Buggy search widget on iOS 14 (fixed)Updated my review as this issue was fixed even before the review was moderated and published 🙂
TL;DR: voice search requires two clicks and about two seconds of load time before it registers speech. This only occurs on a fresh load (e.g., when not allowing the app to run in the background). Current Behavior: I click the microphone button on the widget. Google opens on its home screen. After about a second the “tap the mic” screen auto opens. The microphone appears to be listening for about a second but doesn’t register any sound. Finally the mic button comes back at which point I can click it and speak. Expected Behavior: I click the microphone button on the widget. Google opens on the microphone screen, registers my speech and executed the search. Note: if I let Google run in the background rather than quitting the app when I’m done it works as expected. However I don’t ever leave apps running. I always quit an app when I’m done using it..Version: 170.0
I’m disappointedI know people may not have a problem with this but my google is being annoying right now. So usually when I would search up images, it would show some other images once I click on it. Then I have the option to save and that. Now every single time I click on a picture, it sends me to the website on where it’s from. I don’t want the website, I just wanna see the picture and save it on my camera roll. Now it’s annoying how long it takes me save an image. I’m always seeing the website with its picture. I sometimes like the other photos under that image I search up. I sometimes wanna save them. Now? it takes me at least two-four minutes just to save a picture.
I just want my old google back :(.Version: 61.0
Slowly deterioratingGoogle was great, but the issue is that minor inconveniences such as taking Google Search off iMessage is really annoying. From there I could do a quick search or a location to send much quicker via text. Not anymore! Another thing, the app gets slower and more cluttered with each update. I do not use Safari as much due to the fact that it feels “heavier” and more cluttered, but now I’m seeing pointless news articles that are absolutely irrelevant to me as an individual. All of the data mining and theft your company does, and you can’t even match my interests? Even if you could match my interests, you wouldn’t be able to do it because you are Google. Furthermore the articles are pointless anyways because of the News app and third party apps that I can download. Slowly but surely, Google is turning into a lesser search engine like Yahoo or Bing..Version: 128.0
Missing from Serbian AppStoreThis app is missing from Serbian iOS AppStore for more than a year since Serbian iOS AppStore has been enabled and all the developers have been informed in March 2020. All developers have enabled their apps but most of google apps are not available on Serbian iOS AppStore so we cannot download or update our apps or write feedback, except here, and only when we manually change our regions to us and lose all our paid subscriptions in order to be able to send feedback through the AppStore . So this is the only way we, Serbian users, can share our feedback. Official support does not want to help us and we pay for services we cannot use. So, please, inform your devs to enable this apps ob Serbian iOS AppStore ASAP. We will soon reach out to media to make wider attention to this issue and google discrimination of Serbian users if not fixed soon. Thanks..Version: 157.0
AkstylesThe only search engine I trust and has been my go to since the conception of the term. I’m really loving the personalized news feeds. As someone who intentionally avoids today’s unreliable news sources, especially from social media apps, the google news feed has been a welcome addition to my routine. I no longer have to miss out on reading articles I may be interested in because of my choice to not login to FB. Instead I often find articles I’m interested in through my google feed in between searching for things.
Google Search is one of my top 5 most used apps. Their reliability and commitment to being the best in my opinion has hands down beat any other apps. I’m sticking with google for the long haul..Version: 54.0
Losing pages.If I’m on a page and I have to either step away so my phone goes to sleep or switch screens, it resets to the homepage search bar. Not all the time, but enough that it’s incredibly irritating. I’ll have to scroll all the way back down to where I was (I love reading comments on articles, so sometimes it’s a lot of scrolling) to continue reading. This has only become a problem in the last few updates, I believe since the overall look has changed. Sometimes the page I was on will be completely gone from the history as well, saying I have no browsing history when I clearly do, as I was JUST reading something. Then I have to remember what I searched and the title of the article.
