If you need to do a Google search on your iPhone or iPod touch it’s now faster and easier when using the redesigned Google Search app, formerly Google Mobile App. If you’ve been using Google Mobile App for a while, you’ll notice that things look a little different…
Redesigned Home Screen
There are now more ways to interact with the app. When browsing through search results or looking at a webpage, you can swipe down to see the search bar or change your settings. For those who use other Google apps, there’s an Apps button at the bottom of the screen for rapid access to the mobile versions of Google products.
They have also included a new toolbar that will make it easier for you to filter your results. You can open this toolbar by swiping from left to right — either before you search or once you’ve got your results. If you only want images, just tap “Images”.
If you leave the app and come back later, you’ll be able either to start a new search right away (just tap in the search box to type, hit the microphone button to do a voice search or tap on the camera icon to use Google Goggles) or get back to exactly where you were by tapping on the lower part of the page.
Finally, there are a number of improvements including Google Goggles, Voice Search, Search with My Location, Gmail unread counts and more. There’s a lot in the app, so Google have also added a simple help feature to let you explore it. Access this by tapping the question mark above the Google logo.
