Users can also enjoy interactive social navigation features like Add/Edit a place, write review and maintain their private atlas. These are linked to popular social media apps like Explore, Facebook etc. The updates will be immediately made live on the social platforms, as integrated by the user.
The flat UI (User Interface) enables speedier access and seamless zooming in and out of the maps. Users can quickly survey any location with the desired level of intensity. The close integration of search with visual feedback allows for instant location of POIs. For easier customization of routes the drag and drop direction makers feature has been provided. The search for POIs has been simplified through categorization and single- click search facility. Bloggers and developers will also be immensely benefited. The new portal allows for hassle-free embedding of maps, driving directions and search nearby onto their websites/bogs.
