Google recently rolled out a new version of its dedicated search application for the Windows Phone platform. The application adds Google Instant and autocomplete, voice-dictated searching, and the ability to see what's nearby without actually searching for anything. The update is free and available from the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.

Consider Me Unimpressed

This is one of those apps that many people may try, just because it's Google. Hell, some people may think this app is better because it's Google. In my opinion, Bing search on WP7.5 is far superior to this Google app. Yes, it's Google and it does what it suppose to do but, is featureless compared to Bing search app.

From everything I've read on sites that have compared Bing and Google, it seems to depend on where you are in the world, when it comes to which one works best. From my experience, I have a hard time finding something that Google search can do that Bing can't. Initially, Bing was something that was inspiring to become a great search engine. Now that Bing has matured, it has become that great search engine.
