Google Maps, otherwise known as the mapping app that Apple Maps so desperately wishes it could be, got a little bit better today with an app refresh. The update brings with it a cleaner look and less clutter, which happens to match the post-iOS 7 aesthetic perfectly, along with support for third-party apps such as OpenTable and Uber.

For restaurants which already accept OpenTable reservations, Google Maps users will be able to claim time slots right from within the mapping app itself. Likewise, when plotting directions in the app, Uber customers will be able to see estimated pickup times and pricing information, as long as they already have the Uber app installed on their phones. Google notes that the update will roll out within the next few days, so keep an eye out for the new and improved Maps.
