A faster, simpler Google Search app for iPhone

(Cross posted on the Official Google Blog)

Starting today, when you use the Google Search app on your iPhone, you’ll see a completely redesigned interface that gives you faster results, beautiful full-screen image search, and a simple way to access all your Google apps in one place.

 Search by voice, by typing, or with your camera

Get results, fast When you’re on the go, you usually want to get things done quickly. Autocompletion of search suggestions is significantly faster in this latest version of the app, bringing you search predictions instantly with each letter you type. You'll also notice that results load faster, and checking out webpages is easy with the slide-in panel. Quickly swipe back and forth between webpages and your search results, and swap between search modes like Images and Places with a swipeable menu. Finding text within a webpage is a snap as well; just try tapping the magnifying glass on the bottom menu option on any page.

Easily switch between search modes using the swipeable menu at the bottom
Swipe the slide-in panel to instantly return to your search results


Beautiful Image Search Searching for images will never again be a chore. Tap the images button at the bottom of the search results page, and watch high-resolution images load into a beautiful grid. Browse the images by scrolling down the full-screen grid, or tap on a single image to get details about it and then quickly swipe from image to image. You can also tap and hold an image to save it to your camera roll to use as your wallpaper or share with a friend.


Full-screen image results take advantage of every inch of the screen


Swipe or tap on the edges to move between images.

I don't understand why people are complaining about an google app available for Ios first. Google probably makes more money with ios than android. At the end of the day, it is all about money.

Auto complete of google search is great. It helps many time to find the correct phrase for search.
I am too much happy with it.

I don't know if the google search add-on for the public websites also have auto complete or not.
I wish to use google search on my website.

It sounds fabulous. I am one of the few holdouts that don't have a cell phone, but your apps are getting me closer to getting one.

I've also heard some other fabulous news at another website. www.profitresourcesfranchise.com
