News filters are terrible 1/5
The search functionality is fine, whatever.
But the news stories that the app shows you are atrocious, and somehow getting worse. You used to be able to mark the stories and sites that you didn’t like, and you wouldn’t see them again. Then that stopped working, as the same stories would cone right back under “trending” or “popular” stories, or whatever they called them. Super annoying.
Then they got rid of the ability to filter out unwanted material, but at least you could still dismiss the stories. They made it harder to do, of course (two taps through a menu instead of a single swipe), but it worked.
And now that’s gone too! So I’m stuck with a newsfeed that’s half tabloid garbage and maybe 20% stories that I’m interested in. Thanks for nothing.
Doesn’t allow iPhone X desktop site 1/5
Doesn’t allow iPhone X desktop site
By my nickname is pickle
It takes a lot of time for Google to download my phone has 7 GB but it doesn't work it doesn't download at all
Doesn’t work on every network 3/5
Sometimes it gets hung up on different networks and it doesn’t make sense to use. I’m not sure if it’s my iPhone 7+ or the internet but it’s frustrating when trying to search.
Works great 5/5
I’ve been using the app for a long time working great and helps me a lot thank you
Nice app now becoming to PC!!! 3/5
I really Love the google iOS features over the android version and love the image download feature(which is not accessible on the android version). The only real gripe I have is that it is selling out to the mass corporate and PC contributors.. But thats the world today sellouts and fake news!
Crashing, please fix ASAP
Great app to use for browsing. 5/5
I’ve used Google since I started high school. It is hands down one of the best apps the iPhone has to offer. Even though the Safari app already has Google, the app can be a backup option to use whenever.
Best of all apps 5/5
By Sonidocrudo radio
Nothing to say but it’s the best.
Bring back the swipe right 1/5
By Ikki no Phoenix
How in the hell did the developers decided to remove a essential feature that everybody uses? Is pathetic not having the ability to swipe right to dismiss a card you don't want any longer or doesn't interest you and now you have to tab on the 3 stupid little dots to only hide the card and not get rid off it, YES hide it only because if you refresh the app the story you hid comes back to hunt you.
Google devs clearly have no idea or care about the end user, they only do what their money greed executives tell them to do. FAK U!
Keeps freezing up 1/5
By Lil swaga
Never had a problem on my iPhone with Google until about 5 days ago. It will freeze up for a few minutes and then the app shuts down. It happens every few minutes. So frustrating that I deleted it from my phone.
Best Search Engine Ever! 5/5
It’s my Go-To for all types of information!
They need to speed the app up some and it always freezes on me would have given 5 stars but till the speed improves only 2 stars
Me gusta 5/5
Muy buena app
The Best! 5/5
I briefly tried other search engines. Google is still primo!
Better performance on iphone 6 4/5
Thanks for the improvements
bring back weather frog :( 3/5
Please bring back the weather frog :( I use the app everyday but I really miss weather frog since he disappeared with a newer update. Weather frog made the app worth 5 stars.
My cards won’t load 3/5
My cards aren’t loading and I love reading those articles. Please fix 😩
Great app, but I have an issue 3/5
By Chicken noodle soup man
App works great, but I’m tired of having to turn off on device search history. I don’t want my search suggestions crowded with things I’ve already gotten an answer for. Google please fix
Lately my app has been freezing. I open and try to type a question and it won’t type or takes forever to load
Good update 5/5
Keep up the good work
Great source for searching up things 4/5
Google has always been there to answer my questions and has always satisfied me.
It’s sucky, but a good sucky. 4/5
By I cuss a lot👍
It’s nice, no lags, very fast, great voice detection, but the google apps don’t seem to be working.
Oops somebody forgot something. 5/5
I have an iPhone X and I just updated my Google app, now the app has no art or graphics anymore showing it’s my Google app, it’s just plain no graphics at all, I know you guys will fix that but I thought I’d let you know.
App rarely works
By أبوالحسن الصوان
What the f happened? 1/5
By 😳 wow!!!
