Google Maps for mobile 4.1 for Android Goes Tab-less, Adds Latitude Widget, Live Wallpaper, & Ads!

Google updated its Maps for Android app:

Google Maps for Android: Search ‘n Swipe, Latitude Widget, and More

Version 4.1 adds:

– Updated tab-less search results page with buttons to see a result’s map location, directions, voice call, and directions
– Swipe to see more results (see video demo above)
– Latitude widget
– Maps live wallpaper on Android 2.1 phones (like the Nexus One and soon the Droid)
– Ability to switch between different Google accounts

I also noticed a text advertisement across the top of the map page. If this isn’t new, it is the first time I’ve noticed it.
