MapQuest today announced a new browser-based version of its mobile mapping service that is accessible from Android smartphones and the iPhone. Using HTML5, MapQuest was able to take advantage of touch, display, and GPS capabilities through the Android and Safari browsers and provide as much functionality as is found in native mapping apps. The MapQuest web app can determine the users' location; find points of interest and user reviews; provide driving and walking directions with landmarks; and has simple controls for toggling on/off satellite views, traffic, and location data. The web app is available starting today and is free to use.
