    Default Update for Google Maps for iOS Makes the App More Google Now-Like


    Google recently rolled out a minor but noteworthy update to its Google Maps for iOS, which now sprinkles in a little Google Now functionality into the mix. Authenticated users can use Google Maps to check on the status of their flight, hotel and restaurant reservations. To do so, users simply need to tap on an airport, hotel or restaurant from within Google Maps and theyíll be presented with any pertinent information about said location assuming it exists somewhere within the Google universe.


    The folks over at TechCrunch mentioned the following about Googleís recently added functionality and the direction itís headed in:

    The company has been slowly iterating on making Google's apps feel less like standalone destinations, and more like tools that allow you to access the vast data that Google has about the world, and about you personally. It's been blurring the lines between its services, as well as between what's public and private.

    The added functionality, like that arriving in Maps today on iOS, makes Google into a more personalized, smart assistant, even for those who don't have an Android phone running Google Now.
    For those of you who donít already have Google Maps on your iOS device, you can download it for free from the App Store.
