Google Now for iPhone and iPad
Posted: May 1, 2013 by Maja Johnson
Google Now became available for iPhone and iPad as part of an update on the Google Search application.
Google Now represents a new era of smartphone applications. It makes your smartphone know what you want before you ask for it. Google Now is also known as a "predictive search tool". It is just like any other virtual assistant. It learns your preferences and likes while getting to know you more and more as you use it.
Google Now connects to you through your email when you open the Google Search application. It then displays several virtual cards that usually provide information mostly related to you as a user; for example, past search queries. The cards refer to the weather, favorite team, sport scores, nearby placed, currency calculator etc. The point of Google Now is to make your life much easier.
While the Android version of Google Now was integrated into the OS for iPhone and iPad, Google Now is also available as an application. Siri has some serious competition these days with the Spanish Sherpa, and Google Now. Just like Siri and Sherpa, Google Now also has voice control. Users can tap the microphone and ask this digital assistant for anything; like the weather or the next flight to London.
