While at jury duty all day I had a chance to check out the Google Mobile Blog. Turns out the Google released a very slick new application for BlackBerry. It essentially is a one stop shop for all Google BlackBerry applications except for Google Talk. You can download and access all of the other current Google applications from within this app. It also replaces the useless Google Updater application that even Google stopped using.
So what exactly will you get?
- Fast Google search – enter queries without waiting for a browser to load
- Search history – easily access and amend your previous queries
- Google Suggest – complete queries with less typing
- Easy access to Google products for your phone – click once to download and install our applications for BlackBerry, and get immediate access to our web-based services
- Google Apps support – get direct links to your Google Apps Calendar and Documents/Spreadsheets (select Menu, Options, Use Google Apps Domain: yes, and then enter your domain name)
- Update alerts – learn about new versions of downloadable Google mobile applications and upgrade with just one click (Google Mobile App replaces Google Updater for BackBerry)
I was having some issues installing other Google applications from within the application but it worked with some fiddeling.
You can pick up the new Google Mobile App at m.google.com from your Berry. Let us know what you think of the new app and if you find any new features!
