Google Maps on smartphones


Of course we all remember a time when there were no Google Maps service app, neither for desktops, nor for mobile phones.

Whenever we would visit some foreign country or residence we would have a big paper map with us. And yes, it was sometimes difficult to drive and in the same time to hold a map in our hands, but as time changes and people are living fast, so did change the ways of searching for that particular place.

What we liked about Google Maps is that you get to create a map yourself, in other words, you get to customize the maps by presenting some small town that was not marked on the map and by adding sights and interesting facts about that town.

    I never intended to use Google Maps, but my girlfriend wanted us to visit a good spicy restaurant in Virginia, and I did not have a clue where to find one! So I activated my Google Maps App, and in a blink of an eye a had at least 10 restaurants in the area…That surely made her happier 🙂 I am using it ever since…even added my own reviews 🙂
