I count on google
Travellady08 on 1/23/2018
Anytime I need an answer, no matter what, I can always ask google and get an answer. I’m truly amazed at the technology but thankful for it!
Vicky4peace on 1/23/2018
My absolute favorite app.
Grown way too distracting to justify
Desposi on 1/23/2018
I’ve used this for awhile and I found its design is too focused on distracting us with news articles that are hard to ignore when they pop in front of you constantly but you can’t turn off news either without turning off the whole feed which has other more benign info in it like driving directions etc. So alas I deleted the app as it was hindering me more than helping me with anything. Treat this like you would treat any other distracting media app. Great default app to turn to especially for those with a google account
Issues in Google for Iphonex IOS7
Barbiekha on 1/23/2018
Hi Google team, I’m having issues in google since I have started using app in Iphone x. 70% times it gives me no connection and try again even after restarting the phone, WIFI several times. Please resolve this issue asap.
Please get rid of the stupid bar!!!
Chdtujnkksehb on 1/23/2018
I like the app. It’s quick and great but I hate the google bar at the bottom of the page. Most mobile sites have things for you to click on at the bottom of the page and that stupid pop-up bar makes it impossible to click them. I end up going to my home computer. A phone app is supposed to be easy. Just remove it already. Countless people have asked you too.
seamless, speedy, clean, satisfying

Worst app ever
Cel_Sol on 1/22/2018
Google doesn’t actually find proper searches. It spies on you and I have tried to delete it but it makes me use it if I want a gmail account. Talk about Orwellian.
Pop ups
Ghftfgatrefjausgbsh on 1/22/2018
First off we all would die without google! We all use it on a daily basis so... As the title says (and I’m sure you’ve experienced it) there has been “Amazon” pop ups giving you either an iPhone X or $1000. (so an iPhone X either way!) Normally this wouldn’t be a problem, but it’s inescapable! Once it appears you have to close the app! I know it’s a fake because all of the reviews are short and 5/5 there will always be a 1/5 review I mean look at google’s it has like 2 1 star reviews! Please fix this google!
Crashes when I try to share
januarhee on 1/21/2018
Every time I try to share an article I was reading through the app, it crashes. It’s so frustrating; please fix!
“Tray” when browsing results
Acrisp19837472&@1@" on 1/21/2018
I really can’t stand the new “tray” the persists when loading any result page. I get that the behavior includes hiding as I scroll, but I want an option to hide this. I’m more than capable of going back to look at additional results (and continuing my use of Google!) without this real estate hogging feature.
Identity theft

