Google Maps For Android Update Makes Searching Far Easier

Google's just pushed out a 4.1 update for Google Maps on Android that includes a Latitude home screen widget listing nearby friends, and allowing you to switch between user accounts to change Buzz and starred locations.

Yada, yada — the big change for real Maps users is that after searching for a term and clicking on a result, you can swipe the screen left and right to switch between results. No more zooming and ultra-precise finger tapping to get to just what you're looking for. Simply swipe to the right to head over to the next-nearest result.
