Google Search for iPad revampeed
Google chose Monday to unveil a heavily remade Google Search app for iPads (App Store). The new version folds in Google Instant, but its highlight is a much more gesture-driven interface. Results slide in as panes that can be slid back to reveal the search results, and both image browsing and history get special thumbnail browsers to pick them out visually rather than by text.
Inside, the app has in-page searching, a +1 button to share results, and a dedicated apps menu to bring up Google services like Gmail or Reader in their web versions. Instant Previews have made their own appearance in the iPad app.
Any iPad running iOS 4 or later can load the app, which should be available worldwide.
