The Google Search mobile landing page got a change overnight that deeply integrates Google Places, making it easier to find nearby restaurants, coffee shops and bars directly from the front page. Other Places directories, like ATMs, fast food and petrol stations, can be searched locally with just one more tap of the finger.

Tapping any of the directory sections leads to a sleek, scrollable list of businesses, with a Google Map at the top of the screen that changes dynamically to show the locations currently being listed on the screen.
