Google Search App With Google Now Breaks Into iTunes Top 10

Google mobile app logoWhen Google first released its updated Google Search app last October, it never made the iTunes top ten and, last week, wasn’t even in the top 100. But the addition of Google Now helped the app make the top ten in less than a week.

Google relaunched its app last October with Siri-like voice recognition and readback, but after peaking at number 16, it started dropping down to around the 150 mark last Sunday.

With Google Now being added, the app has risen up to number 10 in the most recently downloaded free apps list. Coincidentally, it also just got named the 10th most downlaoded free app ever for the iPhone.

Whether Google Now functionality helps it stay in the top 10 remains to be seen, of course.

    I downloaded this over the weekend, and I must say it is pretty cool. The “siri” feature is much better than what the iPhone already comes with.
