New release of Google Maps for Mobile
Google have just released a new version of their Google Maps for Mobile product and its got a feature that I’ve been yearning after for a very very long time, namely the ability to sync information that you capture from their website onto your mobile phone. It is best explained in their own words:
Google Maps for mobile has long allowed you to add stars on a map to mark your favorite places. Unfortunately, there was no way to keep these starred places in sync with Google Maps on your phone. With today’s release of Google Maps for mobile 3.3 on Windows Mobile and Symbian phones, you’ll now be able to keep the starred places on your phone and on your computer completely synchronized
Fantastic feature! If you have a Windows or Symbian Phone go and grab it from http://www.google.com/mobile/products/maps.html#p=default
So, Google keep innovating with their mobile maps product and continue to leave Microsoft eating their dirt. How telling it is that in the week where Google release my most requested feature for their mobile mapping product Microsoft release a version of Bing for Mobile that they claim is now freely available (see: http://discoverbing.com/mobile/) but actually is not. I’ve tried following their download instructions but each time I get the old version, not the new one.
Never mind, at least Google know how to build and deliver a decent product.
