According to MapQuest, it will be launching a faster, more responsive service for both mobile and desktop; launch a new tablet experience; new urban user features; and more connections with partners such as Priceline, OpenTable, SeatGeek, and others. In addition, the company also announced it has linked with custom mapping technology developer Mapbox, in order to create adaptable, fast loading, and responsive maps for its service.
