Google Search App Updated - Gets Google Now
Google has Monday issued a major update to the Google Search application for iOS, bringing it to version 3.0. The update adds support for Google Now, a feature that was until today, only available on Android devices.
When you launch the updated Google Search application for the first time after updating, you will be asked to sign in with your Google account. You will also start being walked through the Google Now tutorial, which explains all of the great features Google Now has available for you.
Google Now gives you all of the information that you need ‘now,’ such as how long until getting to work, your current weather conditions outside, the statistics of your favorite sport teams, news stories, flight information, currency rates, and more. Check out Google's Google Now Video below:

One thing to be wary of is that Google Now will be almost always using your location, so you might notice a significant drain in battery life after using it. The feature is available universally among iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads.
Existing users of the Google Search application will find the update under the Updated tab in the App Store. Alternatively, you can download the updated Google Search application absolutely free via this App Store link
