You can now create lists of places, share your lists and follow the lists of friends and family all within Google Maps.

To create a new list, just open a place on Google Maps and then tap the “save” link and you can either choose one of Google’s presets or you can create your own custom lists.

If you would like to view your saved lists, tap on the menu and they are saved under the “Your Places” section withing Google Maps. Your lists are available within your desktop app and viewed offline.

Sharing and following other lists is also a cool new feature and I can see how this will come in handy for vacation planning and weekend getaways.
