Google Maps For iOS Updated To Version 1.1
Google has released its first update to Google Maps for iOS, bringing some features over from Android and the web.
Version 1.1, available on the App Store on Tuesday, now allows users to search for addresses based on their Google Contacts if they choose to log into their Google accounts. Additionally, the app now allows users to search for general categories like “restaurants,” “bars,” “gas stations,” and so on. Non-US users will also rejoice at the ability to choose between kilometers and miles for the app’s distance estimates.
Users can now sync up previously-searched locations based on contact information, so if you have an address saved under Mom, searching by name will point you to the place on the map.
Google asks customers to note that some of these features “may not be available in all countries.”
Google Maps is a free download from the App Store.
