Google announced that the new version of its Google Mobile app for the iPhone was approved and is now available in the App Store. The new version includes a redesigned search results display that shows more results at once. It also opens web pages from the results within the app.

"For those less utilitarian and more flamboyant, we’ve exposed our visual tweaks settings called ‘Bells and Whistles’ – some of our users had discovered this already in previous versions," says Google software engineer Alastair Tse. "You can style your Google Mobile App in any shade: red, taupe, or even heliotrope. If you’re on a faster iPhone, like the iPhone 3GS, you may want to try the live waveform setting which turns on, as the name suggests, a moving waveform when you search by voice."

"On the subject of searching by voice, you can now choose your spoken language or accent," adds Tse. "For example, if you’re Australian but live in London, you can improve the recognition accuracy by selecting Australian in the Voice Search settings. And now both Mandarin and Japanese are supported languages as well." 

The app also includes "My Location," which lets users avoid typing their current location when searching for nearby businesses, Google Suggest, which shows suggested queries as the user types, and search history.
