Google Maps v5.10.0 for Android adds two new Places features
Strengthening their Places feature with Google Maps, a new software update is now available to Android users out there bringing the popular app to version 5.10.0.

Always trying to compete with other services like Foursquare, the Places feature with Google Maps for Android now offer users the ability to see on the map the places they gave 4 or 5 star ratings. Additionally, you’re now able to attach an image to reviews of certain places. Of course, not everyone is going to be filled with joy over the new features, but it’s nevertheless nice to see Google aggressively deepening the app’s functionality to keep up with the competition.

If you haven’t received the notification just yet about it, you can basically download and install the free update through the Android Market right now.

anywho.. question for you miz as you might know.. is there a way to convert apple apps to android.. theres an app i would like to use for work but rather not dish out the cash for a pad or iphone as I am more comfortable with android.

Quit being a cheapwad and buy an iPhone or an iPod Touch. You'll easily have a better phone than anything with Androne on it.

And no, Apple doesn't want to know my location.

So you noticed. He is far from being an apple fan. He is a hatter that probably doesn't even has an iphone or an android phone

I'd say - don't go stingy on research. Find out and realise for yourself that Apple phones are indeed not all that great. You get better for less money. You get more choice. That makes sense, doesn't it?
