Google has released a new iPhone application that integrates services such as Google search and Gmail into a single interface.
The new application makes it easier for Apple’s iPhone users to find, use and switch between Google search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader and other Google services.
The application takes advantage of browser technologies (like AJAX) that made Gmail and Google Maps possible on the desktop. In supporting these advances in web technology, the iPhone’s Safari browser enabled Google’s product and engineering teams to create an optimal Google experience on a mobile device.
Google’s commitment to provide users with access to information wherever they are is device-independent, the company said, and it is working to develop new mobile technologies that are faster, easier to use and available on more devices.
To use the new Google application, iPhone users need only point their web browser to www.google.com.
