Google has posted an update for the iPad version of its Search App.
The free App has been updated to include a number of additional features from the Google Search platform as well as a few unique features for the iPad.
Among the features offered by the update is Google Instant. The search tool allows users to see possible results as they type, the time-saving feature has proven popular since it was first introduced for Google online search in September of last year.
Additionally, the update will bring a new iPad navigation system which will sport result preview panels and allow users to view images on a carousel presentation screen which can be navigated through tap gestures.
Google has posted a video demonstration of the new App along with more information on its Mobile blog.

We're anxious to see what features can to the iPad version of recently-ported applications such as Minecraft.
