Google app — Search made just for mobile

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The best of Google in one app. Say “Ok Google” and find everything from nearby restaurants to the calories in cheesecake. Google also shows you the info you need before you ask, like updates on your favorite teams and traffic alerts.
Talk instead of type:
• Say “Ok Google” then ask a question*
• Google will speak the answer aloud
Ask Google to help you do things:
• “What are good restaurants nearby?”
• “Where is my package?”
• “Remind me to call mom at 5 pm.”
Get Google Now cards and notifications:
• Start your morning with weather, news & traffic
• Get updates on sports, movies & events

Wish I had NEVER updated this time. Supposedly specifically for Apple iOS 9. Now when I touch the screen, Google pops up with "Copy/Open" so I have to touch the screen AGAIN to OPEN the item. Shades of double clicking with a mouse! Plus the app crashes repeatedly and/or says the Internet is down when it is not. Also when attempting to complete a form onscreen, it frequently freezes causing me to start over OR go to my PC to fill out the form. This "update" is a complete failure!!!! How convenient that I cannot find a place on the Google site where I can tell THEM. Google, hurry up and fix your fix!!!!!
The above was two updates ago. STILL not good. At least two or three times a day Google tells me the Internet is unavailable and the search cannot be completed but NO other apps are having an issue. Terrible app right now plus they purposely make it almost impossible to contact them directly to tell them about it. Pretty arrogant.
Update: Woo Hoo... They fixed it. I think. Still not sure why they can't TEST their updates first but...
This app has suddenly become useless since it freezes every time I try to type or talk. Thanks. I'm so sick of all the constant "updates" on apps that don't fix anything and make the apps worse than before. Seems stupid to me that they can't TEST their own updates before sending them out to customers who don't even want them. If this app isn't fixed in 2-3 days I will be deleting it. No sense in taking up space I don't have for an app that doesn't work.
Please roll back!!!!!
And PLEASE test your updates before putting them out there, and don't "undo" previous fixes!!! I remember several years ago, whenever I would go to Google from the car, the bluetooth would mute the radio, even though I wasn't using the microphone (it never understands me!!). Then for at least a year or two, it wasn't doing it, and now it's BACK!! Annoying. Mute only if the microphone is clicked!!! I saw several complaints on the Apple support site that this started happening in April, but I hadn't updated iOS, so I don't think it's Apple's issue.
