Google Maps 5.2 for Android adds new features and targets Foursquare and Facebook Places
Now, when you’re rating your dinner spot using Google Maps for Android, you can share your review with even more people by posting it to Twitter. When rating on the go using our rating widget, just choose to Post review to Twitter and connect your Twitter account.
Starting last month, you could share information about the place you were at, in addition to your location, by checking in at places using Google Latitude. Starting today, if you see nearby Latitude friends on the map and want to ask them where they are, you can quickly “ping” them instead of having to text or call. They’ll receive an Android notification from you asking them to check in at a place. And when they check in using your request, you’ll get a notification right back. Both Latitude friends need version 5.2 in order to use the new “ping” feature.
