Google Maps Update Adds Contacts, Local Attractions

image

Earlier this week Google released its first major update to Google Maps (free),with new features including integration with Google Contacts. So now, if you’re navigating to the address of someone in your contact list, Google will retrieve the address from your contacts, eliminating the need to manually enter the person’s address. And as CNET points out, the contact information doesn't necessarily need to be stored on your phone; it just needs to be stored in Google's system.

Which is best, Google Maps or Apple Maps? Apple wins at offline viewing

I really like the ability to simply ask Siri for directions rather than typing in a destination, so I tend to use Apple's Maps app over Google Maps. But both are excellent. I want to point you to a couple detailed reviews, in case you're wondering which app you should favor, and also want to note the ability of Apple's Maps app to cache large areas of data, so that you can use the app even if you don't have an Internet connection.

Google Maps arrives: voice turn-by-turn directions, transit directions, vector graphics

image

What a nice Christmas present. As my fellow blogger James Rhodes noted, Google Maps (free) arrived late yesterday and has the best of everything. It includes crucial features missing in Apple's original app based on Google's technology, and it includes features missing in Apple's new Maps app that arrived with iOS 6. Unlike the earlier version, it now has voice-guided turn-by-turn directions and vector graphics. The latter means that the maps are created on-the-fly mathematically instead of using images.
