Ask.com Maps and Directions allows users to search and get directions in any city really quickly.

      Category: Reference

      Ask.com may not be the No. 1 search engine out there, but it's been doing some interesting things with new Web technologies, including its mapping services. Ask.com Maps and Directions allows users to search and get directions in any city really quickly. What separates it from some other directions services is its capability to give you directions for both driving and walking. It works mostly for short hauls (obviously) and gives you turn-by-turn directions for getting around city blocks on foot. If you've ever been following a road map in the city and come across a thoroughfare that wasn't pedestrian friendly, you'll see the value here.
