New Google App: "Mapnificent"

A new google app, dubbed Mapnificent, allows you to choose a starting location and then see all the places that you can reach by public transportation within a specified amount of time.

From post by Andrew Price at Good Magazine:

"Mapnificent is a Google Maps application that provides a brilliant new way of looking at your local geography... [it] lets you pick an apartment, restaurant, or bar based on the amount of travel time you can tolerate."
