Google brings flight, hotel and restaurant reservations to Maps for iOS (update: Android too)

If you fancy yourself a jetsetter, fine-diner, or, er, traveling salesman and happen to use an iDevice, Google has some good news for you. The latest update to Maps on iOS brings some of Google Now's functionality into the company's navigation app. Search for your restaurant, departing airport or hotel, and the application will auto-populate with your plans -- so long as the confirmations were sent to your linked Gmail account. Sure, it's similar to what the outfit added to Maps' desktop version earlier this year (pictured above), but since when was feature parity a bad thing?

Update: Google has pushed the feature for Google Maps on Android as well, and notes that it's currently available only in the US.
