Good But Needs Work
by BlakeyBoyJ990 on 2019/06/17 04:30
So the app is good but it needs some work because of the new update 12.3.1 on iOS you can’t put images on your camera roll which is really annoying.
Disappointed
by EPT1 on 2019/06/17 01:34
Why does Gmail always start at “all in boxes” when it doesn’t cover “al mail “. I have go to “ all mail “ every time. It wasn’t always this way. Very disappointed with whoever set it up this way.

Don’t get me wrong this is a great app but I just don’t like how I can’t turn off my history I try pause my search history but it never works did it before it worked but now it doesn’t but maybe that’s the wrong thing.
What happened?!?!
by Loveberry55 on 2019/06/15 03:22
I google everything and anything, and this app made it super easy and fast for my curious brain. However, lately it is too slow to use. I am very upset. I hope it gets fixed soon.

Google Won't Let Me Have a Beer
by The Top Taco on 2019/06/13 23:53
It all started when my sister Laura made her awesome chicken tacos and I wanted to have a beer with them, but we had just been to the beach where I stepped on a bee which gave me a totally huge allergic reaction. So I took two Benadryls. After putting an IPA in the freezer (hoppiness is happiness) to chill to have with my tacos, I thought to myself, "Self, you should find out if it's ok to have alcohol with Benadryl." So I googled it, and Google straight up, no apologies, no consideration for my feelings, told me I can't have my beer. Bad google. Such condensation. I will now give a bad review to Benadryl, La Jolla Shores, and to bees. You may have told me the truth, Google, but not the truth that would make me and my tacos happy. Stupid google.
Images are aweful
by DCOMICSYOUROCK on 2019/06/13 23:28
So when I would google an image and tap on it, it would zoom into the image and surround it with black. I could then screenshot it immediately and be done. Now they’ve changed how it works and this was 90% of the reason I even use google. I know that this was a legal thing that they had to change but it still hinders my usage and effectiveness of the app to a point where I’m filled with rage because I now can’t simply use google images to get an image
One bug to fix
by Kissy34 on 2019/06/13 12:36
I keep getting notifications that I don’t want. When I go into the app and turn them all off, they only stay off until I close out of the app. When I go back into the app, they are all enabled again. I keep getting notifications I don’t want. But I want to keep them on in my iPhone’s settings so that I can verify that it’s me logging in to Chrome. Very helpful and useful app! I’ll give my fifth star back when this bug is fixed!

Is "good" good enough ?
by TellTaleTorres on 2019/06/13 07:00
Every time i open the app to search something it ALWAYS take around the 10 secone range just for anything & everything to become tappable. Its like the app always freezes for a few seconds upon opening. That greatly ruins the experience & feeling of curiosity of when i try to google something. & ALSO & lastly, the Discover feature & stories are Amazing however the topics of the stories are hit or miss. For ex. I enjoy the one piece anime & the pirate crew is called the Straw Hats.. ill then get many MANY stories about the topic of straw hats you wear on your head. which i care nothing about but i cant click "not interested in straw hats" since i am. Just not those. Or an article about Miley Cyrus comments about hip hop. The article is ABOUT miley cyrus Opinion but its under the topic of hip hop..since its what the REAL topic addresses or mentions..i am not interested in Miley cyrus however the "not interested" Option is titled "not interested in hip-hop" there are many more examples exactly like that. You need a better algorithm or something to better label, order, & place these stories Because there will be MANY stories im uninterested in placed under a Topic that i genuinely care about & its a nuisance Because it clutters & ruins the user experience. its a 2 star experience but im placing it as 1 star so it'll be viewed easier & hopefully addressed
My feed
by Kobey77 on 2019/06/13 04:33
How many times, exactly, do I have to say I’m not interested in a topic for it not to show up in my feed? Seriously. Other than that seriously annoying thing, the app is lovely
Good design but pictures fail to save
by bassoon babe on 2019/06/13 01:09
I've been using this app instead of safari for a while, but there's been a new bug that won't let me download Google images to my camera roll. I either have to screenshot them, lowering the quality, or open them in safari. Please fix this bug, because I otherwise really love this app
Google lens
by KitMarlowe on 2019/06/13 01:06
I can not access google lens. I’ve done everything to fix this but to no avail. There’s no camera option to access on the search bar. I don’t know if it’s the new update. But I’ve actually downloaded Bing bc they have the search bar camera option available to me.
The updates ruined this app
by Litvuke on 2019/06/12 21:57
As other users have stated, we can't enlarge photos by clicking on them anymore, and we can't save photos. I absolutely hate this, because I used the app mostly for quickly searching up and downloading images—the interface is much nicer than Google on safari. Can y'all at least give us an option to switch back or something???

Translate Menu Bar disappeared....
by Pgnite on 2019/06/12 00:05
Why is it that updates tend to break things that are working before? After the most recent update, the translate menu bar, that always appeared at the top, disappeared. I even check my settings and translate option was turned on. So please correct it ASAP!!! I depend on this option to translate articles in another language.
Picture/image view is awful since update

Most annoying App ever
by TerynMerc on 2019/06/10 23:08
I’ve mostly loved this app. I use it to check news, current stories and search for many things. The most annoying part of this app is you could be on perfect internet, every page loads quickly. Yet! This app will have issues updating stories on your feed. There are many news app that feeds constantly update, but this one gives up and you are forced leave the app and come back later. 1 star till it’s fixed.
Terrible search results
by Greenvino on 2019/06/10 22:46
I typed “instructions to adjust cargo area floor on 2016 Rav4 hybrid” and got nothing but car reviews and dealership sites. I’m looking for a web site I’ve accessed before with instructions, but the app’s results will not show it to me. Five pages deep and still nothing. Fix the algorithm!
Collected Items disappear
by LA Living on 2019/06/10 22:07
My main issue I have with this app is my favorite pages constantly disappearing. I could mark a page that I would like to come back to later and I go into the little bookmarks or “collections” tab, and it’s not there. It’s annoying especially when I save articles I want to read later or pages I visit frequently only to open up my collections and be greeted with a “your collected items appear here” message. Yeah I know where they’re supposed to appear. I would just like them to actually be there when I look.

Make sure you don’t put in large amount of work and the app just crashes. Put in small amounts of sentences at a time
Google App Review
by jdhdhdjdjr on 2019/06/09 07:05
This app is amazing. I love being able to search anything and everything at any point in time. My one problem which I’m sure everyone is aware of, is that sometimes, the search results a completely subside what I searched, and it really annoys me.
Hate Google Lens and error “Check back soon”
by fraustypawz on 2019/06/09 00:43
Hate Google Lens and error “Check back soon” That Google icon for the Google Lens is almost always in the way. I’ve tapped in to that more times than I care to say, unfortunately. Need a thinner finger like the alien in the movie, “ET”. Going to 2nd page for more stories and what do I get? The message “Check back soon”. That’s like having a friend who always has to get the last word in and then all of a sudden, one day - they don’t. Strange 🤪
Don’t know what happened!
by Ninatea99 on 2019/06/08 19:59
The app keeps freezing and sometimes doesn’t load. Tried rebooting iPhone and router to no avail. Happened after last app update and I’m not happy since I use google as my main web search engine.

Great app, would only change UI
by CzernAttack on 2019/06/08 15:00
The UI/layout is a tad sloppy for my taste, but other than that I love this app. It’s a great way to follow specific interests, particularly athletes where I don’t want to follow the whole team, rather just the one player. Great app, hope it doesn’t change too much and definitely hope it never gets discontinued!

App enjoyment
by mattchip on 2019/06/07 15:04
I enjoy the app, I think the app should show news stories based on the interest settings for that individual person. There is no significant change at this time with this app, what would be more interesting to know more about is my interest in musical theater.
Good app
by Joseph399 on 2019/06/07 00:13
It’s a good app and does what I expect it to, except one thing. The discover keeps getting turned on every day even though I keep turning it off. Pretty sure it’s a glitch but it’d be appreciated if it was fixed

AUTO TRANSLATE No longer works!
by jeffstokely on 2019/06/05 12:25
Please fix this. Auto translate for websites has stopped appearing. Normally for me there’s a prompt when going to a website that’s not in English. It’ll ask me if I want google to auto translate, I hit yes. This prompt no longer shows up. I checked my settings, rechecked, reset the translate, and nothing. Then I deleted the app, reinstalled it, and nothing. Repeated the steps again and still nothing. Please fix this. Auto translate is the sole reason I use this app. It was so very helpful, now it feels unnecessary to even use the app.
Don’t like new updates
by jdjbabjcnd on 2019/06/05 03:11
I absolutely hate the new updates. When I’m trying to get new backgrounds for my phone, how do you expect me to do so when google doesn’t even let you download pictures anymore! All you can do is copy it, and even then, it doesn’t save to your camera roll! Highly disappointed with these new updates :|
Great app. Staple for any device.
by bennybaconburger on 2019/06/04 20:05
One feature I wish was in the app was the 'open in News' button in the share menu. I'm not sure if Apple controls the shortcut for it and keeps it in Safari, or if Google has the ability to add the shortcut. Google sometimes recommends stories that I don't see in the News app recommendations. The News app is much less cluttered to read (also no annoying ads or crappy mobile site design). Or, Google could make the UI from the feed much less cluttered and make a serious preference for AMP webpages shown in the feed.
Great app! Please fix FB share freeze
by SwarthWeber on 2019/06/04 19:32
This is a 5-star app, but I gave it a 4 to draw attention to the fact that it freezes every time I share an article to Facebook. The share works, but it freezes on the black screen with the check mark. Fix this, and I’ll rate 5 stars.
Please keep the format simple to use
by Aku Master of Masters on 2019/06/04 17:46
This app is one of the most useful things I have on my phone, however making the simple task of saving an image a multi step process does nothing but frustrate the user. Please return it to being just a simple process like just holding your finger down on the image and getting the option to save. I like that I go through my browsing history but I advise that you should have a “clear history” button in a place that’s easy to notice.

by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay Google, you’ve been on thin ice for a while but with this new update is where I draw the line. I loved the Google app and have been using it religiously as my search engine for 5+ years. There have been many changes since I first started using the app, mostly good, but some bad. I use google a lot for reference images for art and now you can no longer save pictures directly from images. It was bad enough you took away the image previews, and then changed the way you save photos, but now you can’t even save them! It sends you to the website, but for many things on mobile it either doesn’t work or forces you to sign into a website to get to the photo. Sometimes it will take you to a website that just doesn’t even work! I will probably stop using the Google app after today and switch to another unless you fix this. It makes the app unusable for me.
Since it updated yesterday it doesn’t work.
by Libbertybell on 2019/06/04 00:18

Internet Needs Limitations
by 🦄SparklyRainbowUnicorn🦄 on 2019/06/03 17:03
I had Google on my device as soon as i got it... until my parents took it away, and for good reason too! I'm warning you now: if you have a young child who is interested in inappropriate things, don't download Google. I am literally disgusted at how the Internet actually has everything, no kidding, and if you search it, it pops up. There need to be limitations on what can be on the Internet and what cannot. Because I saw some things I shouldn't have seen, and even blockers to control what pops up don't even work. So I'm just warning you, if your child is curious about inappropriate things and wants to search them... don't download Google. If you haven't yet, don't.

