Google for iOS can play GIFs in search results, show maps in-app

Google has released an update for its iOS app to add a fun feature and make it even more useful after upgrading its "Ok, Google" voice prompt. Now, when you search for an address, you'll get map results within the app. You can also leave reviews of your (most and least) favorite establishments: simply search for a place's name and click the right link that shows up at the top of the results page. It'll take you to a section where you can rate the restaurant/brewery/concert hall/et cetera, write up a short review and even upload photos of the location. Finally -- and for some people, most importantly -- the app can now play animated GIFs in the Image results tab, so long as you click and enlarge them.
