Google Search app for iPhone and iPad Version: 2.0.0 is now available with a completely redesigned interface that gives faster results, beautiful full-screen image search, and a simple way to access all Google apps in one place.
The version 2 of Google Search app comes with a significantly faster autocompletion of search suggestions, bringing in search predictions instantly with each letter you type.
You'll also notice that pages now load faster, and checking out multiple pages 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.
"To search images -- just tap the images button at the bottom of the search results page, and the high-resolution images load into a grid that let you 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," said Noah Levin, Interaction Designer, Google Search app.
Finally, the new version has put all Google services in one place for easy access.