Too much of annoying
by Nobunaga 1 on 2019/06/03 14:18
I know that Google wants to boost the security by using this app. But this policy doesn’t work well for me. I work in a very secure building where my phone can’t even catch the signal. We rely mostly on wired network. Whenever I need to verify things using the phone, I have to walk out. I saw a few old devices which I used to link them with my Google account. Today I tried to delete these devices but it didn’t work. I just hope that Google re-enable email authentication for me. I don’t do social networks . I am and expert so I don’t need any one telling me ‘cheap’ suggestion . So I don’t need Google assistance. I only need this app because Google tells me to use it when signing in from a new device. But it turns out that even this basic thing is too annoying.

by Fleamarie21 on 2019/06/02 15:06
I do not like the way the app shows results. Before, when I looked up Images, I just got images and I could tap them to make them bigger and just scroll through without showing the similar results and websites. When I look up anything at all, I get websites and suggestions mixed in with what I’m trying to find. I’ve even taken Bing just to be able to sort out search results in a more simplified way. I love Google and, based on my history, I use it 30-40 times a day. I want the old Google back!

Can’t zoom into pictures on image search now
by Angierozm25 on 2019/06/01 15:12
I’ve been using the google app now for probably 5 years and have always been happy with it until now. They changed their image search so that clicking on an image doesn’t pull the image up and allow you to zoom in. Now if I want to zoom into images, I have to download the image into my camera roll. Since it’s an app for a mobile phone, typically people need to zoom in since images are about 2-3in wide max, so I’m not really sure why they changed their app to make it more inconvenient.

I hate the new image section

I wish I could give a minus 5 star! I really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really hate the new image section. Cumbersome!!!
Google lens is not available on this app

Despite the description Google lens is unavailable for the iPad. It is NOT on this app OR in the Google photo app.

Dysfunctional Image search
by N•O! on 2019/05/30 03:40
Why did you have to change the image search? I used to like searching for new artwork on google but now if i want to see it without things in the way i have yo go to a different website that most of the time doesn’t even have that image on it and/or it is buried so far back that I don’t have hours fo go hunting for it through all the stuff i’m not interested in. Or i go to the web site and it’s not there anymore. Can you just put it back the way it was, when it worked properly? Thank you.
Can We PLEASE Save Pictures To Our Photos Again?

As long I could remember, Google is the best app ever. But we nee dto save PHOTOS AGAIN.
Is "good" good enough ?
by TellTaleTorres on 2019/06/13 07:00
Every time i open the app to search something it ALWAYS take around the 10 secone range just for anything & everything to become tappable. Its like the app always freezes for a few seconds upon opening. That greatly ruins the experience & feeling of curiosity of when i try to google something. & ALSO & lastly, the Discover feature & stories are Amazing however the topics of the stories are hit or miss. For ex. I enjoy the one piece anime & the pirate crew is called the Straw Hats.. ill then get many MANY stories about the topic of straw hats you wear on your head. which i care nothing about but i cant click "not interested in straw hats" since i am. Just not those. Or an article about Miley Cyrus comments about hip hop. The article is ABOUT miley cyrus Opinion but its under the topic of hip hop..since its what the REAL topic addresses or mentions..i am not interested in Miley cyrus however the "not interested" Option is titled "not interested in hip-hop" there are many more examples exactly like that. You need a better algorithm or something to better label, order, & place these stories Because there will be MANY stories im uninterested in placed under a Topic that i genuinely care about & its a nuisance Because it clutters & ruins the user experience. its a 2 star experience but im placing it as 1 star so it'll be viewed easier & hopefully addressed
Love My Google
by 2peppi on 2018/09/17 02:10
I’m a 72 woman and I believe Google has drastically improved my life. I was born with an imperfect memory and ADHD, which damaged my self-esteem. As a result, I never had the courage to take my first college course until I was 31 years old. Then, I absolutely fell in LOVE with learning. When I learned to use computers and discovered Google, I used to excitedly tell anyone with a question, JUST GOOGLE IT!!! I said this long before hearing that as a common phrase. I often tell friends that I received a Master’s Degree via Google. I love the instant knowledge. While reading a book, and don’t know what an author is describing, I Google it, giving me not only a definition, but a visual IMAGE as well. I could give countless examples of why I love Google, including the ease of using Google Maps to find most any location. Combining Google with my iPhone has truly enriched the quality of my life. They are my favorite inventions since the washing machine!!!
I liked this app, not so much now
by Nahikuan on 2019/04/04 12:56
This was a great app, and I used it frequently to search for anything I needed to know quickly. Now, with the new updates, it’s made it harder for me to look up my recent search history and redirects me to all these webpages I looked at. I don’t want to to see that, I just want to know the term I searched and then decide what pages I want to look at. I wish it would just go back to how it was originally. It seems with every update, the app just because less and less efficient. It was fine, then the updates made it worse. It’s harder to eliminate pages that I’m not interested in from the stories section. Before, I could just swipe and the page/ topic wouldn’t be recommended to me anymore. If it’s working, why does it need to be fixed? Update: Now, when I delete my history it deletes all my recent app history as well. It never did that before. I lost all my recent searches. I also don’t understand why it only saves some of the app’s search history and not others. This only started happening when the app was “updated”. This update is even more terrible than I thought.
Easy To Use
by Doduble on 2017/11/02 11:35
Love the app. It is easy to use and incredibly smart, with a great voice detection and intuitive results. I love how it's even offered, what I mean is you can get chrome in an app and it's more like a full internet page/provider and has all the bells and whistles but is a little more cumbersome to use (nothing wrong with that because it's a full web port), anyway it's like a full Survace provider and I use it for more detail "web trips" and task. Which makes this app more of a quick and really efficient "quick search" portal when I have a Curiosity or restaurant info as walking downtown and deciding on a whim to try a new restaurant, or even watching a show on TV or my favorite news program in the morning and one a quick answer to something. Bottom line, it's just a really cool and useful app that I regularly use everyday for a lot of daily task and quick info.
My Go-To
by sassy4mp on 2018/03/05 16:21
I have loved Google and have used it exclusively for years. I find it’s search results are much more.....cleaner if u will. Idk I can’t stand Bing etc and the first thing I do when I get a new IPhone is download google. I DO have to say they MUST do a better job w security. Idk much abt all of that stuff & won’t claim to, BUT I do know I have recently been hacked and my account was “Frozen” n I had to call this # to speak w someone from Microsoft etc n it was all a SCAM. The next day my feed came up w an article abt how google missed the boat on security and how thousands (+) of ppl were being hacked bc of something google did or didn’t do....etc. They said it was a specific weakness if u have and use google...I won’t lie I switched to bing after it all happened. I only lasted using that a day or two b4 I had to come bck to google. To me it’s the best. I will be much more careful tho from now on 🤷🏻‍♀️
Google worst case of customer service
by LynleyGirl on 2017/11/10 21:04
Zero stars—- I went into their app a total of 4 days in a row. I had an issue with something hanging on my account, which was carrying over into another app. So I went into fix my profile. Well, you can’t go in without their annoying computer assistant hounding you to bundle everything you have into all google products, & one big conglomerate- so they can accumulate & mine even more data on you to sell to other apps they don’t own yet. Went the next day, after I told it, & adjusted my settings to delete all activity from the history- cloud- which I didn’t know they kept on me. As far I know, I’d given only one company permission for that 🍎. They deleted nothing. Not one line! The bot tolls me it would affect their other apps too much. Well, I just got angrier & ... by the 4th days problem, I went in, the bot changed my longtime yahoo account to a google account, all the settings, Created a million apps & add-ons while I shouted no & stop & tried to get out of the app. Waited on hold for live help today for 30.. them they hung up on me. Hatred!
no voiceover supportve
by tacoburn70 on 2018/11/11 09:13
how am I supposed to use this app at all without voiceovers support? when I type in a search field, the search results aren’t accessible. I put my finger over the search results and voiceover does not read them at all. I mean this is the only app I have ever seen it’s not VoiceOver compatible. that really puts google reputation way down in my book. All of us have reported it and Google has done nothing about it. They don’t even respond to it. That shows to me they don’t care about the blind community at all. Microsoft has apps dedicated to us yet googles basic apps aren’t accessible that’s pretty sad. I would use this app every day if it were accessible, but since it’s not, I have no choice but to never use it, removed it from my phonepalmer they come out with updates all the time, But this is one thing that’s never fixed, and I know others have reported this problem also get Google continues to ignore us.
Bring back the “swipe to hide” for news stories
by JayyTownn on 2018/05/23 18:19
I love the app, but after a recent update I noticed I could no longer swipe away stories/cards on my homepage. I didn’t realize how easy or convenient this feature was until it was gone. Now when I’m done with a news story, I have to click the three little dots in the corner of the story and press “Hide this story.” It’s a bit tedious and repetitive to do this for every story/card I don’t want or have already seen, so I’ve started just ignoring the stories altogether (since I’ve seen/read them all and would rather just let them pile up than to go through each individual story/card and click “hide story” just to get it off my homepage). It was so much easier and faster when I could just swipe it away instead. Please bring pack the ‘swipe to hide’ function for news stories on the main page.
A step backwards
by Mister_Director1921 on 2019/04/09 12:14
I love this app and use it all the time, I have since 2011 when I first got a smart phone. Back then the images section could only produce blurry images and they weren’t good quality. Then one day someone fixed that and the images not only got significantly better but you could also easily save photos to your phone from google with a few simple taps. Howevera few weeks ago for some reason someone said “ya know what the new update is missing? That low quality 2011 feel, can we go back to that?” And now the images take forever to load and you can no longer save images to your phone. I’m not sure if it’s due to copyright or whatever but it’s seriously a huge step backwards in my eyes and I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels this way. The app still works great when I need to search for something but it’s 2019 and your new update is from 2011. This needs to be fixed.
Was great for pictures, then went downhill.
by jacksonhawks99 on 2018/11/02 15:41
I have been using this app for a several months to save photos for editing and research for school through the image search. But all of a sudden when I click on a photo, it takes me to the page it is on, instead of just the photo; which is time consuming. It’s not a huge inconvenience, just rather annoying. I used to really enjoy this app, but now it’s more of a struggle to use it for my projects. Another issue is that I thought, “Well I can’t see the image fully but I can still save it from the search screen, right?” Wrong. Now I have to go to the website the picture is on just to save it to my phone. And most of the time it’s not even good quality. I’m pretty disappointed in this move that Google has made involving their image search engine. Please fix this problem so I can continue to enjoy Google and everything it has to offer.
Missed opportunity
by 1fastKAR on 2018/05/29 15:54
I suspect this app is another example of Google abandoning a product. It was a great idea that has lost all momentum. The search functionality is as good as you’d expect, but nothing superior to just opening a browser. It also serves as a convenient interface for two factor authentication to my Google account. My primary intention for installing the Google app was to leverage it’s convenient/customizable news feed functionality. Unfortunately it has fallen woefully short for the task. First Google eliminated all swiping functionality; next, useless, irrelevant, and even annoying “trending” stories began cluttering my feed; now, ‘Hide this story’ has stopped working! The same ‘hidden’ stories appear over and over and over in my feed - totally ignoring my input! Furthermore there seems to be a total lack of any AI tailoring the feed to my interests. I’m left with no better option than to abandon this app as a news feed altogether. I used to love it, now I hate it...
A few big frustrations, but still better than Safari
by cb7182 on 2018/07/16 15:47
I like this app so much better than Safari. It is more organized and user friendly, however it does have a few issues. The most annoying thing is the Google bar at the bottom of the screen. If I need to click something at the bottom, it does not register. It just gives me the Google bar. Its incredibly frustrating to be unable to make a selection on part of the screen. The other thing is that sometimes, my pages will randomly reload and I cannot figure out why. It happens when I am away from the app for 20 minutes and when I leave the app for under a minute to respond to a text. It’s frustrating having to scroll all the way back down. Other than those two things, I think the app is great and will continue to use.
Bait and switch shopping...
by Cherie Buckingham on 2018/08/07 05:13
Disclaimer: Rating may change after product is received but I don't know! So I was searching for a MacBook and decided to use the app to do so. I opened the app, searched MacBook, clicked the 'shopping' tab and found what I thought was an amazing offer for a specific MacBook. I click the link to go to view the details of the item and it changed... DRASTICALLY! I took screenshots but want to warm people before they think they are getting the originally advertised item when in fact, they're getting a lesser and 'different than described on Google shopping app' product. I am posting this strictly based on reading about an advertised item and going through the Google advertised/provided link to purchase. I did purchase the item but will return with a 100% thorough review once I find out if it actually was a hair and switch or if the linked page simply wasn't updated to reflect the originally offered item specs (I hope the latter of the two is correct honestly but we will see.)
Results aren’t loading beyond 1st page
by adnamamaharg on 2018/08/19 23:53
I’ve used the Google app for years and have always loved it. Recently (today), I noticed that when I search for things, when I try to go to the next page, it just reloads the same page so that I essentially can’t get past the first page of results. Sometimes it appears that it even shuffles the results on the first page when it does reload, making it look like it may actually have loaded the second page, but no. I’ve closed & restarted the app, as well as searched for different items using the different categories (All, News, Shopping, etc), and I still can’t get beyond the first page of results. Then I’ll search in Safari and get tons of pages of results, all of which load without incident. Please resolve, as I prefer the app which is generally faster, better formatted and easier to navigate than the Google page through Safari.
One Tiny problem.. but love it!
by Lilaliona77 on 2017/12/09 04:03
I’ve been using this google app for as long as I can remember because personally, I find it less cluttery than safari. I typically don’t like having a search history on because it’s just too much to clear out once it accumulates and google has allowed me to do that seemlesly for the longest time, but now I’ve come across the issue that I have to manually switch browse history off every single time I open the app, because the search I’ve done from one prior time, is still on there. I hope it’s just a bug and can be fixed because I don’t want to have to manually switch over every single time I use it, where as before, you did it once and you were set and good to go up until this most recent update. Thank you google!
Love the app, one problem though.
by Ggggggggggggggggg BOY on 2017/11/15 17:05
I’ve been using this app since I’ve first owned a smartphone, many phones before the one I have now. I love the sleek interface and the voice activation function. What I love most, however, is the personalized cards on the home page. I read those daily, often multiple times a day; lately, I’m sad to say that my cards are not working well, though. They will frequently be unable to load the article, and no matter if I refresh, go on WiFi, go to cellular, even kill the app and reopen it, they still won’t open. The only method I’ve found that works is copy-pasting the URL into another browser, but that makes for slow reading. Hope this can get fixed in the future.
New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.
by MeghanSmith917 on 2019/03/29 02:14
New google image search is TERRIBLE! The sole reason I search for images is to see IMAGES, and only images. I do not want to see the text, or a ton of white space. I liked how the old google search app showed images only. I purposely used this app when searching for images as chrome doesn’t display image searches the same. Chrome shows the text. But now, not only is the text required but am unable go full screen with an image (and hide the text when tapping on it or rotating my phone). This is awful for viewing images because phone screens are not that big and now it only shows up on half the screen. Please bring back the old version or at least make it an option that is easy to select on the screen (not hidden in layers of menus within settings). This is extremely frustrating and disappointing
So helpful, but the unwanted cards need to stop.
by Ryleigh K on 2018/11/04 15:47
I love using Google for anything. It helps with so many things I need to do whenever it comes to research for a school project or just looking up the news. What is starting to really bothering me is the repetitive “custom” cards that show up in my feed. The day before writing this, I was talking about Chris Stapleton with my mom since she likes his music. Less than 5 mins later I get an article about him in my feed. Coincidence or not? This has happened multiple times. I always get stuff in my feed that I don’t even like. For example, I’ll get something about Elon Musk. Do I really want to read something about him? No. I always hit “not interested”, but it always pops up. I like the feed feature. I just wish it was more customizable.
Losing pages.
by kokokaylee on 2018/03/28 20:19
If I’m on a page and I have to either step away so my phone goes to sleep or switch screens, it resets to the homepage search bar. Not all the time, but enough that it’s incredibly irritating. I’ll have to scroll all the way back down to where I was (I love reading comments on articles, so sometimes it’s a lot of scrolling) to continue reading. This has only become a problem in the last few updates, I believe since the overall look has changed. Sometimes the page I was on will be completely gone from the history as well, saying I have no browsing history when I clearly do, as I was JUST reading something. Then I have to remember what I searched and the title of the article. Apps are supposed to be streamlined, quick & beneficial. I might as well read on a computer. Fix this, please.
I’m disappointed
by Amy Sweetwater on 2018/11/02 20:47
I know people may not have a problem with this but my google is being annoying right now. So usually when I would search up images, it would show some other images once I click on it. Then I have the option to save and that. Now every single time I click on a picture, it sends me to the website on where it’s from. I don’t want the website, I just wanna see the picture and save it on my camera roll. Now it’s annoying how long it takes me save an image. I’m always seeing the website with its picture. I sometimes like the other photos under that image I search up. I sometimes wanna save them. Now? it takes me at least two-four minutes just to save a picture. I just want my old google back :(
Life's too hard without GOOGLE !
by apitt61 on 2018/10/01 11:34
Yep, that's right, and I'm over 60 and didn't want to learn how to operate a computer. I didn't want a cell phone. Then I kept watching my grandchildren with all these gadgets, so they taught me about iPhones and then........... GOOGLE. It was great. It was so easy to download GOOGLE. Whenever I needed to know something I didn't have to type anything, I just ask GOOGLE. Now there is no need to drag out any books , it saves time. Anything you need, shopping, learning, keeping journals, needing help with anything, just ask GOOGLE. GOOGLE will answer all your questions and take you where you need to go. It was so simple. Then for my birthday my husband bought me an iPad. O my, I can do anything with the help of GOOGLE!!😍

