Today at Nokia World we had a Q&A session with Pino from the Ovi Blog. He showed us the new Ovi Maps 3.06 running on his black Nokia N8. The v3.06 is still a beta, but it brings an impressive amount of improvements to Ovi Maps. Among my favorite ones is the way in which now the search function works; it is more powerful and complete. The main new feature, however, is that the new Ovi Maps now lets you check into your favorite social networks (But FourSquare which will come as a separate app and will be released very soon). The next big thing with the Ovi Maps v3.06 is the public transportation feature, which works in 85 cities! The overall feel and look of the app has also been improved. All I can say is that Ovi Maps looks beautiful on the AMOLED screen of the N8, very fast too. Watch the video below for the intro!
