Google updates trio of their Android apps (Goggles, Maps, Google+)

googleGoogle has updated three of their Android applications today with Maps, Google+, and Google Goggles each getting new features. While Google Maps (6.0.1) is strictly made up of bug fixes and stability enhancements, Google Goggles and Google+ are a little more meaty.

Google Goggles (1.7) now allows for faster and improved results with better text recognition, and a new continuous mode. As is the case with typical features of Goggles the non-stop scanning works best with books, products, brands, and landmarks. It's worth noting that Continuous mode does not allow for search history nor does it offer translation of foreign text. For those you will need to revert to Snapshot mode.
