Google is the sultan of search and the master of maps. To ensure it keeps its number one position in maps, it released a completely refreshed maps interface for Android devices a couple of days ago.
If you are on an IOS device, you'll have to wait just a little bit longer. What's new? A clean new location browsing interface which makes it easier and more visually appealing to find restaurants, retail stores and more.
The new version will also bring a WAZE-like traffic condition identification and rerouting system. The new Google Maps for IOS will require IOS 6 (which over 95% of all IOS users have so this shouldn't be an issue).
The New Google Maps brings a tablet optimized version.
