After its Search Engine, Maps has been the most useful feature offered by Google to the world for the last decade.
Get lost? just open Maps on your phone to locate yourself and find the fastest way to get where you want... Every website uses it to pinpoint their offices or shop locations etc..

But so far, Google Maps was only accessible on the "public web" or through complex API programming if you wanted to customize your maps.
