Google Maps Android API gets a major update

Google has rolled out some major updates to their Google Maps Android API.

Google Maps Android API is used by third party developers to integrate Google Maps into their Android apps.

Google said:

The updated API is easy to use and features vector-based maps that load quickly and enables users to easily navigate 2D and 3D views, and tilt and rotate the map with simple gestures.

New features:

More dynamic and flexible UI designs for large screen Android devices, such as tablets, using Android Fragments
Adding more Google Maps layers in their apps including satellite, hybrid, terrain, traffic and now indoor maps for many major airports and shopping centers
The ability to create markers and info windows with less code
