CNET Editors' note: The "Download Now" button takes you to Google's mobile site, which instructs you how to download the app over-the-air.
CNET Editors' review
Already a powerful information tool on BlackBerry, Google Mobile App keeps getting better. Additions to its search aspect, the app's primary function, scours the Web, your phone's address book and e-mail in-box, your Web-based Gmail account, and Google Docs for results that match your query. The app UI is anchored by a search bar, with a string of icons marching along the top to open other apps, like Gmail, Google Maps, Google News, and Google Reader. Click one to download or launch native Google apps like Gmail and maps, or to jump to mobile Web sites for the panoply of Google apps.
Autocomplete search suggestions save you time. You can also scroll through search history and edit a misspelled search term. A My Location feature that uses your GPS or cell tower triangulation helps localize search results.
The app's face is long overdue for a refresh, but its strong substance keeps it high on our list of most useful BlackBerry apps.Google Mobile App for BlackBerry 3.3:
Google Mobile App gets you the information you need quickly, with instant access to Google Search, and launches your favorite Google products. Start a search without waiting to load a mobile browser, by typing or speaking a query. Search suggestions and your search history appear as you type. Access Maps, Gmail, News and more all from one place. You can also search Gmail for items and contacts, and Google Docs as well.

""App Of The Day" SPAM POPUP WILL NOT GO AWAY"
Version: Google Mobile App for BlackBerry 3.8
You can view and edit text documents but nothing else. You can not view or edit spreadsheets.
"App Of The Day" spam popup will great you the first time you check your blackberry every day and it will not go away for over a minute no matter how many times you hit the clear button. It will completely lock up your phone for over a minute unless you click the download button which is the only option available on the "App Or The Day" spam popup.
Google has decided to play dirty with this app. After installing this app I started getting an "App Of The Day" popup on my blackberry every morning that will not go away for over a minute without clicking "download". I thought it was coming from blackberry app world so I called blackberry and Verizon and they both acted like they knew nothing about it. I later found out that this App Of The Day was coming from the Google Gdrive Gdoc application that I had downloaded to my blackberry. This is some truly low down disgusting crap for Google to be pulling to have this horribly annoying SPAM popup appear on the blackberry and making it look like it came from blackberry app world. So apparently they are trying to sabotage blackberry so that people will ditch their blackberry and get Google android phones instead. I don't know but I think we should all boycott Google from this day forward because this is some truly despicable behavior coming from a company the size of Google Corporation. Shameful.
