Google released tips to get the most out of your Google maps iPhone app! With all the anticipation for the return of this wondrous app, people are glad to just have it back. You can save your home and work addresses on the Google Maps app to conveniently get from point A to B. But why not take advantage of all it has to offer? We all know and love the app for its reliability and easy user experience. Now it is easier than ever.

Sometimes you need to change the directions to show you the correct directions depending on how you’re getting around. Use two of your fingers and swipe the screen from the right to the left and you’ll open up the menu to choose driving, public transportation, or walking. You can always click on the little buttons on the bottom right to access those choices as well. Don’t know which direction you’re going? There’s no need to worry when you have a compass option on the app! The iPhone is famous for its double-tapping zoom capabilities and now that is available on the Google maps application as well.

Press and hold on your screen to drop a pin onto the map to get more information and get a street view to help you find where you want to go. You can swipe your screen left or right to view more information or results. If there is something wrong with the directions, either permanent issues or construction, shake your iPhone! By simply shaking your iPhone, you are alerting Google to take a second look at where you are. From the littlest details to big changes, Google is always working to make our lives a bit easier. Make sure to check out the rest of the tips and see how our favorite navigating app got better.

    So much better than Apple maps… I love that if you’re signed into Google it pulls your search history from any device you looked up a location on so it’s all right there. So convenient.