by Tfffrdee on 2018/07/25 13:00
The only search engine I trust and has been my go to since the conception of the term. I’m really loving the personalized news feeds. As someone who intentionally avoids today’s unreliable news sources, especially from social media apps, the google news feed has been a welcome addition to my routine. I no longer have to miss out on reading articles I may be interested in because of my choice to not login to FB. Instead I often find articles I’m interested in through my google feed in between searching for things. Google Search is one of my top 5 most used apps. Their reliability and commitment to being the best in my opinion has hands down beat any other apps. I’m sticking with google for the long haul.
Good as Expected but...
by mcgrottydanny1 on 2018/05/17 13:57
This app basically does exactly what you’d think a Google app would do. For that reason, it’s a fine app. I deleted this app though because I didn’t see the advantage of keeping it when I could just use a mobile browser to search on Google. I wouldn’t even think twice about downloading this app again if it incorporated just 1 specific thing... the first is that I wish this app had a reverse image search feature similar to Pinterest’s. Google already has a reverse image search option for non-mobile users (PC, Mac, etc.) in the browser, but the Google app doesn’t have this function for mobile use. So I would think that a reverse image search right on your mobile device would be brilliant. I would probably delete my Pinterest app if the Google app had this function.
Google window on the bottom of screen
by Wanting a fair game on 2017/10/09 23:50
I like using this app, however, I really dislike the google window at the bottom of the page. It’s in the way when I need to make a selection at the bottom of the screen. I know how to make it smaller so I can make a selection. It’s just to much work just to see the bottom of the screen. Most times I just give up and click open page in Safari so I don’t have deal with it. Its also slightly annoying because it never goes away and I don’t see an option to close it. The only time it goes away is when I scroll up which does me no good if I want to look at the very bottom of the page. It would be much better if it was hidden at the top of the screen and I can just swipe down if I want to see it. At least give an option to close the box.
My Google App
by Lady6ug on 2018/09/08 02:26
I absolutely love Google! Google has helped me so many times I couldn't begin to count. If my grandson, whom lives with me, comes to me with a question I tell him to go & google it most of the time. Sure I answer a lot of his questions, but I think it's good for him to look it up sometimes. Some people don't like the idea of Google having so much of our information. Some things I really don't either, but, on the other hand, Google is " my right hand man" appt, I need to go to, reminders on so many things, call someone for me, text someone for me, taking a note for me, etc., etc., etc. What would I do without out this app? I'd mess up on a lot of things, especially at my age. I'm over 55 yrs. of age. Thank you !
Link to maps usually fails
by Wax and refuel on 2018/06/20 20:31
Generally a useful app but Google has lots of bugs to fix! A search often brings up a map, and when I click on the map within the Google app, it gives "no results". Very annoying and obviously wrong, since if you open another map app, including Google maps, there is what you were looking for. Google, fix this! Similar issue with other searches like yelp. If you search for an establishment and the result you click is a yelp website, the Google app doesn't take you to the information you want. Instead you get a series of links and you have to reenter the search on the yelp app. There's obviously a better way, and things could be more seamless. These have been long running problems and I'm surprised Google isn't on top of this. Seems like it should have been relatively easy to fix.
You Better Think Things Through a Little !
by I Press!! on 2018/06/01 14:06
I enjoy using Google as my search engine! However, I’m getting a little fed-up with the clear Liberal Bias of your Company!! You need to remember that your “Darling Democrats” lost the last election not because of the phony “Russian Collusion “, but because they ignored and insulted The America that exist between the “Coastal Elites” of the East and West Coast!! Your referring to the ideology of the Republicans in this Nation as “ Nazism” is disgraceful, but most assuredly, purposeful on your part!! You don’t have to sell-out to the millions of conservatives in America who happen to be a large part of your customer base, but you don’t have to constantly show your distain for us either!! Someday, your liberal love affair might just come back to bite you in your Corporate Butts!!! Bob Gilbert
The Interface is Getting Cluttered
by gtaboo on 2017/11/03 03:41
It was nice having the streamlined layout of the app several versions before, and with every update version, the interface loads up with more buttons of questionable interest, and an excess of information that would be best left hidden or condensed. The tab feature is also getting cluttered with excessive numbers of saved pages after simple searches. I do not need a new window every time I want to view a new image, I just want to browse in peace. This is a petty and personal issue that doesn’t impede the app’s usefulness, so I will leave this with a decent rating, but I would greatly appreciate it if options for less screen filler were available in future updates. Thanks to whoever may see this.
Very disappointed
by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay Google, you’ve been on thin ice for a while but with this new update is where I draw the line. I loved the Google app and have been using it religiously as my search engine for 5+ years. There have been many changes since I first started using the app, mostly good, but some bad. I use google a lot for reference images for art and now you can no longer save pictures directly from images. It was bad enough you took away the image previews, and then changed the way you save photos, but now you can’t even save them! It sends you to the website, but for many things on mobile it either doesn’t work or forces you to sign into a website to get to the photo. Sometimes it will take you to a website that just doesn’t even work! I will probably stop using the Google app after today and switch to another unless you fix this. It makes the app unusable for me.
Once critical app now unstable under iOS12
by dj jon bates on 2018/12/23 07:46
I have used this app since its early days, a majority of my experience was excellent: on an iPad Pro, it was a godsend in split-screen mode when I needed to pull content from several sources into my primary apps by dragging or pasting. Once iOS updated to its current release, this is the least stable and highest-lag of Google’s iOS offerings (several of which also suffer under iOS12). I didn’t understand when the ‘tools’ option was suddenly deactivated on image searches, but tolerated it because the app overall was still strong. Now, I use this app only when I can afford to have it freeze or crash. Scrolling through saved item collections is impossibly laggy, with several seconds elapsing between a touch or drag and the app responding — when it does scroll, it stutters and freezes. I have a top-tier current-gen iPad Pro with 70% of internal storage available, and would hope Google values stability and performance over feature-adds that aren’t ready for public release. Please fix this, Google: an app that is fragile and unreliable is an app uninstalled. I’ve invested in the enterprise products you offer and rely on them daily (if not hourly) to do my job.
What’s up with images
by Just wants to upload photos! on 2018/11/02 02:20
I love google. Use it everyday. Also use the images everyday to reference things I read for a visual. Have always been able to click on image to enlarge it to see it better, because let’s be real, viewing a page of all the photos in their tiny little squares on a smartphone is just hilarious and bad for the eyes! All day the app has been normal. Tonight, on the other hand, I click on a photo to view and it directs me straight to the website. In which case 80% of the time you can’t find the photo or still can not enlarge to see. What the heck gives?!?! It’s not the end of the world, but it very well could be end of the app for me. If I wanted to scroll the original websites and view photos there, I would never head on over to the images section. It’s highly frustrating when you click the image to view and instead wait for the webpage to load. Please please fix.
Could be an amazing app but...
by MusicalDragon350 on 2018/06/30 18:45
I really like this app, but lately I have been pretty frustrated with it. This wasn’t happening at first, but now when I open the recently visited websites tab after I’ve been using the app to try and navigate to another page it won’t go to the page I want. It is happening fairly often too. It’s not that big of a deal, because I can get there by either typing it into the address bar or closing out of and restarting the app (sometimes this doesn’t work though). But it’s a real pain and can prevent me from setting aside a page or make me lose my progress on something like it just recently did. The mishap is actually what prompted me to write this review. If this problem were to go away the app would get a full 5 stars from me.
Swipe keyboard
by JenningsGraham on 2018/01/13 14:44
The reason I have this app is for the swipe keyboard. This may be the single greatest feature of this app, as my major complaint about iPhones has always been the lack of one. However, since the latest update (11.2.1), there has been quite a lag between me finishing a word and it being entered onto the screen. If I type too fast, words sometimes won't get displayed as they get"typed over." This is extremely frustrating and completely ruins the point of swipe (fast texting), and therefore, the app (in my particular case). It may be an Apple issue, since it has only been happening since the most recent update, but there may be something you guys can do about it. This is a 5 star app, but since the update has been a 2 star app. Please fix this issue. (I have an iPhone SE if that matters at all) Thanks
Good App, only one problem
by Blazing Heart on 2017/12/29 22:22
I’ve been getting this pop up lately on Google and Google Chrome that basically says “Congratulations, you have been selected...” and all that. It’s a scam. It’s really consistent and it won’t go away even after clearing my cookies on my phone. It doesn’t happen on Safari and only on Google products on my phone. I tried deleting the app and I even reset my phone and nothing has worked. One way you can improve is to add a feature to Google that stops frequent pop ups like that because this is getting out of hand. That’s the only problem I have with it, everything else is fine. And trust me, it’s not just me who is dealing with all of this. I hope this will be solved soon.
Google business
by foote properties on 2019/05/13 15:21
I am a local google guide and enjoy being able to review businesses and seeing what others have said before I use a service or company myself. I believe the future of google maps will allow us to do 3D VR tours of businesses and add them right on google street view to be able to walk right inside the front door and look around the store like if your were 3D touring a new home to purchase. I have already started capturing virtual tours of rentals I manage. And look forward to the day that they can be added on google maps to walk inside if houses for rent or sale and businesses that allow virtual tours to be available. Watch a wait.
The new update...
by Dyleeb527@mlg on 2018/11/02 03:13
I use Google almost everyday... sometimes to look up images. Now when I go to the images and click on them, instead of getting a close-up of the image it sends me to the website where it’s from. This is extremely annoying because I just want to see the image, not to go to the website. You should change it back to the way it supposed to be! Before, you could just tap on an image and get a close-up of it and if you wanted to go onto the website you could tap the image a second time. It actually gave you a choice! Please, change it back to when we could actually have a choice because honestly it’s really annoying the way it is now.
Fix History and Images
by Hello Person03 on 2019/03/23 02:37
The way you delete and look at your search history along with Google images has recently been updated, and it needs to go back. First off, the best feature of your Search History, the ability to delete all of it at once, has been removed and replaced with a day by day basis which is much more difficult to manage. Also, the way you view images when you search has been changed and looks atrocious. It’s clunky, and you can no longer look at images in full screen. It appears to be a terrible attempt at trying to make it look like the desktop image search. Please, please, bring back the old History and Images search, as they are superior and easier to use than what has been added.
What happened
by Tina633 on 2018/06/04 23:21
Google has been the word that changed social media as well as the internet almost as soon as Google hit the internet. We no longer just "browsed" the internet or "searched", we now "googled" and soon just about everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. To google became the very personification of searching for info on the internet. Not sure what happened but I just deleted google as it has gone wonky. At first I thought it was just my iPad but when all the other apps are working as well as they ever did...except for google, it had to be the app, or google. Can't give it five stars as a result. It seems even google has issues. Just doesn't seem as reliable as before.
Very good app, however only one problem
by Chicken6042 on 2018/02/06 02:03
I use google all the time for researching in school homework and useful website etc. However, sometimes I search a topic up. Let’s say I searched up “How to cook waffles.” Then I wanna search something else up, let’s say I wanna search up “how to cook eggs” now the problem here is when I search a second thing it should say on the search bar that I searched “how to cook eggs” but for some reason instead of saying that. It shows “how to cook waffles.” And if I search something else up that topic will show but “how to cook waffles” will still be there. Now it’s not a big deal but it just gets really annoying when it happens.
Um, photos automatically go to links now?
by Invaderrain on 2018/11/02 17:48
I loved using google but now it’s odd to use because I wanted to look up photo references for a project of mine and now every time I tap on an image it goes to the website and sometimes you have to dig on some of those websites it takes you to just to find the darn image. It’s odd considering the fact that if you use the actual google website on a laptop the images don’t do this but now on phones they decided that it would be a good idea? Not a very good one at all. Also, when you’re trying to look up arguments on both sides and it only shows more left side leaning even though I’ll specifically look up the right view because I need both sides for an actual good political debate for my government class.
Need to be able to turn off articles and trending
by PiratePremtice on 2017/12/17 20:32
I love this app for its core features, including weather, sports, and keeping up with appointments and traffic. I ABSOLUTELY do not want to see 1000 articles about politics on my google app. Yes you can turn a story off one by one, but you need an option to be able to turn off articles altogether. I also abhor you telling me what’s trending when I’m about to search for something. If I’m trying to google a recipe, why should the first thing I see be the latest garbage out of Washington? Seriously who thought this up? Some people might want that but I know how to find the news when I want to see it, and I don’t want to see what the internet is thinking about during EVERY google search. This is not a feature for me and needs to be able to be turned off!
Can’t delete history
by Gobro gopro on 2018/06/04 18:32
You used to be able to easily click a button that said “delete history”. They’ve updated it and you cannot do that anymore. Now you have to individually delete the search history from each previous day, and it doesn’t even work! I deleted my history from today, yesterday, and 2 days ago and then voila the history from today that I just “deleted” is right back in front of me. If googles fixes this or brings it back to the way it was before where it was much better, I’ll change my review Update: way better now that they’ve fixed it. Love the app.
I feel hostage to this latest version
by ANYTHING BUT THIS APP on 2019/05/11 03:46
Somehow, someway, and without my consent,my google search app for iPhone was “upgraded” to the latest “beta” version recently. I noticed the difference immediately on 5/1/19. The entire app displays search results in a chaotic, frenzied, disjointed fashion that is infuriating. Search on Google images?? Ha! It’s enough to cause an instant migraine! What the heck is going on? All Google image search results now display in some bizarre quasi-ad format. Desperate, I literally called Google, which, I didn’t even know was a thing, searching for answers. After 35 minutes of bouncing around I was told I was selected for some beta test version of the new Google search. I was told there is no way to revert back to the prior version. Perfect. Very good Google. I ordered vanilla ice cream Google, but feel free to force-feed me the double chunk peanut butter ice cream that I am highly allergic to. Wow.
A little buggy
by Oktoberfest914 on 2018/09/16 03:38
I’ve used this app for many years, but over the past year or so it has got buggy. First, switching to incognito can take literally a minute or longer. Why? Same for switching back from incognito. Then when searching it will all of a sudden blank out the bottom half of the page where you can no longer see any search results. You have to research to see all results again. Finally, when opening the app it takes several seconds to begin a search. You’ll begin typing only to discover it wasn’t ready and see just the last few letters of your search result showing in the search box. Weird. Why does it take so long? These issues don’t occurs with the Chrome app, so what’s up Google?
Horrible app update
by Alxndr9 on 2019/05/11 02:14
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what happened to this app but it used to be amazing. I used this app to replace safari. Until one stupid update. For some reason there is no history anymore in the “recent searches” anymore. Witch is stupid. If I didn’t want to show my history, that’s what incognito is for. I cannot find a way to change it and no one is willing to help because they don’t know what I’m talking about. Another problem if the images tab. You cannot go full screen on photos anymore. Which was very helpful for zooming in. Another problem is the constant freezing and crashing. I have never had a problem with this app. EVER. I physically cannot use it for more then 5 minutes without the app needing to be restarted. Very disappointed. And I used to use google for literally everything.
Love it but needs a fix.
by blake everette. on 2018/11/02 09:56
I love the google app. In fact I use it more often than I use safari. The app is quick it’s simple and it is very convenient. HOWEVER, upon using it this early morning, I noticed a change. When I go to type in something, for example “cute cats”, it will of course bring up the links and websites with related photos. Although that is helpful, when I move my finger to the right and tap on images the images are brought up in a gallery as usual. The problem lies where when I am scrolling through I tapped a photo to see it closer, which is how I’m used to doing. But instead of that picture popping up, when I tapped it or any image, it just jumped and brought me to the actual website. Super frustrating.
MAJOR ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED
by CaTa613 on 2018/06/22 00:37
Hey google, Lemme start by saying hat I love your app. It’s efficient, smart, and the best search engine! I just have one major issue that needs to be fixed. When I look up TV shows, what really helps is that I can see the exact time and channel a TV show will be airing on TV. Instead of browsing my TV guide for hours, this is way more useful. However, it appears that you have removed that feature and it has become incredibly frustrating and annoying. That’s one of the main reasons I loved the app, because of the “TV guide.” So can you please bring it back? That will allow me and many others to continue enjoying the app at its fullest. Thank you and please fix this.
UwU
by bazookatagz on 2017/10/02 02:48
so i know this app isn't that great for searching, it's slow, eats up data ofc and ultimately is a pale imitation of a browser, but my heart is so warmed by the fact that every night i get a pop up weather notification that tells me the temperature changes that i felt literally COMPELLED to come give a five star rating. i know, it's people like me that make this system a joke, but they've got four stars already. they do impress me, because i'm couch surfing and definitely don't wanna spend a night on the street when it's snowing or raining, or after a 20° drop, and they do provide a pretty direct, accurate service that most other apps can't.
Very user friendly
by Prof_Siracha on 2017/11/03 05:26
I love, love, love the google app! It never leaves my home bar! The app creates a personalized web/news feed that keeps me updated on things that matter most to me. Everything about app, from the layout to the feed keeps me going back here to look things up instead of safari. However, I always find that google is better for searching up quick facts, such as definitions and numbers, rather than opening websites. Other than that, I strongly recommend buying this secure and very useful app (much better than other search engine apps, a lot easier to use and much simpler)!

