Figure 12-8. Saving a location in My Maps Editor

All your maps will be available in the "My maps" layer, but only maps you've made public will be visible to other people or available in search.

Location-Sensing Social Media and Games

We've focused a lot in this chapter on Google Maps specifically. App developers are free to take advantage of the Google Maps library and Android's location-sensing features. There are countless restaurant-browsing and rating apps, many apps for finding specific services, and apps that tag photos or messages with your location.

However, one recent trend worth noting is location-sensitive social media. Latitude and Buzz use some of these features, and Twitter has enabled the ability to give location information, but two rising stars in this field are Gowalla (Figure 12-9) and Foursquare. Both were created around the same time and offer very similar features.
