Google Maps is easily my favorite mobile app. It goes far beyond the functionality of the Google Maps you know from the website. It's GPS enabled (as well as coarse network-based location), so you can see right where you are down to a few meters. Layers give you the ability to see the map with satellite imagery, traffic flow/congestion, terrain, public transit lines, and more. It also has a "places directory" that will give you listings of nearby restaurants, bars, gas stations, etc, complete with ratings and reviews. My favorite feature however, is Google Navigation which comes with it. You can launch it from within the main Google Maps app, or from its own app icon. It's a fully featured GPS navigator that gives turn-by-turn voice directions (or a list if you prefer) to your destination, and can navigate both driving, and walking routes. You can speak your destination, type it in, pick it out of your contacts, "Star" places for future trips, or even make a shortcut icon on your homescreen for one-click navigation. You can even set it to avoid highways or tolls when calculating your route. Even if you don't use it all the time, you'll be glad it's there when you need it. The best feature of all, however, is that it's free!

I agree, I think that all of the Google apps are finished to a high quality. I love Google earth, I just like checking out all the houses around mine and generally being nosey.

I agree, Google Maps is fabulous; I use it every day in my commute; especially for traffic notifications. I change my route and save a lot of time just with this feature. But...I recently updated my google aps on my HTC Incredible. The orientation of the map as I drive is no longer adjusting with the heading I'm on. That is: previously, the map and the direction I was heading was oriented straight up. The streets that I passed on the left and right, were oriented the same on the phone. After the update the map no longer adjusts to the direction I am heading. Instead the map remains in a north south orientation and the direction I'm heading is simply displayed on the map....not so user friendly. I compared to Magellan and Tom Tom; these GPS devices (competitors?) use the old way that I liked. Anybody else notice this change?

TuneIn Radio is a great app - it lets you listen to radio stations all over the world! I love it :) Also, Shazam - if you hear a song and don't know who sings it, it can tell you the name of the song and the artist! Pretty awesome I think!
