New features make Google Maps on iOS an even better travel companion

Google Maps iOS Update

For nearly two years, Apple has been dedicated to building the only mobile maps app you’ll ever need on your iOS device, but with every improvement to Google Maps, it becomes more and more difficult to convert. This past week, Google Maps was updated on iPhone and iPad to include search results with descriptions overlaid on the map, the ability to quickly switch between the map view and list view, reservations and events from Gmail labeled on the map and an improved Explore guide. Google Maps on iOS hasn’t quite caught up with its Android or desktop counterparts, but with every additional feature, Google gives iPhone owners another reason to slide that undeletable Maps app into a folder with Newsstand and Passbook.
