    Google Mobile App Updated; Now Allows You to Search Your BlackBerry


    Today Google released an improved version of Google Mobile App for BlackBerry. What's so great about this new version is it allows you to search for email and contacts on your BlackBerry. This certainly makes the app more useful. All you have to do is type, or speak, the name, or a phrase from an email, and Google Mobile App will search your contacts and email.

    The improvements don't end there. You can do more than simply search your email or address book. You can also quickly reply, and forward to a message. Google Mobile App really does a nice job of integrating into your BlackBerry. If you type the first few letters of a name, and press the corresponding button, you can easily call, email, or SMS the contact you are searching.

    Another new feature is the ability to use your BlackBerry's WiFi connection to access the internet. Of course, if you would simply rather Google Mobile App search the internet, instead of your device, you can turn off Phone Search in the options screen. Be aware that Google Mobile App, however will not work for the Storm.

    I just tried it and it doesn't seem to search my phone, only the web.
    Anything I should be doing?
    I set options to search phone.

    I set options to search phone.
    I use a Storm 9530 os: 5.0.0.419 and had no trouble searching my phone.

    I have my spouse contact as "wife" on my phone, so here is a search for wife



    I highlighted the next line down "Phone 1 contact / 34 messages" as shown below.



    I clicked this highlighted line, and it shows all entries that reference "wife" as shown below. I skipped past my wife contact to save the trouble of masking her phone number, but it is working well for me.

    Since this is brand new...I would suggest checking with Google. I'm sorta suprised that it worked at all on the Storm, as I was under the impression that it was not available for the storm.

    I have a storm2 and it was not available for me.

    Does the voice search work ? Just wondering.

    Yes voice input also is working for me as well.

    One draw back I don't like so far, I am not able to use this in landscape mode. Also my keys will not swipe down if I want them to.
