Google Maps for iOS got a little bit of an upgrade today.

For the first time, events from your Gmail account will be added to your Google Maps, so you’ll know where that party is without ever having to glance at the invite.

Additionally, Google changed the search function so query results will show up right on the map along with descriptions, though a list view is also available. The Explore feature, a local guide that recommends places and activities depending on where you are and what time it is, has also been refined to spit out better suggestions.
