An indispensable guide to the world

Google Maps for iOS provides an unrivaled way to find your way around using your mobile phone.

Eye in the sky

With Google Maps installed on your device, you can view street and satellite maps of the whole World. Not only this, but it can be used to plot routes, find local places of interest, socialize with people around you and 'walk' along roads with Google's Street View.

Google Maps is incredibly easy to use on your iOS device. The application automatically detects your current location and displays it on screen. You can move around by holding your finger and dragging the screen and zoom in and out by pinching with your fingers.

Google Maps includes an Explore feature, where you can filter by distance, time of day, and type of place and get business information. So you won't be seeing results of restaurants that are closed, as Google Maps will detect the time of day. It is even aware of weather conditions, making sure you don't head to a park when it's about to rain.

Getting from A to B

Plotting routes and getting directions in Google Maps is very easy. You can get directions from A to B by searching for the start and end points, or clicking on them on the map. Towns and streets can be looked up by keyword or voice searching.

Google Maps for iOS displays information about businesses and points of interest. For instance, when the name of a restaurant appears on a map, you can click it to access more information, read user reviews, and get contact details. The new Places feature in Google Maps for iOS offers a quick link to information about special places.

Tap on the Navigation icon in Google Maps and you'll be able to see 3D maps and live traffic information. Moving around in Street View is a wonderful experience. It's linked to the Android compass, meaning that as you move and tilt the phone, the view changes with it.

It's hard to pick faults in Google Maps, but we would point out that it has a tendency to hog system resources, especially if you have many layers running at once. Be sure to kill the process when you're not using Google Maps or your battery meter will soon start shrinking.
