The Google Mobile App is just like having the well-known search engine in the palm of your hand. Actually, it tries to go one point better. If you don’t have hands available to type in your search terms, and instead have your phone resting on your shoulder, you can hit the voice search button and say it into the microphone.
However, it is touch and go whether the app will understand what you’re saying. For example I tried twice to search for “shoes” and ended up with “news” and “hughes.” I tried speaking faster to see if that worked better and ended up with “kids,” so apparently that is not the secret. However, it recognized “vegetarian” on the first try.
Once you’ve gotten some search terms in, whether they were correct or not, you can easily find them again in the app’s history list simply by touching the image of the magnifying glass at the bottom of the screen. If you want to get rid of it, there’s also an option to clear.
Touch the apps icon and you gain access to all the other facets of Google, such as Gmail and Google Maps. These aren’t exactly part of the app, since it simply connects you to their domains through the Google website, but it’s a very convenient way to get a direct link. This app is pretty intuitive and it loads a lot quicker than it the actual Google.com site, so it’s good for when you need to find an answer in a hurry.
