Top Tech News of the Week: "Google Maps New Update","YouTube Took Down More Videos","Facebook Plans New Service"....

Google Maps New Update:  Google has rolled out a useful update on the "Saved tab" in  Google Maps. Now Google allows us to bookmark our favourite locations, you can sort your locations like "favourites", "Starred places" or you can create a custom list too. The latest update is quite useful for the users, which helps us to arrange places like, recently saved and how close we are ( If you have turned on your location).
Now it's quite easy to find, our visited locations during recent past vacations, in the new feature that organized it all by city, time, region or country.  These updates make it easier to create your wishlist and the list of places that you have visited. After having such useful updates, the user experience of "Saved tab" frustrate me at times.
If we have saved a lot of places then it disarrays your map view, the only way to organize better if we toggle the label of the places. It allows hiding the individual list only, which sometimes stops to save more places.
