gMaps hits v1.10 and gets real good

Speaking of Google apps, gMaps (free) and gMaps Pro ($1.99) are fairly popular unofficial Google Maps applications that have been around for awhile. Version 1.10 just hit the Marketplace and as with each version, it keeps getting better and better--so good in fact, we're ready to give it a big thumbs up.

The latest version gets some theme support (uses your accent color), zoom buttons, geo-location info for any object and a few other tidying up features.

We like it for the alternate view to Bing maps, the traffic info (including "follow me" for tracking) and the layers for viewing (street, hybrid, physical, water-overlay, satellite). The ability to "screen shot" the map to send to others is pretty smart and if you're in the city like us, the public transport layer is quite handy for finding that subway.

So if you're looking for one of the best non-official Google Maps out there, here you go. Free version is here in the Marketplace and the $1.99 ad-free version is here.

would be great if you could add the differences between the free and paid version to the article.

Does it include Street View?Does local search work in Europe?Sometimes with WP7 and Bing Map I have the feeling that we are still in the Middle Age.... :( :( :(

Guys, thank you for your review and feedback, let us answer your questions:1. There were differences between free and paid versions, but due to lot of bug fixes in 1.10 we decided to make them identical.In future, paid version will receive new features faster (bugfixes they will receive at same moment)2. Local search works in Europe :)3. There is no streetview yet 4. You can leave your feedback and vote for new features in our uservoice forum: http://is.gd/gMapsToDo
