I’m a pretty big fan of the new version of Google Maps.

I’ve been using it for about a week now, and I think it’s great. It looks really nice, is fast as hell on my phone (Galaxy Nexus), and has some cool features that make me want to use it more than Apple Maps or Nokia Drive. Here are some highlights:

The UI is much cleaner than before, with fewer buttons cluttering up the screen at any given time. The map itself has also been cleaned up quite a bit; everything from labels to icons have been simplified in an effort to reduce clutter while still providing useful information about your surroundings
