Google Maps: Pros and Cons
Transcript of Google Maps: Pros and Cons
Google Maps was created by Jens Eilstrup Rasmussen (Inventor) and Lars Rasmussen (Co-Founder) and it serves as a desktop web mapping service developed by Google, launched February 8, 2005.
I enjoy using the Google Maps app simply because it navigates me to where I want to go in the shortest time possible. It also gives me ratings of different attractions in the city and contact information of businesses, etc. This app definitely meets my expectations. When I don’t know where I’m going in times of travel, I simply click on this app, type in my destination and before I know it, I have arrived. I use this app very frequently and it has not failed me yet.
