With hundreds of millions of users all over the world, Google Maps is easily one of the most widely used mobile apps on the planet. As the company did with Gmail, Google completely changed an industry by disrupting it with free mapping and voice-guided navigation. And we’re not talking “disrupt” as in the meaningless startup buzzword. We’re talking “disrupt” as in Google changed the game and toppled industry leaders in the process.
But as expected, Google isn’t satisfied with simply changing the game. Instead, the company continues to improve Google Maps while rivals chase at its heels. And on Tuesday, Google released another new update for the iPhone and iPad version of its popular Google Maps app.
