Google Maps receives update for iOS: you can finally look for stops along your route
Today, the Maps app for iOS has finally received an update, which gives it the very same functionality. It's a very convenient way of setting stops without too much hassle. So, tap the little magnifying glass icon and either choose one of the pre-set search queries or tap on the microphone and ask Google for the specific thing you are looking for. Tap on the place you want to visit along the way and press the “Add stop” button that pops up. Now, your route will include the new location.
There's also a new widget for iPhone and iPad users. Called “Nearby traffic”, the widget does pretty much what you can assume from the name — it follows and updates you on traffic conditions in your area. That way, you can know whether you need to worry about jams and plan trip times just by glancing over at the widget screen.
