Google Adds Mobile App Search Tool
You can now go to Google and restrict and filter your search results to only show mobile apps.
To do so, search at Google for an app, and then on the search tools on the left, click “more” and then select “Applications.” Google will then show you apps from the Apple iTunes App Store, Google Android Market, plus other app sites such as AppBrain, AndroidZoom, CNet and many more.

Google enabled a new app rich snippet back in September. Plus they have indexed mobile apps from iTunes and Google Android Market for over a year now.
