Google Maps for iOS updated with redesigned Transit directions

The battle for cartographic supremacy is very much alive. Apple promises huge Maps in iOS 9 with granular transit directions, and Google Maps for iOS has been updated today with a number of improvements in the same field.

Now at version 4.8.0, Google Maps for iOS has been redesigned Transit directions that bring you “more route choice and real-time arrival information.” This certainly increases the usability of the app and directly competes with local fan favourites like Transit App and Citymapper. In addition, Google Maps now offers more options to share your location to your network, specifically on Facebook and Facebook Messenger.
