Workflow: Directions via Google Maps
December 27, 2014
I typically use Google Maps on my iPhone for navigation, but I find some aspects of the Google Maps app difficult to use. I don't use its ability to bookmark locations because I have trouble finding that functionality in the app when I need it.
I have been wanting a better way to store bookmarked locations for Google Maps. The new Workflow iOS app helped me to arrive at one. I built a very simple action extension workflow. This workflow allows me to open Contacts, select a contact, and navigate to that contact's address using Google Maps. If I anticipate driving to an unfamiliar location, I will create a contact whose address is that location.
