MapQuest Updates: Walking Directions, Android App

A couple of recent announcements from MapQuest: walking and transit directions for the desktop/web version (playing catchup here — Google added walking directions in 2008, Bing in 2010 — but playing catchup is better than not playing at all) and a new, free Android app.

Update: Also another catchup feature: alternate routes — the ability to choose from several options when getting directions.
