Google Maps and Images Get unofficial Instant Treatment and Google Images Instant is faster, nicely done, soon Instant technology will be spread across Google platforms……
A tech guru named Michael Hart has made unofficial instant versions of Google Maps and Google Images, riffing off of Google’s official Google Instant app and Stanford student Feross Aboukhadijeh’s YouTube Instant spinoff.Just like their predecessors, Google Maps Instant and Google Images Instant display search results as you type, without requiring you to submit your query by hitting Enter or clicking “Search.” Google Maps Instant works quite well, though when you’re typing an address it probably won’t narrow down to what you’re looking for until you start typing the city.
Google Images Instant works beautifully. It’s quite speedy, though Hart tweeted a disclaimer that it takes a while to get really fast because it has to cache the images locally.Hart put Google Images Instant together in less than two hours, according to TopINews, and he accompanied both apps with a notice that says: “Btw, Google: I’m looking for a job too! Congrats Feross Aboukhadijeh!” He’s referencing YouTube Co-Founder and CEO Chad Hurley’s public job offer to the guy behind YouTube Instant. He hasn’t received a tweet from Hurley yet, but it’s been barely half a Saturday since the apps went live so we’ll see.
