I downloaded this today too, really nice and works, I could even find my house
I have been using the beta verion of google maps for about a year on the PC, I use it for all my maps.
I was wondering how this app differed from just going directly to www.maps.google.com
, so I tried that too. The google site is definitely slower, although is what I am more use to, but really slow, I think because it builds so much more map that you can actually see to support the grab and drag functionality.
I think this will be a keeper
ps. thanks for the tip on scrolling sideways, I was getting tried turning it 90 degrees and laying on my side....
