Slow to respond and typing lag
1MikeyD on 2/19/2018
2/19/2018 Google has gotten so sluggish over the last year. I’ve deleted the app. Gone to another search engine. It used to be great, but the lag and delay is terrible, wishing google would fix it.
Weird and spooky
RefuseModernSlavery on 2/19/2018
Google is designed to spy and track us. This AI app records random conversations, tracks your every move. Even if you think that you've turned all the settings off, they reset the default value. I can't even delete the account.Also everything I do im required to repeatedly sign-in and do 2 step verification. Like someone is trying to steal my password or delays my actions of trying to delete all the stuff Google activities has recorded. Then I have an adwords account I never set up. Plus Google is selling all the information to the NSA and other alphabet boys. This app is not to be trusted and with it being open source any weirdo can be an administrator and take over your account and control your device remotely.So no I don't like your fonky application but it was recording data from my device when I wasn't even signed in. To everyone out tgere GOOGLE IS BIG BROTHER!!!!!
3 stars

Doesn’t deserve more than 3 stars

by far the most useful app on my phone. i cant imagine where i’d be without it (probably with safari ew)
My love affair with Google
RecGirl113 on 2/19/2018
There is not a single day that I do not look something up on Google. Growing up in the 50’s and 60’s, the only fact book available was the encyclopedia. If you did not own a set (which I didn’t) you had to go to the library. Google is instantaneous and readily available on your cell. Love it, can’t do without it!
It’s the best
got serenity on 2/19/2018
How did I ever get through life without it
The best App ever!!
Omar gior on 2/19/2018

The best browser for alternative input.

Google is the I have ALS and have to type with my eye’s one letter at a time Google recognizes more with and make life easier.
Will Not Search
slikdowg on 2/18/2018
Every since I upgraded, this app will not download files. You need to go back to the drawing board.
Excellent search engine

Number 1 in my book

Force fed news
Tired of intrusive ads on 2/18/2018
Why since the update is google force feeding us the news they want us to see? Since the update you can not remove the “news” stories. It’s so bad I just turned it off. Bring back the ability to dump the junk stories that google pushes.
News filters are terrible
gtsully on 2/18/2018
The search functionality is fine, whatever. But the news stories that the app shows you are atrocious, and somehow getting worse. You used to be able to mark the stories and sites that you didn’t like, and you wouldn’t see them again. Then that stopped working, as the same stories would cone right back under “trending” or “popular” stories, or whatever they called them. Super annoying. Then they got rid of the ability to filter out unwanted material, but at least you could still dismiss the stories. They made it harder to do, of course (two taps through a menu instead of a single swipe), but it worked. And now that’s gone too! So I’m stuck with a newsfeed that’s half tabloid garbage and maybe 20% stories that I’m interested in. Thanks for nothing.
Doesn’t allow iPhone X desktop site

Doesn’t allow iPhone X desktop site
my nickname is pickle on 2/18/2018
It takes a lot of time for Google to download my phone has 7 GB but it doesn't work it doesn't download at all
Doesn’t work on every network
ShortyMIA on 2/17/2018
Sometimes it gets hung up on different networks and it doesn’t make sense to use. I’m not sure if it’s my iPhone 7+ or the internet but it’s frustrating when trying to search.
Works great
gringo6969 on 2/17/2018
I’ve been using the app for a long time working great and helps me a lot thank you
Nice app now becoming to PC!!!
Boogster1 on 2/17/2018
I really Love the google iOS features over the android version and love the image download feature(which is not accessible on the android version). The only real gripe I have is that it is selling out to the mass corporate and PC contributors.. But thats the world today sellouts and fake news!
Boinkasnibbersnapper on 2/17/2018
Crashing, please fix ASAP
Great app to use for browsing.
Dimer3 on 2/17/2018
I’ve used Google since I started high school. It is hands down one of the best apps the iPhone has to offer. Even though the Safari app already has Google, the app can be a backup option to use whenever.
Best of all apps
Sonidocrudo radio on 2/17/2018
Nothing to say but it’s the best.
Bring back the swipe right
Ikki no Phoenix on 2/17/2018
How in the hell did the developers decided to remove a essential feature that everybody uses? Is pathetic not having the ability to swipe right to dismiss a card you don't want any longer or doesn't interest you and now you have to tab on the 3 stupid little dots to only hide the card and not get rid off it, YES hide it only because if you refresh the app the story you hid comes back to hunt you. Google devs clearly have no idea or care about the end user, they only do what their money greed executives tell them to do. FAK U!
Keeps freezing up
teaangelica10 on 2/17/2018
Never had a problem on my iPhone with Google until about 5 days ago. It will freeze up for a few minutes and then the app shuts down. It happens every few minutes. So frustrating that I deleted it from my phone.
Best Search Engine Ever!
Raiell45 on 2/17/2018
It’s my Go-To for all types of information!
Ciwboyredneck on 2/16/2018
They need to speed the app up some and it always freezes on me would have given 5 stars but till the speed improves only 2 stars

