Google Maps:  Download

Google announced on a Maps blog post, that the revamp brings a whole new look to the mapping app. Google explained that the driving principle behind the new design decisions was to make it easier to use, and discover, certain features.
Google said: “This new look is all about creating surfaces and shadows that echo the real world; with Google Maps’ new material feel, layers and buttons come to life so you know just where to touch to get directions, recommendations and imagery.” Deeper OpenTable integration isn’t the only functionality update either.
The new Google Maps app will also now show you the estimated pickup time and price for an Uber journey, versus the same journey by public transport. You’ll need to have the Uber app installed for this option to appear though.
