Using Google Mobile App On My iPhone

Today I got my iPhone and I decided to do a quick pictorial on using Google’s Mobile App for the iPhone. Here is my walkthrough:

Here is me finding and viewing the Google Mobile App directly in the Apple App Store on my iPhone:

I purchased it by clicking on the “FREE” button and signing into my Apple account. Once you purchase it, the app icon loads on your home screen and shows the status bar:

When the status bar goes away, then it is fully loaded:

I clicked on the icon to activate it and Google asked me if I want to send them my location information. I said yes.

The app also offers quick search suggestions. I typed in Apple and they offered “Apple Store” and others:
