Google Releases “Google Mobile” for iPad (P.S. It’s Ugly)

Google has released an update to its Google Mobile application, making it compatible with the iPad. Guess what, the application seems to really sucks, as it doesn’t take advantage of any new feature of the iPad and only cares about putting the same old iPhone things on a bigger screen.

From the App Store page:

- My Location - avoid typing your current location when searching for nearby businesses;

- Google Suggest - tap suggested web search queries and local businesses that appear as you type;

- Search history - quickly search again for queries you recently performed;

- Vertical search - search Google Maps, Images, News, and Shopping

The very same old stuff. Check out the screenshots after the break.