Apps are supposed to be streamlined, quick & beneficial. I might as well read on a computer. Fix this, please..Version: 46.0
The Interface is Getting ClutteredIt was nice having the streamlined layout of the app several versions before, and with every update version, the interface loads up with more buttons of questionable interest, and an excess of information that would be best left hidden or condensed. The tab feature is also getting cluttered with excessive numbers of saved pages after simple searches. I do not need a new window every time I want to view a new image, I just want to browse in peace. This is a petty and personal issue that doesn’t impede the app’s usefulness, so I will leave this with a decent rating, but I would greatly appreciate it if options for less screen filler were available in future updates. Thanks to whoever may see this..Version: 38.0
Good as Expected but...This app basically does exactly what you’d think a Google app would do. For that reason, it’s a fine app. I deleted this app though because I didn’t see the advantage of keeping it when I could just use a mobile browser to search on Google. I wouldn’t even think twice about downloading this app again if it incorporated just 1 specific thing... the first is that I wish this app had a reverse image search feature similar to Pinterest’s. Google already has a reverse image search option for non-mobile users (PC, Mac, etc.) in the browser, but the Google app doesn’t have this function for mobile use. So I would think that a reverse image search right on your mobile device would be brilliant. I would probably delete my Pinterest app if the Google app had this function..Version: 49.0
Google window on the bottom of screenI like using this app, however, I really dislike the google window at the bottom of the page. It’s in the way when I need to make a selection at the bottom of the screen. I know how to make it smaller so I can make a selection. It’s just to much work just to see the bottom of the screen. Most times I just give up and click open page in Safari so I don’t have deal with it. Its also slightly annoying because it never goes away and I don’t see an option to close it. The only time it goes away is when I scroll up which does me no good if I want to look at the very bottom of the page. It would be much better if it was hidden at the top of the screen and I can just swipe down if I want to see it. At least give an option to close the box..Version: 36.0
Has been my favorite app but has been crashing for weeks nowThis app has been my favorite iPhone app but a recent update led to constant consistent crashing issues. Any time I try to use it it crashes. This began to occur after an update. I have looked ever day for an update assuming the developers would want to repair a problem that leads to complete inability to use app, but nothing.
I have begun to look into other search apps as the lack of any response is concerning. I have not yet found one I like as much, but honestly ANYTHING that works is wayyy better than typing in a search getting result only to have the app ALWAYS crash. When trying to get the result. Gave three stars because of the very slow response, but would have given 4/5 stars before this problem which renders the app useless..Version: 109.0
Good App, only one problemI’ve been getting this pop up lately on Google and Google Chrome that basically says “Congratulations, you have been selected...” and all that. It’s a scam. It’s really consistent and it won’t go away even after clearing my cookies on my phone. It doesn’t happen on Safari and only on Google products on my phone. I tried deleting the app and I even reset my phone and nothing has worked. One way you can improve is to add a feature to Google that stops frequent pop ups like that because this is getting out of hand. That’s the only problem I have with it, everything else is fine. And trust me, it’s not just me who is dealing with all of this. I hope this will be solved soon..Version: 41.0
Once critical app now unstable under iOS12I have used this app since its early days, a majority of my experience was excellent: on an iPad Pro, it was a godsend in split-screen mode when I needed to pull content from several sources into my primary apps by dragging or pasting.
Once iOS updated to its current release, this is the least stable and highest-lag of Google’s iOS offerings (several of which also suffer under iOS12).
I didn’t understand when the ‘tools’ option was suddenly deactivated on image searches, but tolerated it because the app overall was still strong.
Now, I use this app only when I can afford to have it freeze or crash. Scrolling through saved item collections is impossibly laggy, with several seconds elapsing between a touch or drag and the app responding — when it does scroll, it stutters and freezes.
I have a top-tier current-gen iPad Pro with 70% of internal storage available, and would hope Google values stability and performance over feature-adds that aren’t ready for public release.
Please fix this, Google: an app that is fragile and unreliable is an app uninstalled. I’ve invested in the enterprise products you offer and rely on them daily (if not hourly) to do my job..Version: 65.0
Doesn’t work half the timeI’ve had this app for a few years and it’s happened intermittently, but it seems to have gotten worse recently. I’ll search something and then just...... nothing. The screen will be and stay blank indefinitely, not loading a single result. Blue bar will fill up, but nothing shows up. I’ve tried it on multiple different wifi networks, using data in various locations, force quit the app and restarted, to no avail. I’ll then go search the same thing on the Safari app and it’ll immediately load. So I’m inclined to think that it’s a problem with the app’s functionality, not user error. The next day or so it’ll start functioning properly, only to go back to being broken again. It was convenient, but now it’s just infuriating.Version: 137.2
Fix History and ImagesThe way you delete and look at your search history along with Google images has recently been updated, and it needs to go back. First off, the best feature of your Search History, the ability to delete all of it at once, has been removed and replaced with a day by day basis which is much more difficult to manage. Also, the way you view images when you search has been changed and looks atrocious. It’s clunky, and you can no longer look at images in full screen. It appears to be a terrible attempt at trying to make it look like the desktop image search. Please, please, bring back the old History and Images search, as they are superior and easier to use than what has been added..Version: 69.0
Could be an amazing app but...I really like this app, but lately I have been pretty frustrated with it. This wasn’t happening at first, but now when I open the recently visited websites tab after I’ve been using the app to try and navigate to another page it won’t go to the page I want. It is happening fairly often too. It’s not that big of a deal, because I can get there by either typing it into the address bar or closing out of and restarting the app (sometimes this doesn’t work though). But it’s a real pain and can prevent me from setting aside a page or make me lose my progress on something like it just recently did. The mishap is actually what prompted me to write this review. If this problem were to go away the app would get a full 5 stars from me..Version: 52.2
New UpdateUpdate: it seems like it’s gone back to how it was before, much appreciated! There are still a few freezes here and there where I have to restart the app, but nothing worth writing home about.
