Google Updates & Redesigns Search App For iPhone

This morning Google launched version 2.0 of its official Search app for iPhone. The update brought a completely redesigned interface that was inspired by the iPad app.

The design begins with the start screen with new options to sign in, search, and access Google apps. There is also a new Settings shortcut and a new icon to toggle between search results and the search field.

Searches can still be done by typing, voice, or Goggles, however Google says the latter functions are much faster now with the new design.

As for actual search results, controls are now hidden until needed and results are displayed in full-screen. Search results can be emailed or opened in Safari and images from search results can now be saved to the iOS Photos app.

The Google Search app is available in the App Store.
