Location Services And More From Google Mobile App for Windows Mobile

I am a happy user of Google Mobile App on my iPhone and I use it extensively.
I have not used Google Mobile On Windows Mobile but I guess it is very similar if not the same. If you are Google user who happened also to be a Windows Mobile user, you have some good news.
Google Mobile team has added some new features for you that makes your mobile life some what easier, if that ever could be. I say that because every time one solves one problem there are ten more awaiting to spring up.
But here is a summery and a video about Google Mobile App for Windows Mobile;
  • My Location. Get local results without typing your location. Once you see the blue My Location dot with your current location below the search box, simply search for a local query, for example "italian restaurant", and the search results will contain local business results along with web results.

    To protect your privacy, location is encrypted when sent to the server, and only your most recent location is stored so that successive searches can use the same location. You can disable My Location at any time in the "Advanced Options" screen.
  • Google Suggest. Reduce typing time by selecting suggestions to complete your queries. You will also see URL suggestions, which bring you directly to a web page, skipping the search results page entirely. Try typing "facebook" to see this kind of suggestion.
  • Search with Maps. If you have installed Google Maps, type a local query and wait for suggestions. Select the suggestion with the red pin next to it to launch your search inside Google Maps.