Muy buena app
The Best!
IslandGirl10001 on 2/16/2018
I briefly tried other search engines. Google is still primo!
Better performance on iphone 6
somberlink on 2/16/2018
Thanks for the improvements
bring back weather frog :(
iminvisableful on 2/16/2018
Please bring back the weather frog :( I use the app everyday but I really miss weather frog since he disappeared with a newer update. Weather frog made the app worth 5 stars.
My cards won’t load
hshshwhisiiijd on 2/16/2018
My cards aren’t loading and I love reading those articles. Please fix 😩
Great app, but I have an issue
Chicken noodle soup man on 2/16/2018
App works great, but I’m tired of having to turn off on device search history. I don’t want my search suggestions crowded with things I’ve already gotten an answer for. Google please fix
Lae1997 on 2/16/2018
Lately my app has been freezing. I open and try to type a question and it won’t type or takes forever to load
Good update
Loadgiver on 2/16/2018
Keep up the good work
Great source for searching up things
Gala_Ch on 2/16/2018
Google has always been there to answer my questions and has always satisfied me.
It’s sucky, but a good sucky.
I cuss a lot👍 on 2/16/2018
It’s nice, no lags, very fast, great voice detection, but the google apps don’t seem to be working.
Oops somebody forgot something.
Travler0 on 2/16/2018
I have an iPhone X and I just updated my Google app, now the app has no art or graphics anymore showing it’s my Google app, it’s just plain no graphics at all, I know you guys will fix that but I thought I’d let you know.
MRCheese_cake on 2/16/2018
App rarely works
أبوالحسن الصوان on 2/16/2018
What the f happened?
😳 wow!!! on 2/16/2018
So I see that Google just updated today. I go to write a review on an establishment and search high and low for a “write a review” button. Still don’t find it. I figured if you go to “see all reviews” and scroll all the way down there is an option to give stars and then it takes you to the review section but even then I can’t attach a picture or a video to my review. It’s slower than ever too. Ughhh
Bitmoji problem on 2/16/2018
The option for a Google on the keyboard for the iPhone is still wrong it still says that I’m in Phoenix when I live in Tucson Arizona and sometimes it says I live in Texas when I’m not in Texas all the nearby stuff is nowhere near me it’s about 1000 miles away for me and the keyboard needs to be fixed because the GPS location on it is wrong I’m not in the area that it says that I’m in
Superliker2M on 2/16/2018
This is good like I searched up jokes then it worked :)
Player: Nklander on 2/16/2018
I used to be able to just go into google no problem, but now it signed me out and I can't even sign back in, whenever I do it just says "Error" and I can't fix it, and it's affecting a lot of other things on my phone as well.
Kidkerry on 2/16/2018
I ask to find a part on a car and I get lol 1,345,640 results. Who in the hell needs that many worthless links that have nothing to do with my car part
SHEX_ARO on 2/16/2018
Too many large updates......
559flip559 on 2/16/2018
Love google first of all. My only dislike is how large almost each up date is... this latest one is 174 mb.... that’s like the equivalent of 10 min I guesstimate...what updates are we getting ... couple bug fixes here and there bla bla....all I’m getting at is I hate how I buy a iPad with limited storage then fill it with updates? Let’s see sum updates that say “ 45mb of unused or old data has been removed “ or sumthen lol
Google is the internet!
Kolache102 on 2/16/2018
I watch the market on Google, get my news on Google, and answer most questions on Google! Thanks for the development of such a tool! Keep on keeping on!!
Pop ups from amazon
Jjp660cc on 2/15/2018
I have always liked the app but I have been recently getting pop ups from amazon and I am at this point probably gonna delete it if there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s pop ups and you can’t even leave the screen other than that would be a 5 star rating