Google Won't Let Me Have a Beer
by The Top Taco on 2019/06/13 23:53
It all started when my sister Laura made her awesome chicken tacos and I wanted to have a beer with them, but we had just been to the beach where I stepped on a bee which gave me a totally huge allergic reaction. So I took two Benadryls. After putting an IPA in the freezer (hoppiness is happiness) to chill to have with my tacos, I thought to myself, "Self, you should find out if it's ok to have alcohol with Benadryl." So I googled it, and Google straight up, no apologies, no consideration for my feelings, told me I can't have my beer. Bad google. Such condensation. I will now give a bad review to Benadryl, La Jolla Shores, and to bees. You may have told me the truth, Google, but not the truth that would make me and my tacos happy. Stupid google.
Images are aweful
by DCOMICSYOUROCK on 2019/06/13 23:28
So when I would google an image and tap on it, it would zoom into the image and surround it with black. I could then screenshot it immediately and be done. Now they’ve changed how it works and this was 90% of the reason I even use google. I know that this was a legal thing that they had to change but it still hinders my usage and effectiveness of the app to a point where I’m filled with rage because I now can’t simply use google images to get an image
One bug to fix
by Kissy34 on 2019/06/13 12:36
I keep getting notifications that I don’t want. When I go into the app and turn them all off, they only stay off until I close out of the app. When I go back into the app, they are all enabled again. I keep getting notifications I don’t want. But I want to keep them on in my iPhone’s settings so that I can verify that it’s me logging in to Chrome. Very helpful and useful app! I’ll give my fifth star back when this bug is fixed!

