For years now, I've been looking for a modern replacement to Cocktail Flow, one of our favorite cocktail recipes apps back in 2011.

With every few updates, Google Maps seems to walk closer and closer to a full-fledged refresh of its Material interface, helping it go along with the new direction Google is taking this year with its app design language. We've seen a new look for the main interface, an updated side menu, overhauled hotel listings, new fonts in many places throughout the app, a persistent Overview/Reviews/Photos bar on some place listings, and even an update to the look of the app on Android Auto.

Over the past few months, Google Maps has received several updates to its design, bottom tabs, and various place listings, all in an effort to make it fit with Google's new Material Design look.

Google has been steadily updating its first-party apps to its "Google Material Theme" — which most of the internet continues to call Material Design 2, much to Google's apparent chagrin.
