Google has just updated its Search app for the iPad. The new version offers a complete redesign with much more visual appeal and new features. Interactions are designed to take advantage of the iPad’s large screen and touch interface.
As soon as you start typing in the input box, Google Instant starts to display relevant results so that you will be able to get better prediction of your intended search with fewer keystrokes.
You now have a choice between reviewing the search results as the classic list or switch to a visual slide presentation, navigable by swiping. When doing an image search you are now presented with a default image carousel, where you can swipe left or right between the images.
Of course, Google has integrated new social features in the app, with a +1 button prevalent in the results. You can grab the updated Google Search app through iTunes or on your iPad. Note that Android tablets are not yet getting the same amount of love from the Search application, but looking at demo video, after the break, we hope it will land on Android soon as well.[Google Mobile Blog]
