Google for iOS is updated
Google for iOS has been updated just in time for iOS 8 and the new iPhone models. A post on Google's own Google+ site says that users will now start receiving TV show recommendations based on the new fall season. Other changes include updated transit cards wilth multiple options to get you to work and back home. Google also mde some adjustments to the app which will allow you to receive answers "faster than ever".

If you're familiar with the Google Now cards for Android, you should have no problems figuring out the Google app for iOS. For search, all you need to do is say, "O.K. Google," and ask your question. Need a stock price, or want to know how many meters in a foot, merely ask Google and you'll hear and see a response.

The Google Now cards make sure that you get the information you need, when you need it. From providing you with the traffic on your morning commute, to giving you tomorrow's weather forecast, Google Now is trying to make sure that you're prepared. The app can also send out restaurant reviews, sports scores and other information pertinent to your life, without even asking for it.

The updated Google for iOS in a free download from the Apple App Store.

Hum Thank you, i love this app but only when it works in any screen, if not is useless, imo, like siri or S Voice.

Google rolled out that feature a few months ago so you're basically saying Google Now was worthless before then.

In iOS 7. If I wanted to use "ok Google" I'd say "open google" than "ok Google" and it works. Now I can do that with siri without touching my phone. Basically I find siri to more functioning without having too much guessing from Google. Both are great. I just love how siri functions including follow up requests. Google now is better for searching google though.

My problem with Apple is too many restrictions,and no new innovation. I'm not a fan boy of android or apple but a new tech fan. I don't have to hack my nexus5 to get free music albums,books,movies,and etc. I don't care about price or trends. No real technology person who like innovation would consider the iphone6 innovative. Same old same old
