In the era of new technologies, many meaningful and worthy innovations are arising; the story is the same with Google Maps App for your smartphone, phablet or tablet.
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.
Google Maps and their new features
With the new designed Google Maps for Android tablets, iPads and iPhones you can hold the entire world in your hands. Although it is very simple to use, it offers many features that will ease everyone’s trip no matter how far are they willing to go.

If you have doubts how to get to one special place, you can enter the name of the place, and Google Maps will provide you with information such as, how to get to that particular place. If there are any photos or reviews of the precise place, Google Maps will enable you to scroll through them.

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.
