    I use my maps app a lot for work, and sometimes I need to zoom out with one hand while stopped at red lights. As far as I can tell, the only way to zoom out is by tapping with two fingers, or pinching the screen. Is there really no way to zoom out with just one finger? I use mainly just my thumb for my phone, so having to lay it down to use two fingers is just a little cumbersome.

    Double tapping zooms in not out. The only way to zoom out is to pinch in Google Maps.

    However, in the Bing app the maps part has a little button at the top right for zooming out with one touch.

    Single tapping with two fingers zooms out in google maps also. Thanks for the bing suggestion.
