Better Google Image Search for the iPhone

Google is giving iPhone users a bit of love by fine tuning their Image Search… this release is only for the iPhone and Android. Nothing to buy here… just launch your built in browser and search for an image.

Interesting is that the new Image Search look appears when you use the regular Google in your Web browser on the iPhone, not the iPad and not the address. The service sees your device type and changes the view to all images in equal sized squares and no text. This makes it much faster to zoom through many images to find the one you want.

You can still use the ‘Classic’ view of the Google Images Search (via the link at the bottom of the new view), but this requires you to zoom in on the resulting page to see the images and make the text go from little blurry lines to real words.

More particulars available on Google’s Mobile Blog.
