Google Maps 5.5 for Android released today now made it easier to check in and out of places, rate various locations, and get transit information.
- New check-in and rating buttons
Now when you open a Place page from mobile device, you can check in to places with Google Latitude or submit a rating or review by clicking on two new buttons at the top of the listing.
- Update home and work address for your Latitude Location History
Location History dashboard for Latitude estimates how much time you spend at home, work, and everywhere else. Now if your home or work address changes, or you'd rather set a different address to represent "home" and "work," you can now edit these addresses within Latitude.
- View the redesigned transit station pages
To make it easier to plan your transit route, Google updated the transit station pages in this release to better organize the information you need. Each page now includes a list of upcoming scheduled departures for different lines, all the transit lines serving the station, and links to nearby transit stations.
