Google Mobile App for iPad now available

From Google Blog

We’re pleased to announce that a new iPad-friendly version of Google Mobile App is now available in the App Store worldwide. By “iPad-friendly”, we mean that this new version has been designed to show neatly on the iPad’s screen, and that the usual features of Google Mobile App for iPhone, like search by voice and My Location, work well. From the Apps tab, you can also easily navigate to Google’s web-based apps, such as Gmail, which was recently optimized for iPad.

While this first version of Google Mobile App for iPad is essentially the same app we’ve built for iPhone, we’re working on improving Google Mobile App so that it takes advantage of iPad’s features. Stay tuned as we continue to make it and other Google products even better on this new type of device.

To download Google Mobile App to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch (requires OS 3.0 or higher), search for “Google Mobile App” in the App Store

I have the iPhone version of this on my iPhone. It's a great app. The voice search is awesome. Very accurate because I think they send the voice file down to their server in California and analyze it there, comparing it to millions of other voice searches. It's astounding how bang on it it. I have put this app on my home screen and use it for almost all my searches. It also has the Google411 which is a (free) voice-controlled number lookup service.

I assume that the iPad has a microphone so these services would work.
