Even if you're a hardcore fanboy and all your life revolves around Apple, we're sure that you often have to resort to the search engine developed by its archenemy (don't tell us you use Bing or Yahoo). Google offers us an application to improve the integration of searches on our mobile device and if we've got an Android APK available, why not download the iOS version as well?
We're obviously talking about Google App, the application to carry out direct searches without needing to open your browser. Thanks to the latter, you'll be able to find whatever information you need straight away, based on the different online services offered by the company, from its search engine to its translator, including the location of restaurants or the search of images.
Integration of Google Now
But not only does it offer us the possibility to make classic searches by typing in the query, as it also integrates into Google Now, the virtual assistant of the guys at Mountain View with which you can receive all sorts of information by voice, similarly to Siri.
For such purpose, just say OK Google and ask your question, establish your reminder or carry out a query about the traffic status. It's a very practical and functional application that will help you to improve your productivity when using your iPhone.
How you use Google with an improved iOS integration.
These are some of the functions that you can make the most of with this app installed on your phone:
- Make searches on the Internet.
- Translate words or sentences to over 100 languages.
- Search for images.
- Find nearby places such as restaurants or hotels.
- Find cheap flights.
- Check the weather forecast.
- Receive traffic alerts in real-time.
This application allows you to configure a feed to provide you with the information you want whenever you want it. Furthermore, as you use the application you'll gradually start receiving results that suit your needs better as it learns how you use it.
