    Default Anyone had any luck with Google Places

    I downloaded the Google Maps update and thought that it was going to load Google Places. I rebooted the phone and did not find any indication that Google Places had been added. Any one have any luck?

    It's a separate install from the Market.

    no its not. Google places comes packaged with maps 4.4.

    You should be able to find it in your app drawer.

    It might of been better had they made it a tab inside of maps. Right now as it is the Places app will not replace Where anytime soon.

    I cannot find it in my app drawer nor do I see a icon in Google Maps that refers to Google Places, I must be missing something.

    its called just places in the app drawer. Not sure if that helps remedy the issue as I've heard from others claiming they did not see it in their appp drawer as well.

    I think some users did a reboot to see it.

    OK I found a Places Directory in the App Store. I downloaded that and it works with Google Maps but they are separate.

    Places and Latitude was both added with the Maps update. Strange though, they both was located at the BOTTOM of my apps out of alphabetical order at the bottom. I thought that was fixed with the update.

    My Places app is located in sorting order inside my Apps Drawer.

    Also, you don't need to reboot the phone for it to show up.

    As I stated above my Places was added to my adds drawer at the bottom, I have not rebooted to see if that would fix it, just wanted to prove what I said. It also added Latitude at the end too.

    As I had mentioned I thought this was fixed.

    Mine was sorted in alphabetical order... until I used Places. Then it was sorted at the bottom, along with Lattitude. AFter using it again, both Lat and Places are now sorted in alphabetical order again. Strange...
