Google push Maps update for iPhone


Google updated their Google Maps application for iOS with some new functionality on top of the usual improvements. You are now able to integrate your Contacts… err, Google Contacts data and directly access saved locations and connectios. Searching is now faster and you are able to see distances both in km and miles. An exciting feature for all of you who can’t stand being dry is the app’s Cocktail button. Tap on it and look up the best bars to quench your thirst, and then you can use the fork and knife button to scout nearby restaurants to get through that drunken hunger. There is a coffee and gas pump button too, but don’t dare drink and drive.

It seems iPad users will have to wait a little bit, while iPhone owners can update as they please.
