Google Maps One-Hand Zoom on iPhone

A friend and I just discovered a simple yet incredibly useful feature in Google Maps for iPhone… The one-hand zoom.

To perform a one-hand zoom simply double tap on your map and, after the second tap, leave your finger pressed. You can then move your finger up and down to zoom in/ zoom out.

Simple, useful, elegant, brilliant.

Dear Apple, I’d love to see you implement this in Apple Maps. Dear developers, I’d love to see you implement this in any pinch-to-zoom app.
