Google’s most recent foray into the iOS platform is Google Places (somehow suffixed with “hotpot”), a location-based recommendation app with a web backup.

Google Places is one of Google’s ventures that is aimed at both businesses and consumers. The former being able to increase their exposure and the latter able to make more informed decisions on where they visit. Whilst location-oriented features have been available in Google Maps for a long time, this is one of the first proper offerings in the App Store.

Do you often find the web too cluttered on your iPhone or iPad, or find it too difficult to share what you’re reading with others? Today we’re going to look at a browser that was designed from the ground-up to provide a great online reading, bookmarking, and sharing experience on iOS.

Most of us have gotten used to using Safari for our daily iOS browsing; it’s fast, smooth, and gets the job done. But it’s not perfect. Adding support for Instapaper to Safari is difficult at best, and browsing between multiple pages can be confusing. Plus, if you want to take advantage of newer search engines, there’s no way to add new sites to Safari’s search box.

Cyberspace is a new browser that aims to tackle some of these problems. It integrates Instapaper deeply into your browsing experience so you can read any site easily on your device. Then, it lets you share anything you read with a number of popular social networks and bookmarking services, and keeps a list of articles you want to read handy. Let’s dive in and see if this browser is right for your needs.

Earlier this fall Google upgraded their Google Mobile App for the iPhone to include Google Goggles (try saying that ten times fast), a feature that was previously only available to Android users. In a nutshell, Google Goggles allows you to perform Google searches using images taken with your iPhone’s camera. Once you’ve installed the free Google Mobile App, Goggling (I’m not sure if that’s the official term) is as simple as tapping the camera icon to the right of the search bar and snapping a photo of the item in question.

Before you go too camera happy, it’s important to note that only certain types of items are likely to work with Google Goggles. The software is designed to recognize covers of books, DVDs and CDs as well as barcodes and logos. Goggles will also recognize some buildings and landmarks and will do it’s best to pull text from photos and to identify objects.

There’s no denying that Google Goggles looks impressive in a demo, but how well does it work in the real world? I put Google Goggles to the test, with some help from friends in Ottawa, London and Melbourne. The question du jour: is Goggles truly useful or a novelty that soon grows old?