Is "good" good enough ?
by TellTaleTorres on 2019/06/13 07:00
Every time i open the app to search something it ALWAYS take around the 10 secone range just for anything & everything to become tappable. Its like the app always freezes for a few seconds upon opening. That greatly ruins the experience & feeling of curiosity of when i try to google something. & ALSO & lastly, the Discover feature & stories are Amazing however the topics of the stories are hit or miss. For ex. I enjoy the one piece anime & the pirate crew is called the Straw Hats.. ill then get many MANY stories about the topic of straw hats you wear on your head. which i care nothing about but i cant click "not interested in straw hats" since i am. Just not those. Or an article about Miley Cyrus comments about hip hop. The article is ABOUT miley cyrus Opinion but its under the topic of hip hop..since its what the REAL topic addresses or mentions..i am not interested in Miley cyrus however the "not interested" Option is titled "not interested in hip-hop" there are many more examples exactly like that. You need a better algorithm or something to better label, order, & place these stories Because there will be MANY stories im uninterested in placed under a Topic that i genuinely care about & its a nuisance Because it clutters & ruins the user experience. its a 2 star experience but im placing it as 1 star so it'll be viewed easier & hopefully addressed
My feed
by Kobey77 on 2019/06/13 04:33

The updates ruined this app
by Litvuke on 2019/06/12 21:57
As other users have stated, we can't enlarge photos by clicking on them anymore, and we can't save photos. I absolutely hate this, because I used the app mostly for quickly searching up and downloading images—the interface is much nicer than Google on safari. Can y'all at least give us an option to switch back or something???

Most annoying App ever
by TerynMerc on 2019/06/10 23:08
I’ve mostly loved this app. I use it to check news, current stories and search for many things. The most annoying part of this app is you could be on perfect internet, every page loads quickly. Yet! This app will have issues updating stories on your feed. There are many news app that feeds constantly update, but this one gives up and you are forced leave the app and come back later. 1 star till it’s fixed.
Terrible search results
by Greenvino on 2019/06/10 22:46
I typed “instructions to adjust cargo area floor on 2016 Rav4 hybrid” and got nothing but car reviews and dealership sites. I’m looking for a web site I’ve accessed before with instructions, but the app’s results will not show it to me. Five pages deep and still nothing. Fix the algorithm!
Collected Items disappear
by LA Living on 2019/06/10 22:07
My main issue I have with this app is my favorite pages constantly disappearing. I could mark a page that I would like to come back to later and I go into the little bookmarks or “collections” tab, and it’s not there. It’s annoying especially when I save articles I want to read later or pages I visit frequently only to open up my collections and be greeted with a “your collected items appear here” message. Yeah I know where they’re supposed to appear. I would just like them to actually be there when I look.

Google App Review
by jdhdhdjdjr on 2019/06/09 07:05
This app is amazing. I love being able to search anything and everything at any point in time. My one problem which I’m sure everyone is aware of, is that sometimes, the search results a completely subside what I searched, and it really annoys me.
Hate Google Lens and error “Check back soon”
by fraustypawz on 2019/06/09 00:43
Hate Google Lens and error “Check back soon” That Google icon for the Google Lens is almost always in the way. I’ve tapped in to that more times than I care to say, unfortunately. Need a thinner finger like the alien in the movie, “ET”. Going to 2nd page for more stories and what do I get? The message “Check back soon”. That’s like having a friend who always has to get the last word in and then all of a sudden, one day - they don’t. Strange 🤪
Don’t know what happened!
by Ninatea99 on 2019/06/08 19:59

Great app, would only change UI
by CzernAttack on 2019/06/08 15:00
The UI/layout is a tad sloppy for my taste, but other than that I love this app. It’s a great way to follow specific interests, particularly athletes where I don’t want to follow the whole team, rather just the one player. Great app, hope it doesn’t change too much and definitely hope it never gets discontinued!

App enjoyment
by mattchip on 2019/06/07 15:04
I enjoy the app, I think the app should show news stories based on the interest settings for that individual person. There is no significant change at this time with this app, what would be more interesting to know more about is my interest in musical theater.
Good app
by Joseph399 on 2019/06/07 00:13
It’s a good app and does what I expect it to, except one thing. The discover keeps getting turned on every day even though I keep turning it off. Pretty sure it’s a glitch but it’d be appreciated if it was fixed

Even if you clear cookies, websites know you’ve visited before even if you change WiFi networks. So it appears that google is aiding ad trackers.
AUTO TRANSLATE No longer works!
by jeffstokely on 2019/06/05 12:25
Please fix this. Auto translate for websites has stopped appearing. Normally for me there’s a prompt when going to a website that’s not in English. It’ll ask me if I want google to auto translate, I hit yes. This prompt no longer shows up. I checked my settings, rechecked, reset the translate, and nothing. Then I deleted the app, reinstalled it, and nothing. Repeated the steps again and still nothing. Please fix this. Auto translate is the sole reason I use this app. It was so very helpful, now it feels unnecessary to even use the app.
Don’t like new updates
by jdjbabjcnd on 2019/06/05 03:11
I absolutely hate the new updates. When I’m trying to get new backgrounds for my phone, how do you expect me to do so when google doesn’t even let you download pictures anymore! All you can do is copy it, and even then, it doesn’t save to your camera roll! Highly disappointed with these new updates :|
Great app. Staple for any device.
by bennybaconburger on 2019/06/04 20:05
One feature I wish was in the app was the 'open in News' button in the share menu. I'm not sure if Apple controls the shortcut for it and keeps it in Safari, or if Google has the ability to add the shortcut. Google sometimes recommends stories that I don't see in the News app recommendations. The News app is much less cluttered to read (also no annoying ads or crappy mobile site design). Or, Google could make the UI from the feed much less cluttered and make a serious preference for AMP webpages shown in the feed.
Great app! Please fix FB share freeze
by SwarthWeber on 2019/06/04 19:32
This is a 5-star app, but I gave it a 4 to draw attention to the fact that it freezes every time I share an article to Facebook. The share works, but it freezes on the black screen with the check mark. Fix this, and I’ll rate 5 stars.
Please keep the format simple to use
by Aku Master of Masters on 2019/06/04 17:46
This app is one of the most useful things I have on my phone, however making the simple task of saving an image a multi step process does nothing but frustrate the user. Please return it to being just a simple process like just holding your finger down on the image and getting the option to save. I like that I go through my browsing history but I advise that you should have a “clear history” button in a place that’s easy to notice.

by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay Google, you’ve been on thin ice for a while but with this new update is where I draw the line. I loved the Google app and have been using it religiously as my search engine for 5+ years. There have been many changes since I first started using the app, mostly good, but some bad. I use google a lot for reference images for art and now you can no longer save pictures directly from images. It was bad enough you took away the image previews, and then changed the way you save photos, but now you can’t even save them! It sends you to the website, but for many things on mobile it either doesn’t work or forces you to sign into a website to get to the photo. Sometimes it will take you to a website that just doesn’t even work! I will probably stop using the Google app after today and switch to another unless you fix this. It makes the app unusable for me.
Since it updated yesterday it doesn’t work.
by Libbertybell on 2019/06/04 00:18
Since it updated yesterday everytime I try to loop up something it never loads. I’ve tried everything I could think of from deleting it and redownloading it, going incognito, etc. I just want this fixed. Going to safari for now.

Internet Needs Limitations
by 🦄SparklyRainbowUnicorn🦄 on 2019/06/03 17:03
I had Google on my device as soon as i got it... until my parents took it away, and for good reason too! I'm warning you now: if you have a young child who is interested in inappropriate things, don't download Google. I am literally disgusted at how the Internet actually has everything, no kidding, and if you search it, it pops up. There need to be limitations on what can be on the Internet and what cannot. Because I saw some things I shouldn't have seen, and even blockers to control what pops up don't even work. So I'm just warning you, if your child is curious about inappropriate things and wants to search them... don't download Google. If you haven't yet, don't.

Too much of annoying
by Nobunaga 1 on 2019/06/03 14:18
I know that Google wants to boost the security by using this app. But this policy doesn’t work well for me. I work in a very secure building where my phone can’t even catch the signal. We rely mostly on wired network. Whenever I need to verify things using the phone, I have to walk out. I saw a few old devices which I used to link them with my Google account. Today I tried to delete these devices but it didn’t work. I just hope that Google re-enable email authentication for me. I don’t do social networks . I am and expert so I don’t need any one telling me ‘cheap’ suggestion . So I don’t need Google assistance. I only need this app because Google tells me to use it when signing in from a new device. But it turns out that even this basic thing is too annoying.

by Fleamarie21 on 2019/06/02 15:06
I do not like the way the app shows results. Before, when I looked up Images, I just got images and I could tap them to make them bigger and just scroll through without showing the similar results and websites. When I look up anything at all, I get websites and suggestions mixed in with what I’m trying to find. I’ve even taken Bing just to be able to sort out search results in a more simplified way. I love Google and, based on my history, I use it 30-40 times a day. I want the old Google back!

by lemony beatz on 2019/06/01 18:03
Every time this app gets an update it just keeps getting worse and worse it’s like you guys aren’t even listening! First of all fix the image search so you can actually screenshot a picture. Also stop making the search history so complicated. I just want to clear my search history but now it feels impossible. Please fix this!!!
Can’t zoom into pictures on image search now
by Angierozm25 on 2019/06/01 15:12
I’ve been using the google app now for probably 5 years and have always been happy with it until now. They changed their image search so that clicking on an image doesn’t pull the image up and allow you to zoom in. Now if I want to zoom into images, I have to download the image into my camera roll. Since it’s an app for a mobile phone, typically people need to zoom in since images are about 2-3in wide max, so I’m not really sure why they changed their app to make it more inconvenient.

