Fresh on the Google Mobile Blog this morning, the team announced that the updated version of the Google Mobile App now allows users to search both email and contacts in addition to the web. Just enter your search terms in the box as usual, and the app will show you contacts as well as emails for results. You can enter a contact name or message content, and easily locate and reply to or forward off emails. The app also lets you call, SMS or email contacts with just a few clicks. Start typing a persons name, and the app will show applicable results. Not a fan of the search features? You have the option to disable them so fear not. If you use the Google Mobile App this is a great alternative to the "bulky" built in message search, but I'm not sure if its enough to entice new users to fire up the app for the first time.
