Google Maps: Save Places To Lists

New Google Maps feature: Save places to listsGoogle treated the Google Maps app with a new feature. Now it is possible to save places in lists to have a better and faster access to them. By default you can use these lists: Favorites, Want to go and Starred places. You can of course add your own lists as well.


All you have to do is keeping your Google Maps app up-to-date. Check the App Store, if there is a new update available.

Google is unlocking this feature for everyone step by step. So if you cannot see the list feature yet, just wait a few days and try it again.

Google Maps: Save places in lists

Open Google Maps on your iPhone and search for a certain place or tap a place or building (e.g. sightseeing attraction) on the map.
