Google Maps 5.5 for Android Adds Check-in and Rating Feature
The updated Google Maps 5.5 for Android now lets you check in to places using Google Latitude when you open a Place page from your mobile device. The new feature also lets you submit a rating for a place either right after you’ve checked-in or later on when you open Latitude again. Two new buttons for check-in and ratings submission were added at the top of the Place page listing.
Google Maps for Android also lets you update your home and work address for your Latitude Location History. If you will recall, Google released the Location History Dashboard last month. This lets you estimate how much time you spend at home, workd and everywhere else. Now, you can edit these addresses within Latitude.
Finally, the app also now has the transit station pages-making it easier to plan your transit route using Google Maps.