I’m not a fan of the page changes of the most recent update. The Share button is now where the Bookmark button was, which is now where the Refresh button was, which is just gone for some reason. Also they got rid of the back button in the top left that allowed you to go back from the Open-in-new-tabesque feature, which is a major inconvenience to be honest. Overall not happy with it. It just seems like a pointless change that doesn’t make much sense..Version: 127.0
What happenedGoogle has been the word that changed social media as well as the internet almost as soon as Google hit the internet. We no longer just "browsed" the internet or "searched", we now "googled" and soon just about everyone knew exactly what we were talking about. To google became the very personification of searching for info on the internet.
Not sure what happened but I just deleted google as it has gone wonky. At first I thought it was just my iPad but when all the other apps are working as well as they ever did...except for google, it had to be the app, or google. Can't give it five stars as a result. It seems even google has issues. Just doesn't seem as reliable as before..Version: 50.1
MAJOR ISSUE NEEDS TO BE FIXEDHey google,
Lemme start by saying hat I love your app. It’s efficient, smart, and the best search engine! I just have one major issue that needs to be fixed. When I look up TV shows, what really helps is that I can see the exact time and channel a TV show will be airing on TV. Instead of browsing my TV guide for hours, this is way more useful. However, it appears that you have removed that feature and it has become incredibly frustrating and annoying. That’s one of the main reasons I loved the app, because of the “TV guide.” So can you please bring it back? That will allow me and many others to continue enjoying the app at its fullest. Thank you and please fix this..Version: 51.1
Very good app, however only one problemI use google all the time for researching in school homework and useful website etc. However, sometimes I search a topic up. Let’s say I searched up “How to cook waffles.” Then I wanna search something else up, let’s say I wanna search up “how to cook eggs” now the problem here is when I search a second thing it should say on the search bar that I searched “how to cook eggs” but for some reason instead of saying that. It shows “how to cook waffles.” And if I search something else up that topic will show but “how to cook waffles” will still be there. Now it’s not a big deal but it just gets really annoying when it happens..Version: 41.0

Would be a good beta versionIt is nice to have the Google app to curate news stories. The most recent version as of June 2019 makes it appear to be easier to tweak seeing news you like and deemphasize stuff not of interest. Unfortunately you still need a separate app to follow the stock market. There are still bugs where the app says it can’t contact Google’s servers to update stories or web pages you’ve been reading suddenly are replaced with a white screen: “the web page is currently unavailable. There are also random times when the main page only displays one or two articles. Instead of adding features, I would rather Google fix the usability issues of previous versions that are still in this version..Version: 76.0
Um, photos automatically go to links now?I loved using google but now it’s odd to use because I wanted to look up photo references for a project of mine and now every time I tap on an image it goes to the website and sometimes you have to dig on some of those websites it takes you to just to find the darn image. It’s odd considering the fact that if you use the actual google website on a laptop the images don’t do this but now on phones they decided that it would be a good idea? Not a very good one at all. Also, when you’re trying to look up arguments on both sides and it only shows more left side leaning even though I’ll specifically look up the right view because I need both sides for an actual good political debate for my government class..Version: 61.0
A little buggyI’ve used this app for many years, but over the past year or so it has got buggy. First, switching to incognito can take literally a minute or longer. Why? Same for switching back from incognito. Then when searching it will all of a sudden blank out the bottom half of the page where you can no longer see any search results. You have to research to see all results again. Finally, when opening the app it takes several seconds to begin a search. You’ll begin typing only to discover it wasn’t ready and see just the last few letters of your search result showing in the search box. Weird. Why does it take so long? These issues don’t occurs with the Chrome app, so what’s up Google?.Version: 58.0
Love it but needs a fix.I love the google app. In fact I use it more often than I use safari. The app is quick it’s simple and it is very convenient. HOWEVER, upon using it this early morning, I noticed a change. When I go to type in something, for example “cute cats”, it will of course bring up the links and websites with related photos. Although that is helpful, when I move my finger to the right and tap on images the images are brought up in a gallery as usual. The problem lies where when I am scrolling through I tapped a photo to see it closer, which is how I’m used to doing. But instead of that picture popping up, when I tapped it or any image, it just jumped and brought me to the actual website. Super frustrating..Version: 61.0
Wonderful app for daily lifestyleGoogle is my friend, and this app makes the power of the famous search engine accessible in just a few taps. Like its desktop counterpart, the Google app makes it easier to find what I really need, without the hassle of using another rival search engine or looking in the newspaper every day. In addition to keeping up with my personal and favorite interests, this app allows me to keep tabs on the news, the current weather, and other things. In short, Google is the only source AND search engine I trust each day to get things done. Give it a try. You won’t be disappointed! 🙂.Version: 109.0
