Google Maps was updated in the Android Market today and among the more notable changes was the addition of “live events” to the Places page. Android users in New York, San Francisco, Paris, Zurich and London will be the first to enjoy this new feature that gives you real-time listings of events in your city. This will be great for bored folks or frequent travelers.
Maps also lost a “feature” with the removal of the “Post to Twitter” option when a user writes a review in Places (no doubt soon-to-be replaced by “Post to Google+). Oh, and you may have noticed that Latitude received a spiffy new icon in your app drawer, replacing the old Donut looking version of yester-version. Jump on the Market and get to updating!
