Google Now Arrives on iOS As Part of Google Search 3.0

 This morning Google Search 3.0 arrived in the Apple iOS App Store giving millions of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch users access to Google Now, an "information assistant" that has been available on Android-powered smartphones for the past year.

Once you have activated the Google Now feature in the Google Search app, you can use Google Now to see time and weather updates based on your current location, get notices of breaking news and your favorite sports teams, area restaurants, and currency exchange rates.

Rumors that Google Now was coming to Apple's mobile operating system appeared back on March 12 when a leaked video showing off Google Now's iOS tutorial video appears and was quickly pulled down from YouTube.

For more information, visit the Google Now website.  Google Search is a free application in the iOS App Store (link). To use the Google Now features, you must be running iOS 5.0 or later.
