On the July 16th 2013 Google opened the New Google Maps for web to everyone. Those maps had been available before, but only for lucky users who had got special invitations. Now everybody can enjoy the new interface and plenty of innovative features.
Moreover, on the next day (2013-17-07) Google launched an update to the Google Maps for iOS app, offering iPad support, indoor maps (malls, airports etc.) and many more upgrades introduced to Android with the recent update a week ago.
