Google updates Maps for iOS with nearby businesses, quick facts on points of interest

Today Google has released the latest version of its Maps application for iOS. Google Maps 4.3.0 is already up for grabs from the iTunes App Store, for both iPhone and iPad (running iOS 6.0 or later). The update brings with it a few new features.

For starters, you now see nearby businesses when you look up an address. Additionally, you get quick facts on popular points of interest, and you can add transit directions to your calendar.

You’re also able to see a list of upcoming events and performances at certain participating venues, and you can earn your Local Guides badge by sharing reviews. Finally, of course some unnamed bug fixes are in too.
