Maps App for Windows 8 5

User-friendly and simplistic piece of software that gives you quick access to different maps (earth, hybrid, roadmap, or terrain) and offers detailed driving directions to a location of your own choice
Maps App for Windows 8 is a small software application built specifically for Windows 8 users in order to help them work with a map that includes satellite imagery, get driving directions, as well as perform search operations. The program makes use of the Google Maps API service.

Intuitive looks

You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup that allows you to switch between different viewing modes, namely earth, hybrid, roadmap, or terrain. What’s more, you can zoom in or out of the map in order to examine some locations in detail.

Main features

Maps App for Windows 8 detects your current location and gives you the freedom to work with multiple layers on the map (they can be easily enabled or disabled), such as traffic, photos, weather, transit, or bicycle.

What’s more, you can print maps, look for a user-defined location on the map, get directions from one location to another, as well as make the app avoid highways and tolls when you want to want to view detailed directions. On the downside, the tool is not able to remember your location when you reopen the application, so you need to set it manually.

Performance

Tests have shown that Maps App for Windows 8 carries out a task quickly and displays accurate photos on the map. It is quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

Bottom line

All things considered, Maps App for Windows 8 proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with only a few features for helping you explore maps and get directions to the desired location.
