Google – Search made just for mobile
By Google, Inc.
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?”
Personalize your feed and get notifications:
• Start your morning with weather, news & traffic
• Get updates on sports, movies & events

* requires iPhone 4s or later
What's New in Version 24.0
• Bug fixes and stability improvements
It's fine I guess
Get rid of the "Weather" "NBA" Entertainment" and "Eat & Drink" stuff at the bottom of the search bar. I don't need help searching for things on google, I would be fine if I could turn it, I seem to be hitting one of those stupid buttons whenever I search something. Really inconvenient and pointless. Nobody will ever read this at your giant, heartless corporation so I'm probably wasting my time writing this. If nothing else at least give us the chance to turn it off.
Must-Have App Despite Minor Dictation Issues
This app will cut you off in the middle of your dictated query, or remain listening long after you are done speaking. The workaround is simple enough: tap the query field once to bring up the keyboard and use Apple Dictation for your query.
Despite this minor issue, this is still an must-have app that deserves to be on the front page of your mobile device.
BUG: It won't update with the Gboard keyboard installed. I have to delete the app and then install fresh every time. REALLY annoying.
Perhaps I'm not the target audience since I don't organize my life around Google. It's useful, but only slightly more useful than typing a search in the Safari Address Bar.
If Apple allowed deeper integration it could be great.
