HERE Maps for Android has quickly risen in popularity as a mapping and navigation solution for smartphone users. In their latest update issued earlier this week, developer Nokia has included a couple features that are the first to go through their new beta program. Headlining the changes is a new long-press contextual menu that brings up a choice of four different commands that can be selected without typing anything.
Using the long-press menu, users can just long-press anywhere on the map to pop up four choices – information, share, directions, or launch driving navigation right away. You can check out the HERE for Android video below showing how it works.
In addition to the new contextual menu, HERE for Android now gets a display of intermediate stops on transit routes. Nokia’s development team says this will help users better understand how long a journey may take and give them a better idea of when they may be getting off their current ride for a transfer or to end their journey. The app also gets the usual batch of bug fixes and performance improvements.
