Google updates its Search app for iOS, makes it even faster

After the total overhaul that the Google Search app for iOS got a couple of months ago, it has become way nicer looking and easier to use. However the feedback that the company has been getting about its performance has obviously been less than flattering.

Well, Google engineers have obviously taken notes and today introduced a new version that addresses the issue. The app has been sped up by up to 20%, which should dramatically improve responsiveness and thus the overall user experience. To achieve this, the company has axed the “Just Talk” by default so if you were using it you would need to activate it manually from the settings.

The new version of the Search app for Android also brings improved look and feel for search results. The developers have increased the font size of the results and have increased the area where you need to press to hit a link, beyond the link itself. This should help usage on the smaller-screen iOS devices – iPod Touch and iPhone.

Google Search app is available for devices running iOS 3.0 and above and you can download it from yours from the App store immediately. Here’s a link immediately.
