Google Maps is Back on App Store

Lost without directions.

Afraid of the iOS 6 upgrade because you love Google Maps? Well the waiting is over, and Google Maps is back on the App Store for Free!

Not only is it still free, they upgraded the App to included all the latest features from the current Android version:

  • Turn-by-turn driving instructions
  • Live traffic information
  • Train, bus, subway and walking directions
  • Transit schedules for nearby stops

Which, when you compare the newer, fresher UI integration of the latest iPhone App vs. Android, makes the iPhone version ‘slightly better’ than the current Android version!

On top of all that, Google’s new Maps App adds API support for using the Maps App in other applications so that developers have the option of integrating Google maps into their Apps.

Google also mentioned that indoor maps support, and an offline maps option are currently in the works.

Stay tuned!

Google is also making certain things harder to find..

I cannot lie, Zazzle.com has some funny T-Shirts.

In other news, Google Image search just got an update that makes finding porn images more difficult, or at the very least, less accidental.

A young asian.

Personally, when I am at work, say making a blog post that needs an image of cigarette ‘butts‘, or a ‘young asian‘ person, when I don’t include enough search terms, I can appreciate that Google puts less priority on the more abundantly available/popular pornographic images.

… at least for the .COM site.

If you load those URLs and change the .com to a .ca?

Well lets just say that I hope you aren’t at work! ;)
