New Google search app for Android gets outed, pulled


While not in the realm of some of Sony Ericsson's gaffes -- as far as pulled images and news, that is -- Google did its level best by throwing up a new version of its integrated search app for Android and then promptly pulling it. New features in the magically disappearing app include: a svelte new interface with categorized results which puts web hits up top then contacts and more in the rows below. Also added is the ability to long press search history to remove questionable search items and country-specific results in countries with Google domains -- think,, and so on. This may be part of the big search monster's ongoing efforts to "evolve the Google design and experience" across all platforms. Sadly, search fanatics out there will have to wait to get their hands on this as Google fixes whatever evolutionary gremlins have wandered into its code.
