Windows Phone 7 is a great OS. But you know what’s bad? The Bing search results that are displayed when you use the dedicated search button. That should no longer be a problem though given that Google has now released their search application for the WP7 platform. The Google Search app is wonderfully built and uses the phone’s location to deliver local results. Also, users have the ability to easily access search history to repeat their search queries.
The application can now be downloaded from the Windows Phone 7 marketplace and while Google cannot be replaced as the default search engine that is accessed from the search button, users may always bookmark the search app to the Start screen in order to access the application easily.
It will be interesting to see if Google on Windows Phone 7 turns out to be a much more popular application than Bing app on Android. Has to be, right?
