Maps only open for google maps?
by brneely71 on 2019/09/15 13:53
My google search app AND my chrome app will not open my preferred Maps app when I try and search directions. They will only open google maps and it’s irritating. I used to have the choice and now I have to copy and paste addresses just to use both of these apps.
New update 👎
by Raman422 on 2019/09/15 11:09
Not good at all
Always been a 5 star app till recently
by Darkaprilmoon on 2019/09/15 03:12
I just updated and now doing an image search is a pain and impossible to do. You can’t just view pictures regularly and it has ads throughout the page. If I wanted to shop, I’d hit the ad page. Let us be able to view the image by tapping it.

Direction and maps integration!
by Artchuro on 2019/09/13 21:36
Since the last update, someone messed up !!!, When you search for a business or place and then click on directions it takes you on a wild goose chase in order to get to a map app, even if you want to use Google Maps you will have to go through several more steps whereas before it was easy and streamlined and one click did it all * somebody who knows anybody at google please let them know this problem, it is no longer streamlined if you want to click on directions or maps through the Google app for a particular location or business* ☹️ this was my favorite app now it is the most frustrating

Why do I have to
by Solitaire fan 564 on 2019/09/12 20:04
Why al of a sudden, I have to type in my apple password to open up the google app. It has nothing to do with me reading stories on google. I will delete the app and stop using google before I give them my password. What a pile of feces!!!

PLEASE FIX
by Wanna laugh? on 2019/09/12 15:42
I use the Google app to look up locations instead of Google Maps Because I want alot more information than just the location. As soon as I hit directions it usually took me to google maps just for the GPS part. Now it takes me to I guess the desktop version which isn’t good at all. So I’ve been having to jump through hoops. I got a click on like three more things just to get where I was. I use it a lot so it’s getting on my nerves. Very inconvenient anymore. Basically I want to google a location and be able to scroll up and down to see more information about it, then hit directions and it automatically take me to google maps for the GPS part and it doesn’t.

by Kami 87 on 2019/09/12 04:33
I have gotten 2 virus notifications from google in the year alone. it is ridiculous that they cannot have somthing to scan to see if there is a virus, so everyone can be safe searching. But until somthing comes out to make searching the webb on my phone much safer.

Love it but now.....
by Emann07 on 2019/09/10 12:19
Ive used this app for years on my iPad and love it because it was always signed in. Now, over the last couple of days, I must log in to access my two email accounts. If I close the app, I have to sign in again to open, create, or just check my email and I have to do this for each account. Also have to sign in every time I check my google calendar. Is there something new I must do to keep it signed in? Is this a new security feature? If so, I don’t like it. Since I use my iPad for business, it’s highly important that I have quick access to my email. May have to go back to my resident mail app.

Bad update
by Hurricane jo 4567 on 2019/09/09 00:19
The latest update this has is terrible. They limit your searches where you can basically get a max of 10 searches especially when it comes to food. It does not let you continue scrolling on a certain search. Also when I type an a location I want to then I hit directions, it no longer sends me to Apple Maps. I have to stay on google maps which doesn’t work well on here

I like the idea, but bugs & UI needs cleaned up
by CzernAttack on 2019/09/07 14:23
I love the idea of being able to “follow” people, places, movements and such, but the app is kind of unpleasant to use. The UI is unintuitive, and every time I refresh the page by swiping down, I get the “Check back soon” error, and all of my “More” or “Less” selections have been forgotten. The only thing that “fixes” this (I wouldn’t call it a fix, because the more/less selections are forgotten, hence the quotations) is restarting my phone. If these things are cleaned up, I’d give 5 stars. For now, only 3.

Outstanding place in Cienfuegos Cuba

Camilas hostal was the most beautiful peaceful place to stay, arrive to pure beauty. It was easy to find not far from center of Cienfuegos center and close to other attractions. The best of it all was being welcomed by Alejandro getting our accommodation, while explaining everything very thoroughly also very helpful with recommendations. Top it off with the restaurant, very delicious affordable prices, great beverages, outstanding service peaceful by the water. I highly recommend this stay at Camilas hostal in Cienfuegos, I must say a return. Jeanie

Tries to open google assistant now
by ChaceCole on 2019/09/03 16:22
For the past week now the microphone will not automatically search Google. It tries to open google assistant and does not google anything, it opens up the results from your last search regardless of what you asked it to search, it pulls up the results from your previous search. Example, if I searched for apples 4 hours ago, then pull it up to search for a new computer right now, if I tap the microphone and ask “what’s the best computer in 2019” it will pop up 1 search result with google assistant still about apples.

