We all love the Google Maps app for iPhone. Not only is it easier to use than the Apple version, but we have definitely gotten lost a lot less since they released the app in December. Today, Google released a new update to their popular Maps application. A major flaw in the first version of the app was the inability to search and pull the addresses of contacts stored in your phone. With the new update they have fixed this problem, so now users must be logged in to their Google accounts so the app can pull all contact information straight from there. Also, there are new added shortcuts to help you find the restaurants, gas stations, bars + more closest to you. We love the new additions and can’t wait to put them to good use. What do you think about the new update? Let us know.
