Default Web Version of Google Maps for iOS and Android Now Available

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/05/20/google.maps.gets.ios.and.android.web.version/' target='_blank'>http://www.electronista.com/article...id.web.version/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Google wrapped up on Friday with a long-requested version of Google Maps for smartphones. Both Android and iOS users can both track their individual location with the usual Google Maps layers, such as satellite maps and traffic, as well as get directions. Place pages have their own optimizations and tie in properly with the map."</em></p><p><img height="346" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1305951146.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 50px; margin-right: 50px;" width="500" /></p><p>This was released Friday and works anywhere Google Maps exists. On top of that, the one big advantage is the continual updating you get from web versions over apps, which require updates from either Apple or Google. Sign-on to Google and you get access to all your favorite locations, saved maps and landmarks.&nbsp;</p>
