    Google Search for iOS

    Platform: iOS

    Price: Free

    Google has released version 2.5 of its search application for iOS, which looks like the Google Now functionality found on Android Jelly Bean.

    An improved voice search is marked as the  headlining feature of this update. Whether it is good enough to draw users away from Siri remains to be seen.

    The travel booking company has recently updated its iOS, Android, and Windows Phone applications.

    The app contains analogues of Kayak's website that allows the user to find flights, hotels, or hire a car.

    Users who purchased an Android handset from Telstra will have seen this application and its widgets pre-installed on their device.

    The application provides access to BigPond News, Sport, Weather, and can also track your mobile data usage.

    We find this app useful for its data usage and weather widgets.
