Google Maps on Android adds colourful doodles for custom locations

Google has added a small but cool new feature to the Android version of its Maps app.

Users can now add a colourful sticker to their home and work locations, as well as any other spot of personal significance. Currently, there are 24 sketches to choose from, including a three story apartment building and barn, and a couple of more fanciful ones like a dragon and pirate ship. Once the user gets Maps to associate a sticker with a location, they’ll see the sticker become a permanent fixture on the map.

The blog post accompanying the announcement doesn’t mention when these doodles will make their way to the iOS version of Maps.
