Google has just updated its Maps app for iOS and its Drive app for Mac with new and noteworthy features.
Through its latest update, Google Maps for iOS has gained filters for searching for restaurants by cuisine type and support for displaying current weather information for cities across the globe.
The official iPhone and iPad app of Google’s mapping service now also lets you drop pins for both of your starting and destination points in directions and navigation. In addition, it now lets you add transit directions to your calendar for future reference.
First up, there’s a new menu that indicates the upload status of files as they sync and provides a quick way to open recently synced items.
And then there’s a new advanced setting that allows you to limit the bandwidth allocation for Google Drive for Mac so that extra bandwidth can be used for more important computer tasks (like browsing the Web or checking email).
The new version of Google Maps for iOS is available now on the App Store for free, while the new features of the free Google Drive for Mac is rolling out over the next few days.
Google has been really busy with improving its app offerings of late.
