the problem?
