I use my iPhone to browse the Internet quite a lot, actually. I’ll visit at least four or five webpages per day on average. It’s a great device to use too, because everything works smoothly and there are many websites optimized for mobile devices. But what about an enhanced experience — something that you’re used to on your desktop computer? What about Chrome for iPhone?

Luckily for those of you who use the browser, Google released an iOS version of their famous multi-platform browser on Thursday. It brings everything you loved about the Android version (if you used it) and a few of the great features included in the desktop app to your iPhone. Chrome on the iPhone has the potential to be a great browser, but let’s take a deeper look. (more…)

I’m big fan of Google. I use almost all their web apps and the ones I don’t use probably are geographically locked — but that’s on the web. On the mobile, it’s a totally different story altogether. From Google Reader to Calendar and Docs, all my favorite apps on the web don’t have a native iOS app.

But they’ve all been present in the Android Market for a long time now. Then there are native iOS version of apps like Gmail that blows. The Google Search app for iOS has been around forever. While not as horrible as the Gmail app, it wasn’t mind blowing either — up until now. Follow me after the fold to learn how the new version of Google Search has made me a believer. (more…)

Last week, the Internet was all in a tizzy about the latest video out of Google, a concept titled Project Glass. It’s this headset that puts a single screen in front of your right eye and displays information about the environment you’re in. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a moment and check out the video, it’s worth the time.

Some are saying that this idea is genius, while others are chastising it as a dumb move and a piece of vaporware. But it does open up a conversation, particularly in regards to the iPhone: What is the future of the device?  (more…)

The Internet was all abuzz last week with talk of Google’s Project Glass, a concept video for a visor mounted HUD that you’d wear daily. More on the concept later this week, but we’ve got a question for all of you: Do you think Apple will (or is currently) working on some concept similar to Project Glass?

It seems kind of crazy, but we want to know what you think. Let us know in the poll to the right.

When you think of website search engines, it’s big-name brands like Google or Yahoo! which come to mind — even Microsoft’s Bing is doing very well in the rankings. However, there is an underdog in the mix and it’s not Dogpile.

DuckDuckGo Search is a very simple engine which borrows a lot of traits from Google’s UI. Their search functionality is easy to use and also includes extra features for custom searches — in this way you can limit to specific domain names or even search in alternate places such as Wikipedia. Their web app is certainly fantastic, but the company has done an even better job for their iOS app, which we’ll delve into after the break.

When it comes to reading on the iPhone, there are no shortage of apps out there that let you catch up on the latest blogs, books, magazine, newspapers, etc. But there are very few that are able to present you with your content on a small screen like the iPhone in a great and visual way.

Recently, Google threw itself into the ring with its own version of a reading app, named Google Currents. Unfortunately, they had a bit of poor planning on the launch as they came out a day or so after Flipboard released its amazing iPhone app. Can Google enter this crowded space and be a dominant force on the iPhone or is this just another reader that will slowly fade away? Let’s check it out more and you can see for yourself.

Google Reader is by far one of my favorite services. In case you haven’t used it, Google Reader allows you to read all your RSS feeds on the same place, share them and add notes to them easily. It’s been available for quite some time now, and it’s just great because it’s simple and reliable. Since I got my iPhone, I’ve been reading my feeds using Google Reader straight from Safari since they have a mobile version (which is pretty good I might add). Lately though, since Flipboard for iPhone was launched, I’ve been reading all my Google Reader news from that app.

But to change things up a bit, I decided to take a look at GoReader. It’s an app that works specifically with Google’s service and syncs everything as well. Let’s see if it’s a viable replacement for its competitors.
