View Google Maps on your desktop with eMaps for Mac

Interact with Google Maps with eMaps for Mac.

People who are disappointed in the Google Maps Internet interface might want alternatives for viewing maps online. eMaps for Mac allows you to operate a different interface, although the lack of any additional features ultimately makes the program unnecessary.

Available as a free trial version, there is an option to buy eMaps for Mac for $10. The trial version had no noticeable limits. The program's small size led to a quick download and, while there was no native installer, it did initiate and start quickly. There were no instructions or support readily apparent. The interface has an intuitive design that is actually similar to that of Google Maps itself. A text bar at the top allows the physical address to be entered. Once located, the map renders quickly and brings up a pop-up box with the street view photo. Buttons at the top of the program allow you to switch between map and street view easily. You can navigate maps and street photos by clicking and dragging an icon, just as with the Internet maps application. The program's operation was smooth overall with no glitches or errors.

For people who desire a different look and feel for their Google Maps interface and don't mind paying $10 for it, this rather functional app could be a good solution.
