Google Maps Gets Customized Location Icons!

Google Maps has just launched the ability to tag your favorite locations with themed icons. Previously, everything was stars. Stars for work, stars for home, stars for your favorite bowling alley, etc.  Now you can make your Maps really feel like your own, and isn’t that really what the Android experience is all about?

One of the goals of this update is to make locations more visually distinct at a glance, which makes selecting location to navigate to much safer when you’re on the go. Whether or not you use it for that purpose is up to you, but either way you’re sure to have a more colorful and personalized experience with Google Maps going forward.
