Google has begun a Wi-Fi sponsorship campaign for 2011, to promote their universal iOS app. All iDevice users accessing the wireless network of Logan International Airport in Boston are now being offered 30 minutes of free Wi-Fi access in exchange for downloading Google’s free app.
It’s a very simple deal, and is presented to the user when accessing the airport Wi-Fi. It’s not being enforced very strictly, as once you accept, you’re just being sent to the app’s download page.
Your Internet access will be activated even if you don’t actually download the app.
With Google Mobile App you can search Google quickly using your voice, pictures, and location.
- New! Google Goggles – use pictures to search the web. Goggles recognizes things such as landmarks, books, wine, artwork, and logos.
- Search by voice – speak your queries in natural language. Simply hold your iPhone to your ear and say your query.
- My Location – avoid typing your current location when searching for nearby businesses (e.g. “pizza” or “starbucks”)
- Google Suggest – tap suggested web search queries and local businesses that appear as you type
- Search history – quickly search again for queries you recently performed
- Contact search – search your phone’s contacts.
- Vertical search – search Google Maps, Images, News, and Shopping
