We launched! Check out the newly redesigned Google app for iOS!
Think of it as an early holiday gift: There’s a rebuilt Google app for iOS, and it’s ready and waiting for you in the App Store! (http://goo.gl/q6og2U) It’ll help you multitask more merrily this holiday season, thanks to easier-to-find recent searches, Maps that show up alongside your search results, and a “g” button that lets you start a new search from anywhere within the app. Oh, and it’s got a sleek new look too!

Hey San Francisco designers, if you were intrigued by our previous post about +Noah Levin's first few months as an Interaction Designer at Google, he'll be speaking about his process more at +General Assembly this Sunday. While tickets are sold out, getting on the waitlist is free and there'll be more, similar events in the future.

Couldn't agree more. Always be making things.

My personal favorite related anecdote related to this:
http://www.lifeclever.com/what-50-pounds-of-clay-can-teach-you-about-design/

"...It seems that while the “quantity” group was busily churning out piles of work”and learning from their mistakes”the “quality” group had sat theorizing about perfection, and in the end had little more to show for their efforts than grandiose theories and a pile of dead clay."
One of my favorite quotes is “Talking about music is like dancing about architecture.” There are a few variations, but I trot this quote out each time someone wants to chat at length about a design problem. I don't want to talk about it, I want to draw about it.

Anyway, the quote has an interesting history.

Check out the updated Google Search app for iOS and let us know what you think!

Among many new features in this update, we now have reminders, notifications, a cleaner home page, full screen maps within google now, sign in without a password if you use other google apps on iOS / have signed in before, swipe down to dismiss an image in the image viewer, a bunch of new now cards, and more!
Timely information can make all the difference when you’re on the go. With the updated Google Search app for iOS, Google will send you important notifications. For example, if your flight is delayed, a notification will appear on your lock screen, letting you know the updated schedule—so you still have time to grab a coffee on your way to the gate. You’ll also receive notifications about heavy traffic conditions to ensure you arrive on time for your appointments, meetings and events. Download the updated Google Search app from the App Store now—open it, sign in and you’re ready to go: http://goo.gl/jyHdMp

"There is no such thing as an attention span. There is only the quality of what you are viewing.  This whole idea of an attention span is, I think, a misnomer. People have an infinite attention span if you are entertaining them." - Jerry Seinfeld

Ran my first half-marathon yesterday! Super happy with the results. Really fun and particularly enjoyed running alongside the beautiful SF landscape.
