Today the Google Maps SDK has received a sizable update that adds quite a bit of goodies for developers. The Google Maps SDK has added support for ground overlays, gesture controls and geodesic polylines.

These new additions can be found in the Google API Console. In a video released Google’s Mano Marks and Paul Samantha show off these new features. In the same video they also announce that keys for the Google Maps SDK are available to all via the console where as before you had to register and then play the waiting game.

(Author) - I am currently attending college to receive my degree in Computer Science with a pipe dream to someday work at Google. I love everything about android and smartphones and always love learning more about them or anything else tech wise. I also love developing Android apps and learning new types of code in my spare time. My current devices I use are my LG Optimus G and Nexus 7, Pebble watch is still on the way.
