Google Maps adds offline support to iOS

Jacob Kastrenakes of the Verge on theĀ latest update to the Google Maps app bringing offline maps support:

Among the most helpful of the updates will certainly be offline maps, which is now front-and-center on iOS for the first time and in a more robust form on Android: after searching for or tapping on a location, Maps will display an option to save that area for use without an internet connection. Google is introducing a way to manage those offline maps too, allowing users to see what locations they have saved through their profile.

I’d previously been using CityMaps2Go for offline maps while traveling abroad. I’ll check out Google Maps offline support while I’m in Rome.
