I use it to look at the backyards of the neighbours houses. 3D view lets me see from all angles. Thanks Google!

I have always used Google Maps because its the ultimate mapping service that has street views, satellite views, shows the traffic on the roads, give route options and also gives public transport information and timings. Also save maps offline.

An example of how to NOT make a map software.

  • Messed up categories
  • Completely broken search (I just don't know what it does right - it never gave me complete and sensible result in ~10 years and 5 countries)
  • Dumb choice of objects on different zooms (random shop or venue is more important than metro station somehow...)
  • Terrible rendering hiding actually important details on sensible zooms
  • Missing essential features (like you just cannot save a point on the map, and dozens others)
  • Hundreds of other completely unforced problems

i both like and hate it, google maps has the best map if you want to go somewhere fast but lacks the ability to let you do custom maps.

Not the best platform to publish in-depth reviews but users can share some updates between each other...

Not sure why Google Maps is shown as "freemium", never got a "subcribe now" windows then i was planning routes or getting realtime infos about an accident and alternative routes. For me 5/5 and definately not "freemium" but free. Just use it, no restrictions (AFAIK)
