Remember we used to rely faithfully on Google Maps to find our way around, then it disappeared from the recent iOS? Personally, I never had problems with this navigation app, but many others did. Consequently, the app has been revamped and newly placed again on the App Store. This new Google Maps has been working very well for most folks. I'm a firm believer in Google products and have promptly placed the app back on my phone.

Google Maps will help you find your way around town and out of town too, has voice navigation with turn-by-turn directions, street view and other helpful features. Not only that, but you can also use it to discover restaurants, shopping other entertainment and other important places. The 360 degree panorama view is really a nice touch. Enjoy the following informative, helpful features of this Google Maps navigation, turn-by-turn app:

* Find addresses, places and businesses around the world with Google local search.
* Discover places to eat, drink, shop and play, with ratings and local reviews.
* Sign in to sync your searches, directions, and favorite places between your computer and your phone.

* Get voice guided, turn-by-turn driving directions.
* Find your way by train, bus, subway or walking directions.
* Access live traffic information in cities across the world.

Go ahead and check out this fresh new take on Google maps. Enjoy a clean looking and easy-to-use interface. There are definitely more features than in the previous app, and as mentioned, the turn-by-turn voice directions are new and a huge bonus! The map is simple to use, but contains a few not easily noticeable features. For starters, just tap on the icon with two arrows in the bottom left of your display while in street view to pan around the location. Another cool feature is being able to see the special menu that toggles traffic, public transit, and satellite map views by swiping from right to left with two fingers.

Give Google Maps a prominent place on your display, and make sure you get to all your holiday parties and festivities on time using excellent directions!
