iPhone Gets New Search App From Google
Google has released an updated version of its Google Mobile App for iPhone aimed at making it faster and easier to find apps.
The app has been redesigned and renamed and is now known as the Google Search app for iPhone.
When browsing search results users can swipe down to view the search bar or change their settings. Google app users now have access to an Apps button at the bottom of the screen for access to Google mobile apps.
A new toolbar now makes it easier for users to filter results. Users can access the tool bar by swiping left to right, before they search or from within the search results. There is an image only option users can access by taping “Images.”
Google has also made it easier to leave an app and come back later and start a new search. Users can hit the microphone button to do a voice search or tap on the camera icon to access Google Goggles.
The Google Mobile Blog offers more information. “Finally, there are a number of improvements we’ve made to everything else you love in the app, including Google Goggles, Voice Search, Search with My Location, Gmail unread counts and more.”
“There’s a lot in the app, so we’ve added a simple help feature to let you explore it. Access this by tapping the question mark above the Google logo.”
