New Google Maps App Offers More Search Functionality, Navigation Features & Dedicated Tablet Design

Google Maps logoGoogle is rolling out a new Google Maps app for Android devices starting today, with iPhone and iPad versions on the way. The new app will include more search functionality, updated navigation features, Zagat reviews and discount offers for specific destinations.

Among the new app features, users will be able to find locations without typing by tapping the search box to see cards displaying eat, drink and shopping options. There are also two new navigation features, including one that reports road problems along with incident details, and another that lets users know if a better route is available. The app also comes with a dedicated tablet design for Android tablet and iPad users.

You can read more details on the new Google Maps app on our partner site at Search Engine Land.
