Google Debuts First Mobile App for iPhone

By Jason Ankeny

A staggering volume of iPhone 3G-related news and announcements hit the wires once Apple's App Store opened yesterday. Perhaps the biggest name jumping on the iPhone bandwagon is Google, which announced the Google Mobile App, the web services giant's first native app for the iPhone and iPod touch devices.

According to a post on the Official Google Mobile Blog, the free app promises a single text box enabling users to search through their contacts and the mobile web--with the first keystroke, the app begins offering typing suggestions, website suggestions or access to previous search results, and over time it builds a unique user profile based on recurring behaviors.

Google Mobile App also capitalizes on the My Location feature to determine the user's present whereabouts and show nearby business and points of interest. Other Google mobile products are aggregated via an "Explore More" button. [FierceMobileContent]