Dysfunctional Image search
by N•O! on 2019/05/30 03:40
Why did you have to change the image search? I used to like searching for new artwork on google but now if i want to see it without things in the way i have yo go to a different website that most of the time doesn’t even have that image on it and/or it is buried so far back that I don’t have hours fo go hunting for it through all the stuff i’m not interested in. Or i go to the web site and it’s not there anymore. Can you just put it back the way it was, when it worked properly? Thank you.

Is "good" good enough ?
by TellTaleTorres on 2019/06/13 07:00
Every time i open the app to search something it ALWAYS take around the 10 secone range just for anything & everything to become tappable. Its like the app always freezes for a few seconds upon opening. That greatly ruins the experience & feeling of curiosity of when i try to google something. & ALSO & lastly, the Discover feature & stories are Amazing however the topics of the stories are hit or miss. For ex. I enjoy the one piece anime & the pirate crew is called the Straw Hats.. ill then get many MANY stories about the topic of straw hats you wear on your head. which i care nothing about but i cant click "not interested in straw hats" since i am. Just not those. Or an article about Miley Cyrus comments about hip hop. The article is ABOUT miley cyrus Opinion but its under the topic of hip hop..since its what the REAL topic addresses or mentions..i am not interested in Miley cyrus however the "not interested" Option is titled "not interested in hip-hop" there are many more examples exactly like that. You need a better algorithm or something to better label, order, & place these stories Because there will be MANY stories im uninterested in placed under a Topic that i genuinely care about & its a nuisance Because it clutters & ruins the user experience. its a 2 star experience but im placing it as 1 star so it'll be viewed easier & hopefully addressed
Love My Google
by 2peppi on 2018/09/17 02:10
I’m a 72 woman and I believe Google has drastically improved my life. I was born with an imperfect memory and ADHD, which damaged my self-esteem. As a result, I never had the courage to take my first college course until I was 31 years old. Then, I absolutely fell in LOVE with learning. When I learned to use computers and discovered Google, I used to excitedly tell anyone with a question, JUST GOOGLE IT!!! I said this long before hearing that as a common phrase. I often tell friends that I received a Master’s Degree via Google. I love the instant knowledge. While reading a book, and don’t know what an author is describing, I Google it, giving me not only a definition, but a visual IMAGE as well. I could give countless examples of why I love Google, including the ease of using Google Maps to find most any location. Combining Google with my iPhone has truly enriched the quality of my life. They are my favorite inventions since the washing machine!!!
I liked this app, not so much now
by Nahikuan on 2019/04/04 12:56
This was a great app, and I used it frequently to search for anything I needed to know quickly. Now, with the new updates, it’s made it harder for me to look up my recent search history and redirects me to all these webpages I looked at. I don’t want to to see that, I just want to know the term I searched and then decide what pages I want to look at. I wish it would just go back to how it was originally. It seems with every update, the app just because less and less efficient. It was fine, then the updates made it worse. It’s harder to eliminate pages that I’m not interested in from the stories section. Before, I could just swipe and the page/ topic wouldn’t be recommended to me anymore. If it’s working, why does it need to be fixed? Update: Now, when I delete my history it deletes all my recent app history as well. It never did that before. I lost all my recent searches. I also don’t understand why it only saves some of the app’s search history and not others. This only started happening when the app was “updated”. This update is even more terrible than I thought.
Easy To Use
by Doduble on 2017/11/02 11:35
Love the app. It is easy to use and incredibly smart, with a great voice detection and intuitive results. I love how it's even offered, what I mean is you can get chrome in an app and it's more like a full internet page/provider and has all the bells and whistles but is a little more cumbersome to use (nothing wrong with that because it's a full web port), anyway it's like a full Survace provider and I use it for more detail "web trips" and task. Which makes this app more of a quick and really efficient "quick search" portal when I have a Curiosity or restaurant info as walking downtown and deciding on a whim to try a new restaurant, or even watching a show on TV or my favorite news program in the morning and one a quick answer to something. Bottom line, it's just a really cool and useful app that I regularly use everyday for a lot of daily task and quick info.
My Go-To
by sassy4mp on 2018/03/05 16:21
I have loved Google and have used it exclusively for years. I find it’s search results are much more.....cleaner if u will. Idk I can’t stand Bing etc and the first thing I do when I get a new IPhone is download google. I DO have to say they MUST do a better job w security. Idk much abt all of that stuff & won’t claim to, BUT I do know I have recently been hacked and my account was “Frozen” n I had to call this # to speak w someone from Microsoft etc n it was all a SCAM. The next day my feed came up w an article abt how google missed the boat on security and how thousands (+) of ppl were being hacked bc of something google did or didn’t do....etc. They said it was a specific weakness if u have and use google...I won’t lie I switched to bing after it all happened. I only lasted using that a day or two b4 I had to come bck to google. To me it’s the best. I will be much more careful tho from now on 🤷🏻‍♀️
Google worst case of customer service
by LynleyGirl on 2017/11/10 21:04
Zero stars—- I went into their app a total of 4 days in a row. I had an issue with something hanging on my account, which was carrying over into another app. So I went into fix my profile. Well, you can’t go in without their annoying computer assistant hounding you to bundle everything you have into all google products, & one big conglomerate- so they can accumulate & mine even more data on you to sell to other apps they don’t own yet. Went the next day, after I told it, & adjusted my settings to delete all activity from the history- cloud- which I didn’t know they kept on me. As far I know, I’d given only one company permission for that 🍎. They deleted nothing. Not one line! The bot tolls me it would affect their other apps too much. Well, I just got angrier & ... by the 4th days problem, I went in, the bot changed my longtime yahoo account to a google account, all the settings, Created a million apps & add-ons while I shouted no & stop & tried to get out of the app. Waited on hold for live help today for 30.. them they hung up on me. Hatred!
no voiceover supportve
by tacoburn70 on 2018/11/11 09:13
how am I supposed to use this app at all without voiceovers support? when I type in a search field, the search results aren’t accessible. I put my finger over the search results and voiceover does not read them at all. I mean this is the only app I have ever seen it’s not VoiceOver compatible. that really puts google reputation way down in my book. All of us have reported it and Google has done nothing about it. They don’t even respond to it. That shows to me they don’t care about the blind community at all. Microsoft has apps dedicated to us yet googles basic apps aren’t accessible that’s pretty sad. I would use this app every day if it were accessible, but since it’s not, I have no choice but to never use it, removed it from my phonepalmer they come out with updates all the time, But this is one thing that’s never fixed, and I know others have reported this problem also get Google continues to ignore us.
Bring back the “swipe to hide” for news stories
by JayyTownn on 2018/05/23 18:19
I love the app, but after a recent update I noticed I could no longer swipe away stories/cards on my homepage. I didn’t realize how easy or convenient this feature was until it was gone. Now when I’m done with a news story, I have to click the three little dots in the corner of the story and press “Hide this story.” It’s a bit tedious and repetitive to do this for every story/card I don’t want or have already seen, so I’ve started just ignoring the stories altogether (since I’ve seen/read them all and would rather just let them pile up than to go through each individual story/card and click “hide story” just to get it off my homepage). It was so much easier and faster when I could just swipe it away instead. Please bring pack the ‘swipe to hide’ function for news stories on the main page.
A step backwards
by Mister_Director1921 on 2019/04/09 12:14
I love this app and use it all the time, I have since 2011 when I first got a smart phone. Back then the images section could only produce blurry images and they weren’t good quality. Then one day someone fixed that and the images not only got significantly better but you could also easily save photos to your phone from google with a few simple taps. Howevera few weeks ago for some reason someone said “ya know what the new update is missing? That low quality 2011 feel, can we go back to that?” And now the images take forever to load and you can no longer save images to your phone. I’m not sure if it’s due to copyright or whatever but it’s seriously a huge step backwards in my eyes and I’m sure I’m not the only person who feels this way. The app still works great when I need to search for something but it’s 2019 and your new update is from 2011. This needs to be fixed.
Was great for pictures, then went downhill.
by jacksonhawks99 on 2018/11/02 15:41
I have been using this app for a several months to save photos for editing and research for school through the image search. But all of a sudden when I click on a photo, it takes me to the page it is on, instead of just the photo; which is time consuming. It’s not a huge inconvenience, just rather annoying. I used to really enjoy this app, but now it’s more of a struggle to use it for my projects. Another issue is that I thought, “Well I can’t see the image fully but I can still save it from the search screen, right?” Wrong. Now I have to go to the website the picture is on just to save it to my phone. And most of the time it’s not even good quality. I’m pretty disappointed in this move that Google has made involving their image search engine. Please fix this problem so I can continue to enjoy Google and everything it has to offer.
Missed opportunity
by 1fastKAR on 2018/05/29 15:54
I suspect this app is another example of Google abandoning a product. It was a great idea that has lost all momentum. The search functionality is as good as you’d expect, but nothing superior to just opening a browser. It also serves as a convenient interface for two factor authentication to my Google account. My primary intention for installing the Google app was to leverage it’s convenient/customizable news feed functionality. Unfortunately it has fallen woefully short for the task. First Google eliminated all swiping functionality; next, useless, irrelevant, and even annoying “trending” stories began cluttering my feed; now, ‘Hide this story’ has stopped working! The same ‘hidden’ stories appear over and over and over in my feed - totally ignoring my input! Furthermore there seems to be a total lack of any AI tailoring the feed to my interests. I’m left with no better option than to abandon this app as a news feed altogether. I used to love it, now I hate it...
A few big frustrations, but still better than Safari
by cb7182 on 2018/07/16 15:47
I like this app so much better than Safari. It is more organized and user friendly, however it does have a few issues. The most annoying thing is the Google bar at the bottom of the screen. If I need to click something at the bottom, it does not register. It just gives me the Google bar. Its incredibly frustrating to be unable to make a selection on part of the screen. The other thing is that sometimes, my pages will randomly reload and I cannot figure out why. It happens when I am away from the app for 20 minutes and when I leave the app for under a minute to respond to a text. It’s frustrating having to scroll all the way back down. Other than those two things, I think the app is great and will continue to use.
Bait and switch shopping...
by Cherie Buckingham on 2018/08/07 05:13
Disclaimer: Rating may change after product is received but I don't know! So I was searching for a MacBook and decided to use the app to do so. I opened the app, searched MacBook, clicked the 'shopping' tab and found what I thought was an amazing offer for a specific MacBook. I click the link to go to view the details of the item and it changed... DRASTICALLY! I took screenshots but want to warm people before they think they are getting the originally advertised item when in fact, they're getting a lesser and 'different than described on Google shopping app' product. I am posting this strictly based on reading about an advertised item and going through the Google advertised/provided link to purchase. I did purchase the item but will return with a 100% thorough review once I find out if it actually was a hair and switch or if the linked page simply wasn't updated to reflect the originally offered item specs (I hope the latter of the two is correct honestly but we will see.)
Results aren’t loading beyond 1st page
by adnamamaharg on 2018/08/19 23:53
I’ve used the Google app for years and have always loved it. Recently (today), I noticed that when I search for things, when I try to go to the next page, it just reloads the same page so that I essentially can’t get past the first page of results. Sometimes it appears that it even shuffles the results on the first page when it does reload, making it look like it may actually have loaded the second page, but no. I’ve closed & restarted the app, as well as searched for different items using the different categories (All, News, Shopping, etc), and I still can’t get beyond the first page of results. Then I’ll search in Safari and get tons of pages of results, all of which load without incident. Please resolve, as I prefer the app which is generally faster, better formatted and easier to navigate than the Google page through Safari.
One Tiny problem.. but love it!