I had a google alert last week saying someone added there Mac to my account
My most used app on my phone
Tylerpaul1818 on 1/21/2018
I use this app more than any other. The only bad thing is how slow it is... not terrible but can be annoying if your trying to quickly find something.
Need Bookmarks
RR3121 on 1/21/2018
Please add bookmarks or a way to save or speed dial web pages. Or add Google Now to Chrome ( which already has bookmarks / favorites). The search and voice search are fantastic. Google Now is very cool. One simple modification and this app would blow all the others away - bookmarks or favorites. For those not getting very many cards with Google Now try syncing (and using Google Calendar), sync google plus, and use the app regularly. It gets better the more you use it. Google should also take a look at the app called Easilydo. There are number of functions in that app that could be added to Google Now.
App isn’t working right.
S chop on 1/21/2018
When I search, and then search something else, it still shows what I searched previously in the search bar. This has been going on for a few weeks and it’s frustrating.
Ads and spam are completely out of control
Hi_Im_Emma on 1/20/2018
I have Adblock on my iOS and that takes care of my browsers, but apparently not of this search app. I get terrible clickbait ads everywhere, pop ups, spam, and those pop ups that just move you to another phishing website and you can’t do anything and have to close the app and reboot it. I had to uninstall the app. Actually unbearable.
Won’t use anymore. HATE the front page.
Shayyyynnaaaasaa on 1/20/2018
The reason I loved google on desktop and mobile was because how simple the site was. No nonsense, just a search bar. I didn’t have to look at any part of the internet I didn’t want to see. I’ve had to stop using because it is spoiling all my favorite tv shows for me. If I open the app before I’ve seen an episode of something, it’s spoiled immediately because the app uses my interests to put relevant articles below the search bar. Also sometimes I need a break from all the upsetting things that go on and I never know what I’m going to see when I open google. It gives me anxiety! I’ve tried to delete these subjects and they only come back with time. Such a silly reason to not use an app, but I can just use my browser to search, that’s what’s happened.
How do you find a word on a webpage?
Bekasmash on 1/20/2018
It seems that with the latest update, you can no longer search for a word on a webpage. You used to be able, for example, see how many times the word “dog” appeared on a article or website. Why was this feature deleted? If it wasn’t, how the heck do I find a word?
Tornadoes hurricanes and much more
Bebo labib on 1/20/2018
Google is the best app ever because it has meteorologist stuff
what happened to the swipe gesture??
mikespry on 1/20/2018
why is it no longer possible to swipe away cards from the home view? having to click on the upper right corner of a card to then dismiss it from the pop up menu is such a step back in usability and usefulness of that home view :(
Google App Keeps changing my settings
Resjuda on 1/19/2018
The google app keeps turning on my search history AFTER I turn it off.
PnuttN on 1/19/2018
Use it all day long - entertainment for a 78 year old woman. Favorite expression - google it‼️
Best thing since sliced bread 😁
Dr.😇 on 1/19/2018
My most used app. A must have!!!
Better then Safari.
SuperKawaii"Shooting:3Girl" on 1/19/2018
Anyway, I'm typing with Google Keyboard. Its a nice keyboard, too. It's really helpful, too. Whenever my friends are looking for definitions, I can copy and paste the meaning. Then, the app. It's good! To me, it's more organized. I like when it looks spaced out, and stuff like that. Anyway, no problems for me! Bye!
(R1th 6) on 1/18/2018
Very Good
shark world 2.0 on 1/18/2018
Google is a great system and it worked really well it doesn’t take a long time to load and it always searches the things u want perfectly
Gets better with age
Pygnhdeeu on 1/18/2018
I've had this app for so long, it really just is my default all around. But please, oh PLEASE, bring back the swipe to dismiss cards... I thought I was going crazy one day when it suddenly didn't work anymore. BRING BACK SWIPE TO DISMISS!
Dog Play on 1/18/2018
I love google for all the great information on google. Faithful user, Sherilyn vogel
Forget Siri
TalkinMakeup on 1/17/2018
I titled this review “Forget Siri” because I do not ever get a straight answer from her however the google chic answers every question I ask her. Google is my everything as far as my go to app for accurate information it is an invaluable tool. Where else can you get can you get the weather, trending news, while getting a recipe and the correct spelling of supercalifragilistic
Cards not loading
toyzs22 on 1/17/2018
Turned off feed, turned back on. Cards still not loading. Was working before latest update. You might want to wait for next update.
Bad Update
mr enjoyment on 1/17/2018
By now on your phone or iPad you’re using it on the go if you swipe something it’s either to open it or make it go away and which case if you’re looking at updates by Google on your Google+ homepage and you swipe it left you normally want it to go away not automatically open to that page what a waste of time I don’t want to hit the icon that says hide this now I just want to swipe it away and let it be gone worst google update ever
1arf on 1/17/2018
Always helpful. Answers all my questions
7MileRed on 1/17/2018
This is my most used app. It’s my “go to” because of its many functions.
Horrible on 1/17/2018
Keeps going in horizontal, not compatible with ios
THE BULLY DON on 1/16/2018
Better than most other browsers
App continually freezes up
Boomer503 on 1/16/2018
Nothing works right since iOS released 11.2.5. Freezes up all the time and requires force closing and restarting. Hope an update comes out soon to fix.
No dark mode!
THEbestQuan on 1/15/2018
Unfortunately, I cannot find the feature I use most... dark mode! Other than that, the app is great.
BeLuDi25 on 1/15/2018
No matter what, you have to have this app, for security purposes or anything else you need!! Great job creators!!
️Zeena on 1/15/2018
I put "how are cookies made" it puts sex that's just NASTY 😡😡😡
Bring back swipe
aidhakar on 1/15/2018
I have no idea why the google headlines feature to swipe away stories after u are done was taken away. It is so obnoxious to individually click and hide each story. Really a step backwards
Couldn't live without it!
Rick Rick tick on 1/14/2018
Wouldn't want to Couldn’t live without it
AllenDiego on 1/14/2018
I once thought nothing could be better than Google’s search app. Now I’m constantly finding it to be unusable. Whenever a website places a link at the bottom of the page, I go to click it, and the google icon jumps up and gets in the way of clicking the link. It’s beyond annoying. Huge oversight.
Bring back swipe to remove news stories
lolokjuik on 1/14/2018
This used to be a 5 Star app. Please let us swipe to remove stories again.
Swipe to Dismiss?
Mlmatthews322 on 1/14/2018
I was going to use, and love, this app- very much. And then I realized I can’t swipe to dismiss cards. I’m not sure who designed this UI but please know, the interface stinks to use... it stinks enough that I can’t use the app simply due to the frustration it causes. Until next time, Google...
Amazaning job on 1/13/2018
Easy to use no hassle
Used to be perfect
Jrod2423 on 1/13/2018
The tab on the bottom of the app when you are searching or on a website is extremely annoying, doesn’t allow you to click on stuff on the bottom of a page. Other than that it works like it did before
Google loosing
Matthewjoynes on 1/13/2018
I remember being one of the first to adopt Google in the UK, these two crazy graduates I rooted for - there was honesty in the search it was easy to use Now I feel it’s become the very thing that other were we could see becoming - big corporate, driving us to websites , throwing ads at us - It was the little adopters that championed you over at that time the big brothers It’s now big brother it needs to get back to its simplicity - truthfulness - No traps for business or consumers One day someone will have a better solution and most likely it will be AI and no ad serving - no disingenuous search Rather than me discover that step back and say we did very well let’s give them back our true spirit -
Goggle Review
Do-a-Lou on 1/13/2018
I use Goggle exclusively when I need to search for information I need immediately or if I just want to expand my knowledge of a current geographical area .
Swipe keyboard
JenningsGraham on 1/13/2018
The reason I have this app is for the swipe keyboard. This may be the single greatest feature of this app, as my major complaint about iPhones has always been the lack of one. However, since the latest update (11.2.1), there has been quite a lag between me finishing a word and it being entered onto the screen. If I type too fast, words sometimes won't get displayed as they get"typed over." This is extremely frustrating and completely ruins the point of swipe (fast texting), and therefore, the app (in my particular case). It may be an Apple issue, since it has only been happening since the most recent update, but there may be something you guys can do about it. This is a 5 star app, but since the update has been a 2 star app. Please fix this issue. (I have an iPhone SE if that matters at all) Thanks

I freaking love google man ❤️
