    I just downloaded it a couple hours ago and I immediately noticed that too. Very exciting to have more options.

    i saw the notification for an update and immediately did it hoping it was the upgrade for android 2.1 but i guess multi touch for nonrooted is a good one since it works great

    I can see and like the pinch and zoom aspect of multi-touch and it is kinda nice to have on the maps program. But can someone tell me why is multi-touch in general such a big deal?

    Moderator please move this if it is not in the best place

    Yea, I considered this event newsworthy. Aparently the Admins here don't care about anything other than hacking to get what they want.

    dumb question: how do you update maps? I can't find a menu item to do this either with the icon or in the settings area.