I’ve been using this google app for as long as I can remember because personally, I find it less cluttery than safari. I typically don’t like having a search history on because it’s just too much to clear out once it accumulates and google has allowed me to do that seemlesly for the longest time, but now I’ve come across the issue that I have to manually switch browse history off every single time I open the app, because the search I’ve done from one prior time, is still on there. I hope it’s just a bug and can be fixed because I don’t want to have to manually switch over every single time I use it, where as before, you did it once and you were set and good to go up until this most recent update. Thank you google!
Love the app, one problem though.
by Ggggggggggggggggg BOY on 2017/11/15 17:05
I’ve been using this app since I’ve first owned a smartphone, many phones before the one I have now. I love the sleek interface and the voice activation function. What I love most, however, is the personalized cards on the home page. I read those daily, often multiple times a day; lately, I’m sad to say that my cards are not working well, though. They will frequently be unable to load the article, and no matter if I refresh, go on WiFi, go to cellular, even kill the app and reopen it, they still won’t open. The only method I’ve found that works is copy-pasting the URL into another browser, but that makes for slow reading. Hope this can get fixed in the future.
New update AWFUL. Google image search useless.
by MeghanSmith917 on 2019/03/29 02:14
New google image search is TERRIBLE! The sole reason I search for images is to see IMAGES, and only images. I do not want to see the text, or a ton of white space. I liked how the old google search app showed images only. I purposely used this app when searching for images as chrome doesn’t display image searches the same. Chrome shows the text. But now, not only is the text required but am unable go full screen with an image (and hide the text when tapping on it or rotating my phone). This is awful for viewing images because phone screens are not that big and now it only shows up on half the screen. Please bring back the old version or at least make it an option that is easy to select on the screen (not hidden in layers of menus within settings). This is extremely frustrating and disappointing
So helpful, but the unwanted cards need to stop.
by Ryleigh K on 2018/11/04 15:47
I love using Google for anything. It helps with so many things I need to do whenever it comes to research for a school project or just looking up the news. What is starting to really bothering me is the repetitive “custom” cards that show up in my feed. The day before writing this, I was talking about Chris Stapleton with my mom since she likes his music. Less than 5 mins later I get an article about him in my feed. Coincidence or not? This has happened multiple times. I always get stuff in my feed that I don’t even like. For example, I’ll get something about Elon Musk. Do I really want to read something about him? No. I always hit “not interested”, but it always pops up. I like the feed feature. I just wish it was more customizable.
Losing pages.
by kokokaylee on 2018/03/28 20:19
If I’m on a page and I have to either step away so my phone goes to sleep or switch screens, it resets to the homepage search bar. Not all the time, but enough that it’s incredibly irritating. I’ll have to scroll all the way back down to where I was (I love reading comments on articles, so sometimes it’s a lot of scrolling) to continue reading. This has only become a problem in the last few updates, I believe since the overall look has changed. Sometimes the page I was on will be completely gone from the history as well, saying I have no browsing history when I clearly do, as I was JUST reading something. Then I have to remember what I searched and the title of the article. Apps are supposed to be streamlined, quick & beneficial. I might as well read on a computer. Fix this, please.
I’m disappointed
by Amy Sweetwater on 2018/11/02 20:47
I know people may not have a problem with this but my google is being annoying right now. So usually when I would search up images, it would show some other images once I click on it. Then I have the option to save and that. Now every single time I click on a picture, it sends me to the website on where it’s from. I don’t want the website, I just wanna see the picture and save it on my camera roll. Now it’s annoying how long it takes me save an image. I’m always seeing the website with its picture. I sometimes like the other photos under that image I search up. I sometimes wanna save them. Now? it takes me at least two-four minutes just to save a picture. I just want my old google back :(
Life's too hard without GOOGLE !
by apitt61 on 2018/10/01 11:34
Yep, that's right, and I'm over 60 and didn't want to learn how to operate a computer. I didn't want a cell phone. Then I kept watching my grandchildren with all these gadgets, so they taught me about iPhones and then........... GOOGLE. It was great. It was so easy to download GOOGLE. Whenever I needed to know something I didn't have to type anything, I just ask GOOGLE. Now there is no need to drag out any books , it saves time. Anything you need, shopping, learning, keeping journals, needing help with anything, just ask GOOGLE. GOOGLE will answer all your questions and take you where you need to go. It was so simple. Then for my birthday my husband bought me an iPad. O my, I can do anything with the help of GOOGLE!!😍

