Google's search tools on Android started digging up results from Android apps a while back. Now, the search app on iOS does the same. When you enter a query into the main Search app or the Chrome browser on an Apple device, the list of results will include the appropriate links to iOS apps. Of course, the company/developer will have to be part of Google's app index, and so far, handy software like Yelp, Foursquare, Expedia and several others are included on the list. If you're not seeing the new feature yet, sit tight: the folks in Mountain View are rolling it out to everyone over the next few days. There's no word on when, or if, Google will begin to pull info from apps on your iPhone -- or even those you've yet to download. Our bet is if a similar function arrives for iOS, Siri will handle those duties.
