Google has released a new application for Android called My Maps Editor, enabling users to personalize their Google Maps experience.
From the official blog post:
With this application you can create, edit, share, and view personalized maps on your Android powered phone synchronized with the My Maps tab on Google Maps. Create a map on your desktop computer using Google Maps and then take it with you on the go and update it on location. My Maps Editor by Google supports full editing functionality for markers, lines, and shapes on maps, plus the ability to mark your location using GPS or attach a photo directly from your phone. Your maps are automatically synchronized with your My Maps on the web.
On one side, the idea seems to be to allow users to plan their trips, and on the other, to make map notes out of their travels. That being said, they suggest My Maps Editor could be used for such things as planning holiday shopping, making a map of holiday decorations and displays that you see, and/or keeping track of your travels…
Sounds cool, there’s no doubt about it. Just search for it in Android Market on your T-Mobile G1 and try it out for yourself.
