Google Maps, the online service that allows users to view satellite maps straight from a web-based interface, received a new update to improve the quality of the information concerning certain locations. As you know, every time you clicked on a Google Maps marker, the service opened a balloon notification message that offered information about a certain location and provided quick access to pictures, reviews and users' comments. This feature was now improved, Google Maps offering a separate text view that brings even more details about a marker.

Blogger Ionut Alex discovered this new function
and, as you can see in the picture attached to the article, it minimizes the map and opens a new screen displaying the information. Among numerous links for reviews and users' opinions, the "Text View" feature also publishes directions to reach the location on Google Maps and obviously in reality, too.
