Google Maps for Android gets updated, now includes persistant search results and mapping history

Google pushes update for Google Maps for Android, includes new search abilities

Google have pushed out an update for their Google Maps for Android app, which now includes some cool new abilities. The update brings across more of a persistant set of search results, as the app has access to your desktop and mobile search history.

Google Maps for Android has access to your desktop and mobile search history through My Places, meaning that if you run any searches when signed into your Google account with web history enabled, it will now pop-up with auto-completed entries that has been searched for previously.

 

This is a nice feature if you're someone like myself who would run a Maps search through Chrome, when signed into the browser, and then go to your Android-based phone and run a search through Maps or Navigation. What's funnier, is that Google decide to release their updated, better-featured Maps app on the day of Apple's iPhone 5 release, where the company removed Google's Map app in favor of their own, not-so-good app.
