Google Maps Android Battery Usage

Googlers are users of Google products, more so than the average person. But Googlers who have been at Google for 6 or so years often don't publicly complain about those products.

Erica Joy of Google, who has been with Google since 2006, noticed her battery on her Android device was being drained.

She posted a screen shot calling out the app that was to blame. Yes, it was the native Google Maps app running on Android.

Oh, Google+ wasn't far behind.

Erica said, "Srsly maps?"

It is refreshing to see this openness and honesty from a Googler.
