New Google Image Search for iPhone

Google is always hard at work optimizing their services for mobile devices, especially the iPhone. This now includes Google’s Android platform along with their own Nexus One smartphone.

The latest update is to Google Image Search. Taking a page out of the iPhone playbook, there are new features which make searching for images a whole lot easier. Check out what’s new below:

When you do an image search, we find that it is typical that you will look through many pages of search results. So in the redesign of Google Image Search for mobile, available today for iPhone 3.0+ and Android 2.1 devices, we focused on making it easy to quickly see as many image thumbnails as possible:

* The thumbnails are square to maximize the number of images we can get on the screen at one time so you can scan them quickly
* You can swipe to see the next or previous page of results, or tap the large, stationary ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ page buttons
* We optimized for speed so that the images appear quickly when you browse

When it comes to viewing the images, we now make them as large as possible by introducing a special image viewing page:

* The black background emphasizes the image and the buttons fade after a few seconds so you can just see images with little distraction
* Easily browse through the images by swiping from picture to picture

Check out this video of it in action (on a Nexus One):

I’ve tried it out and it works great. Thanks Google!

    I always notice google updates before I read about them. It is so much better now searching images. Thanks Google! Now if only you could stop storing everything we do (creepy).

    Another example of a mobile interface that is superior to the desktop version. I'm at the point that I actually prefer using the internet on my iPhone in many circumstances. I can't wait to get an iPad.
