Google Search for iPhone gets the 2.0 remake, full-screen search and swipes aplenty

Google gave its official search app an iPad remake late last year, and now it’s smaller iPhone and iPod touch devices getting the new UI’s treatment. As of Google Search App 2.0, the smaller iOS devices see a big emphasis on full-screen navigation, with an automatic full-screen mode and a dedicated full-screen photo search making the most of the limited display real estate. You can now swipe back to search results like you could with the iPad, and it’s overall much faster in the app to hop between different search types as well as web apps like Calendar or Gmail. There’s still something in it for you if you’ve already been deep into the iPad port’s interface, as the tablet and the iPhone alike can now save photos directly to the iOS camera roll. You’ll need at least iOS 4.2 to live in Google’s non-Android mobile universe, but those that measure up can leap in through the source link.
