Google Maps is probably one of the most used mobile apps on iOS and Android devices. It provides fast access to a variety of location-based-services, and, in the case of the Android version, provides real-time voice-guided navigation (and for free). Today Google unveiled the web-based version of Google Maps, which works with Android and iOS devices. The browser version lacks many of the features that can be found in the apps (like multi-touch and voice-guided navigation), but it provides an effective way to browse a map while in the browser without having to flip over to the app. Also, let us not forget that not all Android users have Google Maps installed, so the web version will be a welcomed addition to those that don’t have it preinstalled.
