Google launches Google+ Local mobile app for Apple iOS devices

Google recently converted Google Places into a web app deeply integrated with Google Plus.

We assumed that Google Places would become an integral part of the Google Plus mobile app as well.

But Google seems to have decided to keep it separate. You can now download Google+ Local mobile app on your Apple iOS devices.

The app comes loaded with reviews from your friends on Google+ in addition to summaries and reviews from Zagat as well.

Other features:

* Ability to search via Voice Search. Simply tap the microphone and speak your query
* Improved UI for searching for places that aren’t nearby.
* Switched to using OAuth2 login for improved security
* And of course bug fixes… :)

This app replaces the Google Places app previously offered by the company.
