The new version of maps isn't just a visual overhaul, though - a few functional tidbits are packed in as well.

OpenTable integration is packed in, too, allowing you to reserve a table right from a restaurant's Maps info card, which is certainly pretty nice. Otherwise, most of the changes are design-oriented, and you can read a bit more about them in the LatLong blog post, right here.

Update: Here is the Maps 9.0 APK. Enjoy.