Google Discover
by badkitty_ on 2019/09/02 21:26
I love Google Discover! But I am baffled why I cannot get Google Discover on my iPad Pro 12.9 inch 2018 in Safari. Google Discover automatically appears for me on my iPhone in Safari when I type in google.com. However, when I try the same thing in Safari on my iPad Pro, I just get a plain Google search bar with no Discover features. The only way I have found to get Google Discover on my iPad, despite playing around with all of the Google settings and everything in my Google account, is to download this separate Google app. But I don’t want a separate Google app just to get the Google Discover feature. And I don’t understand why that feature is easily available on my iPhone but not my iPad.
Over this app
by Bre001 on 2019/09/02 17:36
I’ve always used this app since like forever. Now I’m having all kind of problems. Trying to click on pictures to even enlarge them, I have to click the link to go to a site just to see an enlarged picture. It was also really easy to use to google something and get directions to it. But now it makes me use google maps instead of my maps that are already on the phone. Then I’ll click the actual address that will take me to “maps” and it doesn’t load the directions at all. So it’s just frustrating af and they really could’ve left this app alone. It never needed an update for anything
I love this but....
by sockbanana on 2019/09/02 17:14
So overall this is a great app, but I feel like for kids, there should be a settings so parents or guardians can restrict this app or certain stuff on here, because their is a lot of stuff on here that young kids can get access to.
Best by default
by 1Mimi for real tech inginuity on 2019/09/02 14:46
Google is the best compared to all the other search engines. I don’t like all the ads and how your search results are geared to where you previously searched even after you delete your previous search history, disable all the tracking features, and clear cache....There is NO need to do underhanded tactics if you are truly the best. It’s sad that such a large company feels they must have no ethics or moral boundaries in order to dominate the competition. Tracking the public and taking away their privacy is not freedom at all nor is it technological genius.

No longer launches Google Maps app
by Econman27 on 2019/08/31 15:56
Up until this update, I would have given it 5 stars. Now, when I search for a location and click “directions”...it doesn’t auto-launch the Google Maps app. Instead, it launches a web page and THEN asks if I want to use Google Maps. This is a terrible update. Please fix!

Last update bug 🐜
by DudemanLA on 2019/08/31 02:25
This last update when I tell it to navigate somewhere it gets stuck asks to use the location and now it gets stuck. At first it prompted me to use my current location but I’ve already given it permission to use my location when I’m using the application I tapped OK and tried it again but it still gets stuck and it doesn’t open Google Maps.
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.
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.
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!
Akstyles
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.
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.
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!!😍
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 :(
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 !
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Only works half the time
by monstertruk on 2019/08/05 20:47
I used to really enjoy this app, I’ve been using it for a few years now. Now it seems like ads are the priority, not content. Annoying ads are the first to load, content comes second. What prompted me to write this review was when I was trying to finish an article, the content repeatedly disappeared on the page, the ads stayed in place of course, causing me to constantly refresh. The load/refresh rate is always slow, even on a fast connection. Not to mention I get pop-ups that take over my screen on a regular basis. Is this how Google treats its users? Not to mention the biased search results and cards. I consider myself a moderate, but the mentioned items are always politically skewed. How about some variety Google? Stop treating your users as statistics and data mines. Fix these issues.
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.
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.

It is nice to have the Google app to curate news stories. The most recent version as of June 2019 makes it appear to be easier to tweak seeing news you like and deemphasize stuff not of interest. Unfortunately you still need a separate app to follow the stock market. There are still bugs where the app says it can’t contact Google’s servers to update stories or web pages you’ve been reading suddenly are replaced with a white screen: “the web page is currently unavailable. There are also random times when the main page only displays one or two articles. Instead of adding features, I would rather Google fix the usability issues of previous versions that are still in this version.
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!
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)!
About the Tabs
by Ljay001 on 2017/12/06 05:34
This is the best app! I love it. What I didn't love was the previous update to the tabs where it just decided to delete them after 7 days... NOT. OKAY. I like my tabs. I like them accessible. I keep them for reasons. I'm so happy the recent update returned to it previous functioning! I no longer have any complaints! It's fast, reliable and easy to navigate. I enjoy the suggested news feed which nearly always sidetracks me when I pull up a new search. I don't like why they know to suggest it... but I have to say I do enjoy many of the articles suggested so... Still the best search engine in my opinion.
Lost swipe feature, and app closes
by SimplyAskew on 2018/08/24 19:04
Update: I have lessened another star, because lately when I click on a suggested article to open, the google app closes and takes me to my home screen. It also happens when I type in a search. Not all the time, but often enough. I use google all the time, for the most random searches. I enjoy the cards and article suggestions (usually). I loved the ability to swipe to clear after reading or to dismiss. That swiping feature seems to be gone, and I find it irritating I now have to open a menu on a card and choose to hide an article. First world problems, I know, but why would google remove a feature of such convenience? Five stars if it returns (please, google!)

