What's New in Version 5.5.0
Bug fixes and performance improvements
Overblown in size (as are all the other mobile apps nowadays)
These mobile apps are getting over blown out of proportion. 65MB for a search app? I remember the days when this app was 10-15MB at most.
What's going on? Full desktop PC applications aren't taking this much space. Although it works fine most of the time, it works the same as when it took less than 20MB.
These mobile apps are taking too much space and are getting simply too big.
I love this app. I am surprised that more people aren't using it. My only complaint is that when you search for an address or place and it transfers over to google maps, 5 out of 10 times it will not find the location. Most likely a problem with Google maps. The accuracy of the voice recognition is why the app is great. Other than the voice feature it's just the same Google.
Better than expected
When I got this app I expected it to be another Siri when you say something as simple as "Hi Siri" and it turns into "I will find a nearby gas station" But this is no Siri. It actually picks up what you say pretty quickly and gives good results! However my one complaint is it deletes your window if you close it for a few minutes. But not a big enough problem to delete it.
