Google Leverages AJAX, Releases New iPhone Application
To use the application, iPhone users simply point their web browser to www.google.com

Google has announced the release of a new iPhone application that integrates its multiple services into a single interface, making it easy for iPhone users to find, use and switch between Google search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader, and more. To accomplish this, Google is taking advantage of browser technologies (like AJAX) that made Gmail and Google Maps possible on the desktop.

To use the application, iPhone users simply point their web browser to http://www.google.com.

In a statement, Google noted:

"In supporting these advances in web technology, the iPhone's Safari browser not only delivers an excellent mobile Internet experience; it enabled our product and engineering teams to create an optimal Google experience on a mobile device."

Google's overall goal is to provide users with access to information, wherever they are.

"This commitment is device-independent," the company emphasizes, "and we are working to develop new mobile technologies that are faster, easier to use, and available on more devices."

As a recent example, Google cites My Location (http://google.com/gmm/mylocation.html), a Google Maps for mobile feature that shows users their location directly on the map with or without GPS.