Maps only open for google maps?
by brneely71 on 2019/09/15 13:53
My google search app AND my chrome app will not open my preferred Maps app when I try and search directions. They will only open google maps and it’s irritating. I used to have the choice and now I have to copy and paste addresses just to use both of these apps.

I just updated and now doing an image search is a pain and impossible to do. You can’t just view pictures regularly and it has ads throughout the page. If I wanted to shop, I’d hit the ad page. Let us be able to view the image by tapping it.

Direction and maps integration!
by Artchuro on 2019/09/13 21:36
Since the last update, someone messed up !!!, When you search for a business or place and then click on directions it takes you on a wild goose chase in order to get to a map app, even if you want to use Google Maps you will have to go through several more steps whereas before it was easy and streamlined and one click did it all * somebody who knows anybody at google please let them know this problem, it is no longer streamlined if you want to click on directions or maps through the Google app for a particular location or business* ☹️ this was my favorite app now it is the most frustrating

PLEASE FIX
by Wanna laugh? on 2019/09/12 15:42
I use the Google app to look up locations instead of Google Maps Because I want alot more information than just the location. As soon as I hit directions it usually took me to google maps just for the GPS part. Now it takes me to I guess the desktop version which isn’t good at all. So I’ve been having to jump through hoops. I got a click on like three more things just to get where I was. I use it a lot so it’s getting on my nerves. Very inconvenient anymore. Basically I want to google a location and be able to scroll up and down to see more information about it, then hit directions and it automatically take me to google maps for the GPS part and it doesn’t.

by Emann07 on 2019/09/10 12:19
Ive used this app for years on my iPad and love it because it was always signed in. Now, over the last couple of days, I must log in to access my two email accounts. If I close the app, I have to sign in again to open, create, or just check my email and I have to do this for each account. Also have to sign in every time I check my google calendar. Is there something new I must do to keep it signed in? Is this a new security feature? If so, I don’t like it. Since I use my iPad for business, it’s highly important that I have quick access to my email. May have to go back to my resident mail app.

The latest update this has is terrible. They limit your searches where you can basically get a max of 10 searches especially when it comes to food. It does not let you continue scrolling on a certain search. Also when I type an a location I want to then I hit directions, it no longer sends me to Apple Maps. I have to stay on google maps which doesn’t work well on here

I like the idea, but bugs & UI needs cleaned up
by CzernAttack on 2019/09/07 14:23
I love the idea of being able to “follow” people, places, movements and such, but the app is kind of unpleasant to use. The UI is unintuitive, and every time I refresh the page by swiping down, I get the “Check back soon” error, and all of my “More” or “Less” selections have been forgotten. The only thing that “fixes” this (I wouldn’t call it a fix, because the more/less selections are forgotten, hence the quotations) is restarting my phone. If these things are cleaned up, I’d give 5 stars. For now, only 3.

Outstanding place in Cienfuegos Cuba

Camilas hostal was the most beautiful peaceful place to stay, arrive to pure beauty. It was easy to find not far from center of Cienfuegos center and close to other attractions. The best of it all was being welcomed by Alejandro getting our accommodation, while explaining everything very thoroughly also very helpful with recommendations. Top it off with the restaurant, very delicious affordable prices, great beverages, outstanding service peaceful by the water. I highly recommend this stay at Camilas hostal in Cienfuegos, I must say a return. Jeanie

THE BEST OF THE BEST...GOOGLE! Yes
Tries to open google assistant now
by ChaceCole on 2019/09/03 16:22
For the past week now the microphone will not automatically search Google. It tries to open google assistant and does not google anything, it opens up the results from your last search regardless of what you asked it to search, it pulls up the results from your previous search. Example, if I searched for apples 4 hours ago, then pull it up to search for a new computer right now, if I tap the microphone and ask “what’s the best computer in 2019” it will pop up 1 search result with google assistant still about apples.

Google Discover
by badkitty_ on 2019/09/02 21:26
I love Google Discover! But I am baffled why I cannot get Google Discover on my iPad Pro 12.9 inch 2018 in Safari. Google Discover automatically appears for me on my iPhone in Safari when I type in google.com. However, when I try the same thing in Safari on my iPad Pro, I just get a plain Google search bar with no Discover features. The only way I have found to get Google Discover on my iPad, despite playing around with all of the Google settings and everything in my Google account, is to download this separate Google app. But I don’t want a separate Google app just to get the Google Discover feature. And I don’t understand why that feature is easily available on my iPhone but not my iPad.
Over this app
by Bre001 on 2019/09/02 17:36
I’ve always used this app since like forever. Now I’m having all kind of problems. Trying to click on pictures to even enlarge them, I have to click the link to go to a site just to see an enlarged picture. It was also really easy to use to google something and get directions to it. But now it makes me use google maps instead of my maps that are already on the phone. Then I’ll click the actual address that will take me to “maps” and it doesn’t load the directions at all. So it’s just frustrating af and they really could’ve left this app alone. It never needed an update for anything
I love this but....
by sockbanana on 2019/09/02 17:14
So overall this is a great app, but I feel like for kids, there should be a settings so parents or guardians can restrict this app or certain stuff on here, because their is a lot of stuff on here that young kids can get access to.
Best by default
by 1Mimi for real tech inginuity on 2019/09/02 14:46
Google is the best compared to all the other search engines. I don’t like all the ads and how your search results are geared to where you previously searched even after you delete your previous search history, disable all the tracking features, and clear cache....There is NO need to do underhanded tactics if you are truly the best. It’s sad that such a large company feels they must have no ethics or moral boundaries in order to dominate the competition. Tracking the public and taking away their privacy is not freedom at all nor is it technological genius.

