Google’s Search app for iOS devices has just received a major update with the move to version 4.0.0. First up, users can have an even smarter conversation with the app. First, tap the microphone and then say “OK, Google,” to start. Then, for example, you can ask “What’s the weather like?” and then follow up with “How about this weekend?” Google Now will also inform users when there is an interesting article for their favorite topics, upcoming trips, and favorite authors and blogs. Other improvements include cricket sports cards in Google Now, faster loading of information inside the app, and revamped image results. A universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch, Google Search can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. You’ll need to have iOS 7 or later installed on your device. Before today’s update, the last major revision to the app landed last December. Version 3.2 brought an iOS 7 inspired design, true full-screen browsing capabilities, and smarter integration with the Google Maps app, if installed.
