google maps 5.3

The new version of Google Maps for Android looks awesome to put it simply. The new features they’ve bundled in are definitely setting this mapping app apart from any other that may be offered on the market, but hey, it’s made by Google right? It should be better.

Google states regarding the new features listed below “If you’ve enabled Location History for Google Latitude, you’ve been able to visualize interesting trends in your location history with a personal dashboard at google.com/latitude on your computer, now, you can also see your dashboard on your phone by tapping View location history from your Latitude profile.”

What’s in this version:

  • See your Location History dashboard if you’ve enabled Location History for Latitude
  • Check in at “Home” after setting a home location in Latitude
  • Add your own aspects (e.g. service, music) about places when rating them
