Google Maps 1.1 for iOS brings saved addresses from contacts, local search

DSC01444Google has released its first update to Maps for iOS, bringing some features over from Android and the web.

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.

Similarly, Google has introduced local search into Maps for iOS: you can now search for ‘coffee’, ‘restaurants’ and others and it will populate the map around your area.

Lastly, you can now specify kilometres or miles in your designated search area, rather than have Google decide for you. This is good if you want to maintain your metric proclivities while roaming south of the border.
