It sure is nice when the folks building your operating system also make some of the best applications around.  Proof -- Google Maps for Android's new updates.  Little things make for great software, and the Google maps app is chock full of them.  Today's update brings biking directions, a direct shortcut to turn by turn navigation in the app drawer, and the coolest new feature is destination sharing.  Enter your destination and you can now share the address with your friends via email or SMS, as well as popular social media sites like Facebook, Buzz or Twitter.  Open your market app and update maps to check out the new features.  Android 1.6+ only.  Sorry Cupcakers.  [via Google Mobile Blog]
