Is this feature new in iOS 7 or have I just not come across it before?


1. Search for a business on Maps
2. Go to the info sheet
3. click add to existing or new contact.

Not only does it create a contact record for that business but it also grabs all the phone numbers, website URL and mailing address. Had lots of fun with this yesterday. Deleted all the businesses in my contacts that were partial and used this feature to properly populate them.

It has been in place at least since iOS6 and I think probably in iOS5

Its been there since at least 2008 (OS 2 - before they officially called it iOS).

lmao.

on a side note, where you able to locate ALL of your POP's? I've never found a single one who actually works or has updated info. Google Maps all the way.
