Google Creates iOS App To Manage Your Google Places Listing

Google Places iOS AppiClarified spotted that Google released (too early) an iOS app that lets businesses manage their Google Maps listings.

I am not kidding you. Despite all the bugs and issues with Google Places, with like four different ways to manage your listings - we will be getting yet another way - via an iOS app and probably, I'd assume an Android app as well.

Does the iOS app work with Google Places or Google+ Local or something else? I am not sure.

The app was pulled from the iTunes App Store, so I cannot download it to see. But here are some screen shots from the iClarified blog.

What’s not clear is which kinds of local business owners can actually use the app; some are still stuck in the limbo between Google Places and Google+ Local. Given that situation, my jaw is practically on the ground over the fact that there’s an iPhone app for managing Google business listings.
