Chrome for iOS adds Passbook features, text encoding and more
If you're a devoted Chrome fan, particularly its iOS iteration, you're no doubt familiar with the regular update cycle that constantly adds new features and crushes existing bugs. As TNW reports, Chrome just received a few iOS-specific touches that once again make the popular browser incrementally better, including support for Passbook on iOS 6.
Chrome's new functionality makes it possible to take things like virtual tickets and boarding passes and save them into your Passbook. The app now also allows users to open web-based PDFs using other apps, which is rather handy if you're already familiar with a separate third-party PDF app. There's also a new text encoding detection option that solves an issue with jumbled, unreadable text on some web pages.
You can upgrade to the new version of Chrome for iOS -- version 23.0.1271.91 -- right now via the App Store.
