New Google Maps Android App Brings Enhanced Navigation, Reviews and Explore Features

New Google Maps Android App Brings Enhanced Navigation, Reviews and Explore Features

The new Google Maps are meant to be used on Android. Besides finding locations they are more than latitude and longitude facilitators. The features they include in their purview include a series of restaurant reviews from Zagat which pinpoint Yelp. Your commentary in this regard is most welcome too. An entirely novel touch-based system of designating locations without the use of text or speech is available. There are five basic compartments: Eat, Shop, Drink, Play and Sleep. These are in relation to restaurants, shops, hotels and other paraphernalia. Even feedback regarding any malfunctions is accepted at Google. This new app is quite a sensation at the Google I/O in 2013.

There is traffic-related news that is relayed to drivers via the Mapping Service. This of course sounds a lot like the Israel-based Waze. Many of Waze’s features will in fact be incorporated into Google Maps. Google’s new version has more tweaked items and services in its vast menu. Besides updates on any traffic incidents there will be detour details too. This mapping info ability gives users their money’s worth in the blink of an eye. It is essentially for drivers and tourists who want to get the most out of their forays into the Great Outdoors. Especially extroverted people with a passion for travel and the good life will find this latest Google outdoor description location device a boon and a blessing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
