Google Search for iOS

The Good Google Search gives you the power of the company's popular search engine, access to Google apps, Voice Search speeds that top those of Apple's Siri, and Google Now.

The Bad Interacting with Google apps is still a little rough around the edges, with display problems and some lack of functionality. Google Now seems to be hit-or-miss.

The Bottom Line With access to Google apps and Google Now, and Voice Search results that even Siri can't match for speed, this app is a must-download.

Review

Voice Search speed makes this app a must

Editors' note: This review has been updated with new features announced November 5, 2013.

The Google Search app brings the company's many Internet resources to your iOS device, and the recent addition of hands-free Voice Search, along with improving Google Now features and new notifications makes the app even better.

A familiar interface
The app offers a clean layout for searches, with the familiar Google logo on a white background as your home page when you launch the app. Across the bottom you have three buttons to access Google Apps, Voice Search, and Google Goggles, the feature that lets you snap a picture of something to find out more about it, related products, and other information.
