Version 4.3.0 of Google Maps for iOS is now available from the Apple App Store for iPhones and iPads running iOS 6 or higher. With the update, you will see business that are nearby an address that you search for. In addition, you will see interesting facts on nearby points of interest, and on your calendar you can add transit directions.

If you post over 200 reviews, you will get a annual gift from Google besides being featured on Google+ and on the tech titan's Facebook and Twitter pages.

And we almost let you get away without informing you that the new update to Google Maps for iOS also includes bug fixes. Yes, we know, you're shocked as well (That's called sarcasm, folks). Google Maps for iOS is a free download.

I can't standing use Apple Maps. It is usually several minutes off on arrival time and also send you the much longer way if even to the right location. I was very happy when Google released Maps for iOS.