Inconvenient
by Chromeyboi on 2019/09/01 23:06
Google adds borders and all these icons on the sides of the screen that make it absolutely impossible to access the top of a web page. Also I can’t screenshot a picture from Google anymore because it won’t let the pictures go full screen.

Stupid white X

I absolutely hate the new update to the google app! Every time I switch to images I get that stupid white X in the corner. I want to be able to flip through images like I’m flipping through pictures on my phone. Please change it back! Thanks
This is awesome
by Kaneto94 on 2019/08/31 23:35
I use this app daily, mostly because t’s so useful. The one thing that sets me off is that sometimes when I go on a website, part of the page is above the top, and when I try to get to it, the page goes back down. Please fix this. Thanks!

No longer launches Google Maps app
by Econman27 on 2019/08/31 15:56
Up until this update, I would have given it 5 stars. Now, when I search for a location and click “directions”...it doesn’t auto-launch the Google Maps app. Instead, it launches a web page and THEN asks if I want to use Google Maps. This is a terrible update. Please fix!
Thank you

Last update bug 🐜
by DudemanLA on 2019/08/31 02:25
This last update when I tell it to navigate somewhere it gets stuck asks to use the location and now it gets stuck. At first it prompted me to use my current location but I’ve already given it permission to use my location when I’m using the application I tapped OK and tried it again but it still gets stuck and it doesn’t open Google Maps.
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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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!!😍
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 :(
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 !
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.
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.
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.
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’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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Only works half the time
by monstertruk on 2019/08/05 20:47
I used to really enjoy this app, I’ve been using it for a few years now. Now it seems like ads are the priority, not content. Annoying ads are the first to load, content comes second. What prompted me to write this review was when I was trying to finish an article, the content repeatedly disappeared on the page, the ads stayed in place of course, causing me to constantly refresh. The load/refresh rate is always slow, even on a fast connection. Not to mention I get pop-ups that take over my screen on a regular basis. Is this how Google treats its users? Not to mention the biased search results and cards. I consider myself a moderate, but the mentioned items are always politically skewed. How about some variety Google? Stop treating your users as statistics and data mines. Fix these issues.
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.
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.
Would be a good beta version
by Bill in Akron on 2019/06/23 23:22
It is nice to have the Google app to curate news stories. The most recent version as of June 2019 makes it appear to be easier to tweak seeing news you like and deemphasize stuff not of interest. Unfortunately you still need a separate app to follow the stock market. There are still bugs where the app says it can’t contact Google’s servers to update stories or web pages you’ve been reading suddenly are replaced with a white screen: “the web page is currently unavailable. There are also random times when the main page only displays one or two articles. Instead of adding features, I would rather Google fix the usability issues of previous versions that are still in this version.
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!
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)!
About the Tabs
by Ljay001 on 2017/12/06 05:34
This is the best app! I love it. What I didn't love was the previous update to the tabs where it just decided to delete them after 7 days... NOT. OKAY. I like my tabs. I like them accessible. I keep them for reasons. I'm so happy the recent update returned to it previous functioning! I no longer have any complaints! It's fast, reliable and easy to navigate. I enjoy the suggested news feed which nearly always sidetracks me when I pull up a new search. I don't like why they know to suggest it... but I have to say I do enjoy many of the articles suggested so... Still the best search engine in my opinion.
Lost swipe feature, and app closes
by SimplyAskew on 2018/08/24 19:04
Update: I have lessened another star, because lately when I click on a suggested article to open, the google app closes and takes me to my home screen. It also happens when I type in a search. Not all the time, but often enough. I use google all the time, for the most random searches. I enjoy the cards and article suggestions (usually). I loved the ability to swipe to clear after reading or to dismiss. That swiping feature seems to be gone, and I find it irritating I now have to open a menu on a card and choose to hide an article. First world problems, I know, but why would google remove a feature of such convenience? Five stars if it returns (please, google!)
