A New Google Maps App For Mobile

Today, Google announced a brand new Google maps app for android Smartphones and tablets. Don’t worry, the iPhone version is coming soon as Google knows the native Apple Maps Apps sucks and doesn’t want to leave you iOS users out in the cold. Or end up in a river.

The new app is slowly but surely rolling out worldwide on Google Play.

Apparently the mobile app builds builds on the design Google released for the new Google Maps app for iPhone last December and now improves on it with a few useful search and navigation features. Google describes this app as “a new mapping experience that makes exploring the world and getting to the places that matter to you a lot faster and easier.” An interesting fact: this is the first dedicated app for Android and iPads.
