Editors' Review

Google's all-in-one search application for Windows phones is a handy sliver of an application that brings Google search, Google mail, maps, and a flurry of Google's other online services to your fingertips. On Windows phones, Google Mobile App installs as a Home Screen plug-in. From it, you can type a term into the search bar or scroll through icons to launch a Google service on your mobile browser, like Gmail, Picasa Web albums, and Google Docs.

A new My Location feature uses GPS or cell phone triangulation to figure out your whereabouts. If you turn it on, Google will be able to automatically return search results nearby. If you have Google Maps installed, it can also tag certain suggestions with a red flag; when you click this, Google Mobile App can plot the record on a map. Very handy.

If you don't choose to install the plug-in, or if your phone has a custom screen, you'll be able to open the application from the program menu, add it to your Start screen, or map it to a hard key on your phone. Although Google's mobile application for Windows Mobile phones doesn't accept voice search yet, the free application is a time-saving convenience that's just right for those who regularly use Google search and Google's online applications.
