Google announces new iPhone web app

Google has announced the release of a new iPhone web application that integrates the company’s services, such as search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader, and more, into a single, iPhone and iPod touch-friendly interface. Google says that the new application takes advantage of browser technologies like AJAX that allow for Gmail and Google Maps on the desktop, stating, “In supporting these advances in web technology, the iPhone’s Safari browser not only delivers an excellent mobile Internet experience; it enabled our product and engineering teams to create an optimal Google experience on a mobile device.” To access the new application, simply visit on an iPhone or iPod touch.

Darn, I really wanted this functionality, but I have a video iPod.  Guess I’ll have to wait for the iTouch with the bigger harddrive coming next year.

I just watched the google desktop video on my mac and I’m still trying to figure out what it does. The video explained nothing. Anyone want to try and explain the benefits to me?

It’s great, but I can only get this to work with my account, and not my Google for Domains account (which uses my own domain). Maybe soon? Anyone get it to work outside of accounts?

I love it. I use Google Reader for RSS feeds and I like the gmail interface. Very cool.
