Google may be buys with the upcoming launch of Android Gingerbread 2.3, but it still finds time to update and enhance its services.
For example, Google Maps for Android has now reached version 4.7 (about two weeks after version 4.6 was released).
The new version of Maps for Android comes with Hotpot, Google’s latest “local recommendation engine that helps you discover places you’ll love based on opinions from you and your friends.” You can read more about it here at the Official Google Mobile blog.
Google Maps 4.7 should work on any smartphone with Android 1.6 (or higher) and is available now via Android Market.
Google Shopper for Android has also been updated, reaching version 1.3. It now features new search filters (including “brand” and “price”), allowing you to refine your searches. More info here. Google Shopper 1.3 is free and can be downloaded via Android Market.
