Android & iPhone users get optimized searches with Google

Android & iPhone users get optimized searches with Google
It’s very unlikely to find some handsets not offering GPS as one of its standard set of features. Location based services have seen a steady increase in usage thanks partly to their simplicity in getting things accomplished. Google is also taking advantage of this concept and slowly integrating search queries from their web site based on your specific location. Fortunately for Android and iPhone users, Google will start offering suggestions based on the phone’s current or last location – simplifying the experience and making the suggestions more relevant. So if you’re stuck in an unfamiliar spot and want to look up the nearest pizza place, you don’t have to put in specific pieces of information to narrow down choices that are close by. In order to take advantage of this new feature, you have to turn on “Save recent locations” and “allow use of device location” under the Settings link on the google.com web page.
