    New Places with Google Maps

    Has anybody else noticed what the most recent Google Maps update had? I was looking for an app and happened to see this places icon and wondered what it was and how it got there. Then after messing with it I realized it was part of Google Maps.

    An Even Better Way to Find Places Nearby - Official Google Mobile Blog

    There's some pictures of it on Google's Blog for anybody that hasn't updated yet. It's pretty cool, and I'll probably start using it when I'm out and about in St. Louis or something.

    I just got the update and tried it out.... really good. Looks like they added the Google Places Directory app right into maps.

    Love the ability to create & save your own places search too. Nice job by Google!

    Yeah ... I accidentally discovered the Places app, too. I don't remember reading about that in the description, but it certainly is a nice add-on. One thing I found missing was movie theaters, so I added that, checked it, and it worked great.

    This is a great addition to Google maps, I know there are other apps that provide similar sort of stuff, but I've often found them unreliable. So who better than Google?

    This is something I completely overlooked. So glad you pointed it out!
