Google Launches New, Ultra-Slick iPhone Interface

As if the marriage between the iPhone and Google wasn't solid enough. today Google released new interface made specifically for the Apple iPhone. The new interface puts many of Google's services/applications literally right at your fingertips.

iPhone Tops List of Fastest Growing Google Search Terms

Though it will probably come as no surprise to iPhone owners or those who frequent sites like this, the search term "iphone" has topped off Google's list of fastest growing search terms for 2007. iPhone was joined on the list by other non-surprises such as "heroes", "tmz", and "facebook".

Google Reader for iPhone Now Available

Yesterday, Google released a new version of their popular RSS feed reader intended for use on the Apple iPhone. Google created the new version of the reader as an exercise in using the Google Web Toolkit to create feature-rich applications for the iPhone. The Google Web Toolkit, or GWT, is a development toolkit which allows users to avoid the many pitfalls and frustrations of Javascript browser compliance when authoring AJAX web applications by letting programmers author these applications in Java.

Google Reader for the iPhone

Technically, the new web application isn't Google Reader. It's a more bare bones RSS reader and as such is formally called the GWT Feed Reader. That said, at the end of the day, it's a feed aggregator and reader that Google offers. Its desktop counterpart is Google Reader.

Though it probably comes as little surprise, the iPhone-geared Google Reader's interface jives quite nicely with

Google Now Offering Standard Mobile Interface to iPhone Users

Though it was previously revealed that Google was working on and offering an iPhone targeted search as part of their User Distributed Search project, Google is now seemingly suggesting that iPhone users use their standard mobile portal instead of the UDS search offering.
