Google has announced yet another update for its Maps service which enables easier check in and rating of places. Google Places is a service in which users can access Google Maps to find out information about a particular place or places near them.
The new Google Maps 5.5 allow users to get one touch access to check in and rating the place in Google places with up to 5 star rating.
The location history database, which was added to the Google latitude check in sometime back, has also been improved. Also included in the history dashboard are buttons that allows users to quickly change their office and home location with just a single touch.
Users can update the Google Maps application on their Android powered device to 5.5 directly by visiting the Android marketplace from the device or alternatively they can also click here to do the same.
