    I have all of my applications organized into folders. Google Maps is in my Travel folder because it is very useful when I am traveling. The icon itself is quite colorful with green, yellow, blue, red and white. This resembles the map you will see when you enter the application, so this is a nice miniature version of it. Tap the icon once to open Google Maps.

    My personal accounts are already set up on this phone. However, you can tap Add another account at the bottom to add a new account, which we will demonstrate.

    At the next screen, you simply sign in to your Gmail account.

  11. 11
    I will go back and tap on my account name to sign in. Since it knows me already, it doesn't require me to enter a password. However, you will probably have to enter your password at least the first time you sign into your account.

    The map itself does not look any different after you have signed into your Gmail account.

    However, when you want to add different places or save information, that will automatically be on your account. This may not look the same when you are on the computer or a different device.
