Google's My Maps for Android hasn't received a lot of affection lately, but the company is making up for that in style. It quietly released a big upgrade to the custom mapping app that, on top of a "new look and feel," throws in features that arguably should have been there ages ago. You can see Street View imagery for all your map points, to start with -- you'll know what your destinations look like on the ground without having to jump to Google Maps. You can also see photos and videos that were added on the web, and the app should be much faster as a whole. Give it a spin if you're planning a big trip, or just want to document your favorite haunts.
