Notice any changes in Google Maps lately? Place Pages is a service that combined street view images with reviews and hours of operation for various destinations. You can even access these features right from your Android handsets browser. This service will help you and your friends pick the right place to dine or visit.
I tried this out earlier and when you click on a place all sorts of information about it pops up. The pages are beautifully rendered to fit your mobile device. This takes a little more work to do then the Places directory app but it seems to be more useful. Try it out and see how you like it.
