Google Mobile App now available for BlackBerry Storm

Thursday, March 25, 2010 | 7:47 AM

If you have a BlackBerry Storm or Storm2, and have been wondering when you'd have access to Google Mobile App and features like search by voice, then we hope you'll be happy with today's news. We're launching a new version of Google Mobile App for BlackBerry Storm and Storm2.


This version contains all of the useful features of Google Mobile App, but is tailored for BlackBerry touchscreen devices. You can search using your voice instead of typing your query. Just hold the green button and speak your query in English, Mandarin Chinese, or Japanese. You can also use Google Mobile App to search your BlackBerry's email and contacts. To find an email, you can search for the name of the person who sent you an email, or a phrase from the body of the message. If you'd rather Google Mobile App not search your email and contacts, you can turn off Phone Search in the options screen. Information about your contacts and content from your emails is accessible only on your device; Google Mobile App does not send this data to Google.

Google Mobile App also includes a few other conveniences to make searching easy, such as Google Suggest and search history. Google Mobile App also links to other Google services, such as Google Maps and Gmail, so you can access them quickly.

Google Mobile App is available in seven languages in more than twenty countries.

To download Google Mobile App to your BlackBerry, visit m.google.com in your BlackBerry's browser. If you have any questions or comments, or if you want to learn more, please visit our help center.

Omg please update nokia's mobile app, because it's so old. it doesn't even support touchscreen. and just like mobile app, gmail is so old that i don't want to use it at all. i have nokia 5800 XM, and only mobile app by google that works on it is maps.

Thank you!! Now if we could get Google Calendar and Google Reader apps, I'd be in heaven.

Can we have an option for turning off the apps link? First of all, the news link shows in a different language. I know it's free and all but who does you testing? I mean that's bad.

I have a Samsung Jack, with windows mobile on it. I had the youtube app for about 2 months and it worked perfectly fine. Recently, I was on the youtube app and it asked me if I wanted to update the app. So I clicked update and it gave me a message saying: "Installation was unsuccessful. The program or setting cannot be installed because it does not have sufficient system permissions." I don't have a data plan on my phone, but the youtube app would work perfectly fine on the Wifi I'd use on my phone. I contacted my service, AT&T, and they said I have to contact the third-party service, which is youtube. AT&T told me there was no problem on my phone. I tried looking for a way to contact youtube, but I couldn't it. I know my question is off topic but I was wondering if you could help me. Thanks

And here I thought the big G had abandoned the Storm! Been jealous of all the nifty voice apps coming out for Android. The app seems to work perfectly on my 9530.

Thanks for continuing to update the BlackBerry Storm! Would love to see a GMaps and GMail (html rendering please!) update.

Any chance we are going to see the results browser from the Google Mobile Apps for the Storm come out as an alternate browser?

RIM isn't giving us any love, an this next statement says it all, Opera is the best browser available for the storm.

The results browser is obviously Google built, I''d love the option to use it as the full time browser.
