Today, Google has released a new iPhone and iPod touch application for its Places for Business platform. Places for Business is a Google service that allows business owners to manage the presence of their business across Google services such as Search, Maps, and Google+. Now, with the new app, these tasks can be handled on the go.

Business owners can use the app to: – Verify your business listing directly from your phone – Update your business information: hours, address, contact information, and description – Post beautiful pictures of your business on your local Google+ page – Track web traffic going to your listing – Manage multiple business locations from one app

Having the ability to manage Places for Business from an iPhone or iPod touch is a compelling experience because information can be updated at a quicker pace. Additionally, the camera inside of iOS devices can allow for quick uploading of photos of businesses. The app is free on the App Store.
