Big gMaps update brings driving mode, Simple Latitude integration and more
Unofficial Google Maps app for Windows Phone, gMaps, has received its first big update in a while. The latest update pushes gMaps up to version 3.2 and brings some great additions to the Google Maps alternative.
First up is the addition of integration with one of gMaps other apps, Simple Latitude. The team says that if you're using Simple Latitude, you can now simply log in to gMaps and see your friends and family right on the map. Those who haven't signed up for a Simple Latitude account can register an account from within gMaps and start using the service right away.
Next up is a new driving mode, allowing users to plot routes and head off to any location with built-in navigation. And finally, gMaps has tweaked the interface to improve the user experience with things like full-screen maps (hide controls by tapping once), a single page to view in-app purchases, and the ability to sync your purchases when you switch Microsoft accounts.
If you're interested in checking out gMaps 3.2, hit up the Windows Store link below. And be sure to check out the source link to read the full blog post on this update.

Yes! The company that wouldn't be shit if it weren't for MS... The company that Founded it's services on PC, but doesn't have the respect to pay it back to MS with their apps... That's literally called "scavenging".... SMDH
And how MS handled several small companies in history which had competitive products? They either provided small amount of money or sued them, so small companies ran out of money. And what happened to Netscape?
You really should read the history of MS better before talking abaut respect. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
