App update Google Maps
Google have pushed out a new UI to the super Google Maps app. It looks a lot cleaner and feels easier to get around.
It isn't all about looking good though. Functionality is key and one particular new feature is when swiping up when looking at the new bigger map when you've selected destination and transport method you get not only a list of when you need to take a left but anything important such as accidents or info such as private roads.
Each mode of transport now shows you how long it will take to get you from A to B. Swiping from left to right at the bottom of maps allows you to change your mode. You may notice that some destinations may automatically have a route chosen as per the cycle route below or did that already happen?
It all looks very nice and certainly feels much better when working around the app. Although it may not have it your notification bar as being ready on Google Play but Android Police have the apk file available here
The new popular times option shows you how busy Lidl is at any given hour on a particular day. You can swipe through the days or choose from the drop down menu. Whenever you go it's that wait at the checkout that kills the whole experience.
APK Mirror have the apk file as it may not have landed on Google Play for you just yet. Get that here - http://goo.gl/WBw9aa
