Smaller tweaks improve launch times and image results
Google has updated the iOS version of Google Search to v4.0.0, making several improvements to bring it in line with the Android app. One of these is a more fluid voice command system, capable of using context cues to simplify extended requests. Google offers the example of following up "What's the weather like?" with "How about this weekend?"
In Google Now, iOS users will also see cricket scores, and article links related to favorite topics, authors, and blogs, as well as upcoming trips. These can be turned on or off in the app's Settings menu. Both Now and Search as a whole should load faster, and Google has improved the design of image results pages.
The app is a free download, and runs on iPhones, iPods, and iPads with iOS 7.0 or later.