The only search engine I trust and has been my go to since the conception of the term. I’m really loving the personalized news feeds. As someone who intentionally avoids today’s unreliable news sources, especially from social media apps, the google news feed has been a welcome addition to my routine. I no longer have to miss out on reading articles I may be interested in because of my choice to not login to FB. Instead I often find articles I’m interested in through my google feed in between searching for things. Google Search is one of my top 5 most used apps. Their reliability and commitment to being the best in my opinion has hands down beat any other apps. I’m sticking with google for the long haul.
Good as Expected but...
by mcgrottydanny1 on 2018/05/17 13:57
This app basically does exactly what you’d think a Google app would do. For that reason, it’s a fine app. I deleted this app though because I didn’t see the advantage of keeping it when I could just use a mobile browser to search on Google. I wouldn’t even think twice about downloading this app again if it incorporated just 1 specific thing... the first is that I wish this app had a reverse image search feature similar to Pinterest’s. Google already has a reverse image search option for non-mobile users (PC, Mac, etc.) in the browser, but the Google app doesn’t have this function for mobile use. So I would think that a reverse image search right on your mobile device would be brilliant. I would probably delete my Pinterest app if the Google app had this function.
Google window on the bottom of screen
by Wanting a fair game on 2017/10/09 23:50
I like using this app, however, I really dislike the google window at the bottom of the page. It’s in the way when I need to make a selection at the bottom of the screen. I know how to make it smaller so I can make a selection. It’s just to much work just to see the bottom of the screen. Most times I just give up and click open page in Safari so I don’t have deal with it. Its also slightly annoying because it never goes away and I don’t see an option to close it. The only time it goes away is when I scroll up which does me no good if I want to look at the very bottom of the page. It would be much better if it was hidden at the top of the screen and I can just swipe down if I want to see it. At least give an option to close the box.
My Google App
by Lady6ug on 2018/09/08 02:26
I absolutely love Google! Google has helped me so many times I couldn't begin to count. If my grandson, whom lives with me, comes to me with a question I tell him to go & google it most of the time. Sure I answer a lot of his questions, but I think it's good for him to look it up sometimes. Some people don't like the idea of Google having so much of our information. Some things I really don't either, but, on the other hand, Google is " my right hand man" appt, I need to go to, reminders on so many things, call someone for me, text someone for me, taking a note for me, etc., etc., etc. What would I do without out this app? I'd mess up on a lot of things, especially at my age. I'm over 55 yrs. of age. Thank you !
Link to maps usually fails
by Wax and refuel on 2018/06/20 20:31
Generally a useful app but Google has lots of bugs to fix! A search often brings up a map, and when I click on the map within the Google app, it gives "no results". Very annoying and obviously wrong, since if you open another map app, including Google maps, there is what you were looking for. Google, fix this! Similar issue with other searches like yelp. If you search for an establishment and the result you click is a yelp website, the Google app doesn't take you to the information you want. Instead you get a series of links and you have to reenter the search on the yelp app. There's obviously a better way, and things could be more seamless. These have been long running problems and I'm surprised Google isn't on top of this. Seems like it should have been relatively easy to fix.
You Better Think Things Through a Little !
by I Press!! on 2018/06/01 14:06
I enjoy using Google as my search engine! However, I’m getting a little fed-up with the clear Liberal Bias of your Company!! You need to remember that your “Darling Democrats” lost the last election not because of the phony “Russian Collusion “, but because they ignored and insulted The America that exist between the “Coastal Elites” of the East and West Coast!! Your referring to the ideology of the Republicans in this Nation as “ Nazism” is disgraceful, but most assuredly, purposeful on your part!! You don’t have to sell-out to the millions of conservatives in America who happen to be a large part of your customer base, but you don’t have to constantly show your distain for us either!! Someday, your liberal love affair might just come back to bite you in your Corporate Butts!!! Bob Gilbert
The Interface is Getting Cluttered
by gtaboo on 2017/11/03 03:41
It was nice having the streamlined layout of the app several versions before, and with every update version, the interface loads up with more buttons of questionable interest, and an excess of information that would be best left hidden or condensed. The tab feature is also getting cluttered with excessive numbers of saved pages after simple searches. I do not need a new window every time I want to view a new image, I just want to browse in peace. This is a petty and personal issue that doesn’t impede the app’s usefulness, so I will leave this with a decent rating, but I would greatly appreciate it if options for less screen filler were available in future updates. Thanks to whoever may see this.
Very disappointed
by Pls lust lemme post things;-; on 2019/06/04 00:34
Okay Google, you’ve been on thin ice for a while but with this new update is where I draw the line. I loved the Google app and have been using it religiously as my search engine for 5+ years. There have been many changes since I first started using the app, mostly good, but some bad. I use google a lot for reference images for art and now you can no longer save pictures directly from images. It was bad enough you took away the image previews, and then changed the way you save photos, but now you can’t even save them! It sends you to the website, but for many things on mobile it either doesn’t work or forces you to sign into a website to get to the photo. Sometimes it will take you to a website that just doesn’t even work! I will probably stop using the Google app after today and switch to another unless you fix this. It makes the app unusable for me.
Once critical app now unstable under iOS12
by dj jon bates on 2018/12/23 07:46
I have used this app since its early days, a majority of my experience was excellent: on an iPad Pro, it was a godsend in split-screen mode when I needed to pull content from several sources into my primary apps by dragging or pasting. Once iOS updated to its current release, this is the least stable and highest-lag of Google’s iOS offerings (several of which also suffer under iOS12). I didn’t understand when the ‘tools’ option was suddenly deactivated on image searches, but tolerated it because the app overall was still strong. Now, I use this app only when I can afford to have it freeze or crash. Scrolling through saved item collections is impossibly laggy, with several seconds elapsing between a touch or drag and the app responding — when it does scroll, it stutters and freezes. I have a top-tier current-gen iPad Pro with 70% of internal storage available, and would hope Google values stability and performance over feature-adds that aren’t ready for public release. Please fix this, Google: an app that is fragile and unreliable is an app uninstalled. I’ve invested in the enterprise products you offer and rely on them daily (if not hourly) to do my job.
What’s up with images
by Just wants to upload photos! on 2018/11/02 02:20
I love google. Use it everyday. Also use the images everyday to reference things I read for a visual. Have always been able to click on image to enlarge it to see it better, because let’s be real, viewing a page of all the photos in their tiny little squares on a smartphone is just hilarious and bad for the eyes! All day the app has been normal. Tonight, on the other hand, I click on a photo to view and it directs me straight to the website. In which case 80% of the time you can’t find the photo or still can not enlarge to see. What the heck gives?!?! It’s not the end of the world, but it very well could be end of the app for me. If I wanted to scroll the original websites and view photos there, I would never head on over to the images section. It’s highly frustrating when you click the image to view and instead wait for the webpage to load. Please please fix.
Could be an amazing app but...
by MusicalDragon350 on 2018/06/30 18:45
I really like this app, but lately I have been pretty frustrated with it. This wasn’t happening at first, but now when I open the recently visited websites tab after I’ve been using the app to try and navigate to another page it won’t go to the page I want. It is happening fairly often too. It’s not that big of a deal, because I can get there by either typing it into the address bar or closing out of and restarting the app (sometimes this doesn’t work though). But it’s a real pain and can prevent me from setting aside a page or make me lose my progress on something like it just recently did. The mishap is actually what prompted me to write this review. If this problem were to go away the app would get a full 5 stars from me.
Swipe keyboard
by JenningsGraham on 2018/01/13 14:44
The reason I have this app is for the swipe keyboard. This may be the single greatest feature of this app, as my major complaint about iPhones has always been the lack of one. However, since the latest update (11.2.1), there has been quite a lag between me finishing a word and it being entered onto the screen. If I type too fast, words sometimes won't get displayed as they get"typed over." This is extremely frustrating and completely ruins the point of swipe (fast texting), and therefore, the app (in my particular case). It may be an Apple issue, since it has only been happening since the most recent update, but there may be something you guys can do about it. This is a 5 star app, but since the update has been a 2 star app. Please fix this issue. (I have an iPhone SE if that matters at all) Thanks
Good App, only one problem
by Blazing Heart on 2017/12/29 22:22
I’ve been getting this pop up lately on Google and Google Chrome that basically says “Congratulations, you have been selected...” and all that. It’s a scam. It’s really consistent and it won’t go away even after clearing my cookies on my phone. It doesn’t happen on Safari and only on Google products on my phone. I tried deleting the app and I even reset my phone and nothing has worked. One way you can improve is to add a feature to Google that stops frequent pop ups like that because this is getting out of hand. That’s the only problem I have with it, everything else is fine. And trust me, it’s not just me who is dealing with all of this. I hope this will be solved soon.
Google business
by foote properties on 2019/05/13 15:21
I am a local google guide and enjoy being able to review businesses and seeing what others have said before I use a service or company myself. I believe the future of google maps will allow us to do 3D VR tours of businesses and add them right on google street view to be able to walk right inside the front door and look around the store like if your were 3D touring a new home to purchase. I have already started capturing virtual tours of rentals I manage. And look forward to the day that they can be added on google maps to walk inside if houses for rent or sale and businesses that allow virtual tours to be available. Watch a wait.
The new update...
by Dyleeb527@mlg on 2018/11/02 03:13
I use Google almost everyday... sometimes to look up images. Now when I go to the images and click on them, instead of getting a close-up of the image it sends me to the website where it’s from. This is extremely annoying because I just want to see the image, not to go to the website. You should change it back to the way it supposed to be! Before, you could just tap on an image and get a close-up of it and if you wanted to go onto the website you could tap the image a second time. It actually gave you a choice! Please, change it back to when we could actually have a choice because honestly it’s really annoying the way it is now.
Fix History and Images
by Hello Person03 on 2019/03/23 02:37
The way you delete and look at your search history along with Google images has recently been updated, and it needs to go back. First off, the best feature of your Search History, the ability to delete all of it at once, has been removed and replaced with a day by day basis which is much more difficult to manage. Also, the way you view images when you search has been changed and looks atrocious. It’s clunky, and you can no longer look at images in full screen. It appears to be a terrible attempt at trying to make it look like the desktop image search. Please, please, bring back the old History and Images search, as they are superior and easier to use than what has been added.
What happened
by Tina633 on 2018/06/04 23:21
Google has been the word that changed social media as well as the internet almost as soon as Google hit the internet. We no longer just "browsed" the internet or "searched", we now "googled" and soon just about everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. To google became the very personification of searching for info on the internet. Not sure what happened but I just deleted google as it has gone wonky. At first I thought it was just my iPad but when all the other apps are working as well as they ever did...except for google, it had to be the app, or google. Can't give it five stars as a result. It seems even google has issues. Just doesn't seem as reliable as before.
Very good app, however only one problem
by Chicken6042 on 2018/02/06 02:03
I use google all the time for researching in school homework and useful website etc. However, sometimes I search a topic up. Let’s say I searched up “How to cook waffles.” Then I wanna search something else up, let’s say I wanna search up “how to cook eggs” now the problem here is when I search a second thing it should say on the search bar that I searched “how to cook eggs” but for some reason instead of saying that. It shows “how to cook waffles.” And if I search something else up that topic will show but “how to cook waffles” will still be there. Now it’s not a big deal but it just gets really annoying when it happens.
Um, photos automatically go to links now?
by Invaderrain on 2018/11/02 17:48
I loved using google but now it’s odd to use because I wanted to look up photo references for a project of mine and now every time I tap on an image it goes to the website and sometimes you have to dig on some of those websites it takes you to just to find the darn image. It’s odd considering the fact that if you use the actual google website on a laptop the images don’t do this but now on phones they decided that it would be a good idea? Not a very good one at all. Also, when you’re trying to look up arguments on both sides and it only shows more left side leaning even though I’ll specifically look up the right view because I need both sides for an actual good political debate for my government class.
Need to be able to turn off articles and trending
by PiratePremtice on 2017/12/17 20:32
I love this app for its core features, including weather, sports, and keeping up with appointments and traffic. I ABSOLUTELY do not want to see 1000 articles about politics on my google app. Yes you can turn a story off one by one, but you need an option to be able to turn off articles altogether. I also abhor you telling me what’s trending when I’m about to search for something. If I’m trying to google a recipe, why should the first thing I see be the latest garbage out of Washington? Seriously who thought this up? Some people might want that but I know how to find the news when I want to see it, and I don’t want to see what the internet is thinking about during EVERY google search. This is not a feature for me and needs to be able to be turned off!
Can’t delete history
by Gobro gopro on 2018/06/04 18:32
You used to be able to easily click a button that said “delete history”. They’ve updated it and you cannot do that anymore. Now you have to individually delete the search history from each previous day, and it doesn’t even work! I deleted my history from today, yesterday, and 2 days ago and then voila the history from today that I just “deleted” is right back in front of me. If googles fixes this or brings it back to the way it was before where it was much better, I’ll change my review Update: way better now that they’ve fixed it. Love the app.
I feel hostage to this latest version
by ANYTHING BUT THIS APP on 2019/05/11 03:46
Somehow, someway, and without my consent,my google search app for iPhone was “upgraded” to the latest “beta” version recently. I noticed the difference immediately on 5/1/19. The entire app displays search results in a chaotic, frenzied, disjointed fashion that is infuriating. Search on Google images?? Ha! It’s enough to cause an instant migraine! What the heck is going on? All Google image search results now display in some bizarre quasi-ad format. Desperate, I literally called Google, which, I didn’t even know was a thing, searching for answers. After 35 minutes of bouncing around I was told I was selected for some beta test version of the new Google search. I was told there is no way to revert back to the prior version. Perfect. Very good Google. I ordered vanilla ice cream Google, but feel free to force-feed me the double chunk peanut butter ice cream that I am highly allergic to. Wow.
A little buggy
by Oktoberfest914 on 2018/09/16 03:38
I’ve used this app for many years, but over the past year or so it has got buggy. First, switching to incognito can take literally a minute or longer. Why? Same for switching back from incognito. Then when searching it will all of a sudden blank out the bottom half of the page where you can no longer see any search results. You have to research to see all results again. Finally, when opening the app it takes several seconds to begin a search. You’ll begin typing only to discover it wasn’t ready and see just the last few letters of your search result showing in the search box. Weird. Why does it take so long? These issues don’t occurs with the Chrome app, so what’s up Google?
Horrible app update
by Alxndr9 on 2019/05/11 02:14
I have been using this app for as long as I can remember. I don’t know what happened to this app but it used to be amazing. I used this app to replace safari. Until one stupid update. For some reason there is no history anymore in the “recent searches” anymore. Witch is stupid. If I didn’t want to show my history, that’s what incognito is for. I cannot find a way to change it and no one is willing to help because they don’t know what I’m talking about. Another problem if the images tab. You cannot go full screen on photos anymore. Which was very helpful for zooming in. Another problem is the constant freezing and crashing. I have never had a problem with this app. EVER. I physically cannot use it for more then 5 minutes without the app needing to be restarted. Very disappointed. And I used to use google for literally everything.
Love it but needs a fix.
by blake everette. on 2018/11/02 09:56
I love the google app. In fact I use it more often than I use safari. The app is quick it’s simple and it is very convenient. HOWEVER, upon using it this early morning, I noticed a change. When I go to type in something, for example “cute cats”, it will of course bring up the links and websites with related photos. Although that is helpful, when I move my finger to the right and tap on images the images are brought up in a gallery as usual. The problem lies where when I am scrolling through I tapped a photo to see it closer, which is how I’m used to doing. But instead of that picture popping up, when I tapped it or any image, it just jumped and brought me to the actual website. Super frustrating.
MAJOR ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXED
by CaTa613 on 2018/06/22 00:37
Hey google, Lemme start by saying hat I love your app. It’s efficient, smart, and the best search engine! I just have one major issue that needs to be fixed. When I look up TV shows, what really helps is that I can see the exact time and channel a TV show will be airing on TV. Instead of browsing my TV guide for hours, this is way more useful. However, it appears that you have removed that feature and it has become incredibly frustrating and annoying. That’s one of the main reasons I loved the app, because of the “TV guide.” So can you please bring it back? That will allow me and many others to continue enjoying the app at its fullest. Thank you and please fix this.
UwU
by bazookatagz on 2017/10/02 02:48
so i know this app isn't that great for searching, it's slow, eats up data ofc and ultimately is a pale imitation of a browser, but my heart is so warmed by the fact that every night i get a pop up weather notification that tells me the temperature changes that i felt literally COMPELLED to come give a five star rating. i know, it's people like me that make this system a joke, but they've got four stars already. they do impress me, because i'm couch surfing and definitely don't wanna spend a night on the street when it's snowing or raining, or after a 20° drop, and they do provide a pretty direct, accurate service that most other apps can't.
Very user friendly
by Prof_Siracha on 2017/11/03 05:26
I love, love, love the google app! It never leaves my home bar! The app creates a personalized web/news feed that keeps me updated on things that matter most to me. Everything about app, from the layout to the feed keeps me going back here to look things up instead of safari. However, I always find that google is better for searching up quick facts, such as definitions and numbers, rather than opening websites. Other than that, I strongly recommend buying this secure and very useful app (much better than other search engine apps, a lot easier to use and much simpler)!
