Hey! Hit the market and grab the update, good down to 1.6, of Google Maps while it’s hot. According to the Google Mobile Blog, it’s got improved Places features including a reviews from around the web and reviews from Google users look that matches what you’d get on a computer. You can narrow down search results with filters for Open now, Neighborhood, distance and ratings.

But that’s not all kids, now in Latitude you can test out Google’s experimental real-time updating of Latitude friends profile pages on the web with your phone so that you can call your buddy, tell him to pull you up on his iGoogle with the Latitude widget and ask him if he can see you move around in a circle without having to refresh the page constantly anymore.
