    Default Google Now for iOS Demoed in Leaked Video


    A video showcasing the alleged Google Now app built for the iOS platform was recently leaked to YouTube. The video seems to have the same promotional-style which touts the service’s major features including real time data acquisition and predictive actions. The video, which was originally spotted by Engadget teased Google Now for iPhone and iPad as it was posted to YouTube only to be pulled a few minutes later.

    In the short clip, the narrator describes a number of predictive features offered by the service which first launched on Android handsets in 2012, including real time navigation, air travel updates and accurate sports scores. Those of you interested in seeing the video, can see it below:



    One thing to note is that the authenticity of the video hasn’t been confirmed, though the overall style is very similar to that of Google’s previous Ads. Are you excited to use Google Now on your iOS device?

    Activoice in Cydia lets you bring up Google voice search instead of Siri.

    Oh I don't know- Siri becomes very useful when you install assistantlove, hands free and siritoggle.

    I can now open all of my most used apps with "launch" or "open"- and when I'm charging I can just say "Computer- open Remote" from a distance and it opens my remote control app

    Google Now and screen size are the two things that made me pick up a Nexus 4. Google Now is fantastic, but the greatest part of it is the way it integrates with the OS, which will never happen on iOS.

    On what device? It is very easy to use on newer devices.
    Not a waterboy for Android OR Apple.
