Very much in need of improvement. Not sure why Google is introducing this web-based version of their Maps app, but it is nowhere close to Google Maps. The application launches from web links into a browser but it calculates distances and destinations incorrectly. It is the antithesis of Google maps in being user-friendly. It's what Google maps would have been had it been around in 1999. I will be uninstalling it ASAP so it stops launching in place of the real Google Maps.

Google Maps has seriously changed my life. I'm slightly directionally challenged, and having this app gets me where I need to go, when I need to be there. I'm constantly changing modes of transportation, and I'm able to get a really accurate time frame for each of them. Having the Tarc schedule with different bus options is a life saver. Love this app!

Functions well enough, but there's no way to sign out of your Google account like there is on regular Maps. There's an option to temporarily switch to the browser incognito mode, but it will quietly switch itself back out as soon as you change any other setting (showing the traffic map, for example). It's very low memory and featureful, but this is not privacy friendly.
