Google Mobile App for iPhone – now with voice search
The new version of Google Mobile App was expected to be released last Friday but because of an unknown reason it had a little delay, and was released yesterday.

The application has been available in ‘App Store’ since August 28, 2008 and as its name suggests – it gives quick access to the famous search engine. The updated version has new appearance and additional feature – voice search. Whenever you like to use this search option, you pronounce keywords or phrases, the phone records your voice and send it to a processing server. In just a few seconds, you see the results on the screen. It sounds really nice and convenient, especially if you do not feel like using the on-screen keyboard.

And, indeed, it is. During our tests we firstly tried some single words, for example “Obama”. Through Wi-Fi, the exact results came after 4-5 seconds. Our next test included more complicated phrases like “night pictures of Tower Bridge” and again we got the right results. All in all, we are satisfied with the new feature because it works well and saves time. If you are still wondering how it looks like – watch the video demonstration.
