Junichi Uekawa, software engineer at Google commented,

“How often are you doing a Google search from your computer to find information about a place before going there? Now, next time you go to on your Android phone or iPhone, information about that place will be conveniently available under the new “Recent” icon. Calling, getting directions or seeing details about the places you just searched for is now only one tap away.”

It’s a small update, but one that should prove very useful.
