Google Maps new version 4.2 for BlackBerry.

For those of you who own BlackBerry phones, here is a new Google Maps free app that is super.

I use it on my BlackBerry and it works really well. If you want to download this app directly to your phone, just go to:

Once there, just click on the button "send to phone".

This opens a box where you enter your BlackBerry phone # and the app will be auto downloaded to it. It is that easy!

This updated app now offers what Google calls a "simplified search results page." This gives you images along with one-touch access to directions, phone dialing, and other users' ratings for the location you're trying to find.

Perhaps more noteworthy, though, is the link you'll now see entitled "Share This Place." After finding a destination, you can simply tap that link to fire off a packet of info -- the building's address, phone number, even a photo of its exterior -- to your friends or colleagues. You can choose to use either e-mail or text messaging.

Have fun with it!