So I see that Google just updated today. I go to write a review on an establishment and search high and low for a “write a review” button. Still don’t find it. I figured if you go to “see all reviews” and scroll all the way down there is an option to give stars and then it takes you to the review section but even then I can’t attach a picture or a video to my review. It’s slower than ever too. Ughhh
By Bitmoji problem
The option for a Google on the keyboard for the iPhone is still wrong it still says that I’m in Phoenix when I live in Tucson Arizona and sometimes it says I live in Texas when I’m not in Texas all the nearby stuff is nowhere near me it’s about 1000 miles away for me and the keyboard needs to be fixed because the GPS location on it is wrong I’m not in the area that it says that I’m in
This is good like I searched up jokes then it worked :)
By Player: Nklander
I used to be able to just go into google no problem, but now it signed me out and I can't even sign back in, whenever I do it just says "Error" and I can't fix it, and it's affecting a lot of other things on my phone as well.
I ask to find a part on a car and I get lol 1,345,640 results. Who in the hell needs that many worthless links that have nothing to do with my car part
I APPRECIATE YOUR APP
Too many large updates...... 1/5
Love google first of all. My only dislike is how large almost each up date is... this latest one is 174 mb.... that’s like the equivalent of 10 min I guesstimate...what updates are we getting ... couple bug fixes here and there bla bla....all I’m getting at is I hate how I buy a iPad with limited storage then fill it with updates? Let’s see sum updates that say “ 45mb of unused or old data has been removed “ or sumthen lol
Google is the internet! 5/5
I watch the market on Google, get my news on Google, and answer most questions on Google! Thanks for the development of such a tool! Keep on keeping on!!
Pop ups from amazon 3/5
I have always liked the app but I have been recently getting pop ups from amazon and I am at this point probably gonna delete it if there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s pop ups and you can’t even leave the screen other than that would be a 5 star rating
Sends ads as notifications 1/5
Used to be google. Use it to search stuff. Now it’s telling me black panther is in theaters. Removed from my phone.
It’s the one to use 5/5
By Twicky boy
Every time I use google talk to search for things it will take long to hear my voice and response was lagging...I would say what time is Costco business hours for today and or what is Safeway phone number, it always seems to have a lag at times. I hope this update fixes that.
The best thing ever 5/5
This got me out of a lot of situations that I didn't want to be in. This app is just terrific.
I tried to get it so be careful cause it can shock u
By Cousin Juno
No longer having to run for dictionary or encyclopedia and thumb through the pages makes retrieving information so easy and so quick. Absolutely love Google!
Love Google 5/5
Google is the very best place to get any kind of information .
If u don’t know something all u have to do is ask Google it will give the real answer it will help u with any thing u don’t know for me Google is absolutely priceless can’t do with out it EF
Why remove good features ? 3/5
They removed the swipe done news feature making it really annoying to scroll down all the way to check for newer stuff.
Nice aap 5/5

Freezes my iPhone 8 1/5
This version freezes my iPhone 8 running 11.2.5 to the point that I have to soft restart my phone. , , . I was having freezing issues on the google voice app as well. I DO run 2-factor auth. Maybe that’s the issue?
Google “Rule”ggles” 5/5
Use it everyday
Freezes frequently, unwanted news 2/5
1. The app often just freezes up and won't scroll or respond to button presses (this is a fairly new problem).
2. I don't want to see random news articles, but there's no way to stop it. All I can do is tell it to avoid certain topics or sites, but it always comes up with new equally unwanted ones.
3. App & website settings always fail to load. No clue what they are supposed to do but whatever it is, they aren't doing it.
Need ability to BOOKMARK!!! 4/5
TL;DR— can you pleeeease give us the option to bookmark websites IN this Google app?
Given that I’ve had this app for a long loooong time, I obviously appreciate the app. But since the very beginning, I’ve desperately wished there was a way to BOOKMARK pages while IN THE APP. As it is- and always has been- you have to open the webpage in Safari (or in whatever web browser you use) in order to add a bookmark. This puzzles me a bit because you can bookmark pages accessed via
YouTube’s in-app browser. Example: if you’re using the YouTube app, and you click on a url in a video’s description, that website opens in a browser window WITHIN the YouTube app. And if you want to bookmark a page you access via the in-app browser, you have an option to do so. *Since YouTube is owned/operated by Google, why can’t we have the same bookmarking ability in the Google search app? This would be an absolute lifesaver for me!!!*
Pop up ads 1/5
I was browsing the feed in bed. A pop up ad started blaring and woke my spouse. I instantly deleted the app. I’ll stick with Apple news.
