Wednesday, July 22, was a good day. Although I just discovered this now, on that day Google released Google Maps for Mobile version 3.2. The new release adds “layers of fun” to the application. In other words, you can now show or hide layers which contain information on search results, My Maps, Transit and points of interest from Wikipedia. How cool is that!?
When I went to Dublin last year I created a My Maps of places of interest. At that time I printed the map out and labeled the points of interest by hand because that was the only way to take it with me. Ever since then, I’ve been waiting for Google to put My Maps on cell phones. I’ve even gone onto the Google product ideas site to vote for it. Now, not only do we get My Maps integration but more goodies as well. The Wikipedia feature is a great idea. Bravo!
