Speaking of ratings, you can quickly search for reviews of restaurants and other fun places in a city.
Street View now has a new interface.
You can also quickly find a landmark by typing its name.
3D flyby mode is now supported.
Tilt the mobile device to change the perspective.

Now you can view public transit schedules...
...as well as see when the next bus or train will arrive.
Maps now also include bike lanes for cyclists.
Maps is now integrated with Google Earth...
...to offer a complete view of the planet in a single user interface.
