10 mil in 2 days!
 
More than 10 million downloads in less than 48 hours after release! 

We're excited for the positive reception of Google Maps for iPhone around the world. Congratulations to the Maps Team on the recognition for the passion and hard work they poured into it, for this release and over the last 7+ years.

If you're an iPhone user and haven't downloaded the Maps app yet, get it on the App Store or visit: https://itunes.apple.com/app/id585027354?mt=8.

If you already have it -- thank you, and please tell a friend.  Any feedback you have is welcomed, here in G+ or in the app (just shake it).

Google I/O 2013 app now available
 
The #IO13 #Android app is now available for download on Google Play!

It supports devices running Android 2.3+, and is optimized for phones and tablets of all shapes and sizes.

Install it now to view the conference agenda and create your own schedule,  View detailed session, code lab, office hours, and speaker information.

Once I/O starts you'll also be able to guide yourself using the vector-based conference map, get session start reminders, keep up with announcements from the I/O team during the conference, and play live session video streams on your Android 3.0+ devices!

Stay tuned for more details on how we implemented these (and more) features, when we open source the app a few weeks after the conference.

For now, enjoy, and hope to see you at #io13!

Google+ grows to become 2nd largest social platform globally

Wow, that was quick! Like I had said before it was only a matter of time! It's also interesting to note the decline in Chinese based social media sites...

Google+, who despite being branded a failure or ghost town by large portions of the media, grew in terms of active usage by 27% to 343m users to become the number 2 social platform. Interestingly for Google, YouTube (not previously tracked by us as a social platform) comes in at number 3, demonstrating the immense opportunity of linking Google’s services through the G+ social layer. This is also a key indication of why Google+ integrated with the Google product set is so key to the future of search and the internet. We’ve got more coming on Google+ later this week as well.
