Google Updates iOS Search App

Not satisfied with how well Siri answers your questions? Thanks to Google, there is now another option.

Google has just released an updated version of their iPhone and iPad search app. The new app features improved voice recognition which will help you get the answers you need.

I have not had a chance to try it myself, but I am looking forward to this app giving Siri a run for her money. As much as Apple wants you to think Siri is perfect, that virtual assistant has been shown to have a number of issues. For example, Siri was unable to respond accurately to any requests given in a Scottish accent. Siri has also been out through independent tests which showed that the app is much less accurate than the commercials would have you believe.
