Google today announced that it has revised Google Maps to version 6.5. Google says that it has redesigned the Google Maps home page (for devices running Android 4.0) and made it easier to access user favorites by swiping left or right. The new version for all Android variants is optimized to take advantage of the higher resolution screens of select devices, and will render sharper, clearer maps. Google Maps 6.5 for Android also lets users select their preferred methods or routes of travel, such as public transportation. Google Maps for Android is a free download from the Google Play Store.
