Cool iPhone Feature

On a whim, I just determined that if you navigate to a Google Maps URI within Safari on the iPhone, it will launch the Google Maps application on the iPhone, rather than staying within Safari. It even works for directions. For example, click on this link from your iPhone, and you’ll get directions from the St. Louis Airport to Busch Stadium. This is a pretty slick way of providing integration between the native iPhone apps and the Web.
