Google Maps gets another cool new feature that has nothing to do with navigation

Google Maps is one of the most used mobile and desktop apps around but not all of its awesome features are necessarily meant to prevent you from getting lost in a strange city. For example, Google recently unveiled a new Maps feature called the Project Sunroof initiative that uses Google Maps data to help you determine if you should invest for solar panels for your house. And now it looks like Google may have yet another new Maps feature that has little to do with step-by-step navigation.

Google is finally solving Android’s bloatware problem

If there’s one thing Android and iPhone users have in common, it’s their mutual hatred of bloatware. There’s just something inherently frustrating about getting a new device and seeing pre-loaded applications that you have no use for and, even worse, can’t get rid of.
