Maps Measure is a simple app for measuring distances and areas in Google Maps

So now people will have to build separate apps for features that once were included inside older Google Maps versions?
I really hated google for downgrading Maps like they did...
Are we going to see an "Offline Maps Manager" app or something?

If google puts all the features, it will eat your space, CPU, RAM, etc.

In earlier versions, those features were only activated when accessed through LABS... so there wasn't any CPU or RAM wasted for people who didn't know or didn't use
In the end it takes more resources, space, RAM to download separate apps, instead of having one with multiple functionality. That is why I usually don't duplicate the functions found on my stock phone (unless the included app is garbage)...
ANYWAY I still downloaded Map Measure... Thanks PA it is very good. I was missing this feature.

I love google maps because they are data efficient, quite the opposite in case of chrome.

I agree with you here... Most of the time I use Web Small App for browsing...unless I need multiple tabs, then I use Chrome... but it is such a RAM hog... Most of the time it uses over 100MB for EACH tab opened
