Yesterday we told you about a big overhaul coming to Google Maps, and today that overhaul has arrived. The Google Maps app for iPhone and iPad has been bumped up to version 4.0, bringing a whole new "Material Design" look to the mapping, search, and navigation app.
In addition to the new look, which features a lot of bright colors and a flatter design, the Google Maps update is also bringing integration with OpenTable for finding restaurants and making reservations at said restaurants, and integration with Uber that will allow you to estimate the wait time and fare for a ride with the private car service.
By and large Google Maps still works the same way on iOS and Android, it just has a nice new design, optimizations for iOS, and proper support for the bigger screens of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Check it out and let us know what you think of the new look.
