MapQuest.com Is Now Optimized for Android!

Since last Fall, iPhone users have enjoyed a mobile-Safari optimized MapQuest.com. The experience provides seamless interaction to many of the features found on MapQuest.com such as Directions, Maps, Search, Gas Prices, and Local. Once we finished the initial rollout we went back to work and added MapQuest Local on the iPhone in early January.

As soon as we launched MapQuest.com optimized for iPhone, we immediately started receiving requests from Android users voicing their desire to have the same experience on their beloved Android Smartphone devices.

Well Android users, we are happy to announce that Mapquest.com now supports an optimized experience on all Android devices, with draggable maps available in the Android 1.5 “Cupcake” update.
