Google Maps would probably like you to know that it can do even more than help you orient yourself when you're lost, make sure a car you're in is going the right way and track your location in general. It can also allow the user to make Lists, which involve sorting different places and useful information on them into individual orders for later reference.
Lists and their items can be set by the user (for example, their titles can refer to specific places); alternatively, they can fall into a few default categories (Starred Places, Want to go, etc.). However, the order in which these items appeared has been largely determined by the app's developer, which could have made them difficult to find in a given List.
However, the new Google Maps update, which has been reported as server-side thus far, changes this. Now, the user can either sort them manually, or according to their names. The new update also supports the ability to set a specific photo for, as well as the new option to add notes to, each item.
These notes are expandable, in order to promote their easy selection from a given List. Maps also now offers the option to make one directly from the Save to list page. All in all, this new update should make Lists in Google Maps easier to read, use and interact with.
