Google Maps for iOS Gains Apple Watch App

Google today updated its Google Maps app for iOS to version 4.11.0, adding support for the Apple Watch. As of today, there’s a Google Maps app that delivers directions on Apple’s wrist-worn device.

Along with a new Apple Watch app, today’s update also includes a tool for comparing estimated travel times across driving, transit, walking and biking directions, and it adds a feature for calling businesses and getting directions from a list of places. As with most updates, there are also unspecified bug fixes.

What’s New
– Easily compare ETAs across driving, transit, walking & biking
– Call business & get directions directly from a list of places
– Get directions to places now on your Apple Watch
– Bug fixes

This isn’t Google’s first app for the Apple Watch, but it will arguably be the most useful as there are many iOS users who still prefer to use Google Maps over Apple Maps.

Google Maps can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Google Updates Chrome Browser for iOS With Notification Center Widget, App Extensions [iOS Blog]

Google today released a significant update to its Chrome browser for iOS, adding several features to improve its compatibility with iOS 8. There’s a new Notification Center widget that includes controls to let users launch a new tab or initiate a voice search directly from the Today view of the Notification Center.

Tapping on „New Tab“ or on „Voice Search“ will automatically launch the Chrome web browser with a new search tab open or an activated voice search, making it handier to look things up quickly. There’s no comparable Safari widget for quick launching searches, so the new Chrome widget gives it a bit of a leg up over Apple’s built-in browser. Safari users can, however, use Siri for quick searches.

The app also includes support for iOS Extensions for apps like 1Password and LastPass, so it’s now easier to input passwords into Chrome with those apps.

Other new features include the ability to pull to reload and open and close tabs and easier-to-open links copied from other apps.

What’s new
– Start searching and browsing faster: quick access to Voice Search and open new tabs from the Today View
– Ergonomically-designed: Pull to reload and open/close tabs
– Support for iOS App Extensions, such as 1Password and LastPass
– Easily open links copied from other apps

The Chrome web browser can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]
