Google has updated its universal Google Search app for iOS devices introducing a complete redesign of the user interface for the iPhone and iPod touch. Designed with an emphasis on speed and simplicity, the new version dramatically improves performance with significantly faster autocompletion of search suggestions and faster loading of results. Users can also now easily see multiple pages with a slide-in panel, use swipe gestures to move back and forth between webpages, search results and search modes and easily locate text within any web page. Image search has also been redesigned to now display a grid view of high resolution images; users can scroll down to see additional results, tap on any image to get details about it or swipe between images and save images to the iOS photo library using a tap-and-hold gesture. Google Search is a universal app requiring iOS 4.2 or later and is available from the App Store as a free download.
