Google Adds iPhone And Android App Results For Quick Mobile Search

If you've spent much time searching through your iPhone or Android phone's respective app store and wished you could just use your friendly neighbourhood Google search box, good news: Google just added iPhone and Android search results to mobile search.

The bad news: It doesn't work all that well yet. Some popular apps, like Pandora's streaming radio app, showed up just like expected (I searched both "download shazam" and "shazam app"). Others — including popular apps like Dropbox or TweetDeck — didn't. We'd imagine Google will work hard to improve this over time, so it's certainly a quick app search alternative worth keeping in mind.

It's currently only available in the US, it will be coming to other countries and devices.
