Default New Google Maps 5.3: Now With Location History And Check-ins For Homebodies

"Today, we're happy to announce Google Maps 5.3 for Android, which lets you see your Google Location History dashboard, check in at "home," and add your own aspects for places when rating them."

Google just keeps the cool features coming. The latest update to Google Maps for Android adds the ability to view your location history much like on the "Dashboard" view you get on your desktop. Another super welcome feature is the ability to check-in at home. Something I've personally missed. I can do it on Facebook... but I don't like Facebook. They've also added the ability for you to add custom fields to your reviews when rating places on.. well.. Places. Not sure I'll use this last option much but it's nice to have if say some place has really awesome salsa and I want to let everyone know. If you haven't already fire up the Market and get your update!
