Google Adds Android, iPhone Apps to Mobile Search Results

The next time you do a search on on your iPhone or any Android phone, don’t be surprise to find search results that links to the Android Market or iTunes app store.  Google has just started adding these direct download links to its Google for Mobile Search. The new feature is being rolled to U.S. mobile phone users first while users in other countries will have to wait for a little while.

If you go to using your iPhone or Android devices and search for an app, Google will display a special link and content at the top of the search results. Tapping on these links will bring you to either the Android market or iTunes App Store.  The search results also include a brief overview what the app is about, its price, ratings available as well as the app’s publisher.  These type of search results appear whenever your search query is related to mobile application such as “download Shazam,” “Twitter app for iPhone,” and others.
