Google releases new Maps API for Android developers

Google today announced an update to the Google Maps API which gives developers a better, more comprehensive set of tools to integrate maps into Android apps.  It will be easier than ever to insert vector-based maps into applications, according to Google. Launching today as part of Google Play services v2.0, this is Google’s way of allowing for more simple and agile access to Google products within Android apps.
