Google Maps iOS app gets on-map displays of search, Gmail content

updated 12:57 pm EDT, Fri July 11, 2014

New Explore feature points out places and activities

Google has released an update of its Google Maps client for iOS, adding several significant features. When searching for places, for instance, results will now appear directly on a map. Users can switch between this view and a more standard list.

Similarly, reservations and other appointments mentioned in a person's Gmail inbox will now be labeled on maps. For those open to freeform searches, a new Explore option (pictured) will highlight local places and activities based on the time of day.

As before the app is a free download, and requires iOS 6 or later.
