New Google App for iPhone

Google is planning to release an iPhone application that allows users to search by voice instead of using the keyboard. According to the New York Times, the application may be available as soon as today.You can place the phone to their ear and ask virtually any question, like “Where’s the nearest Starbucks?” or “How tall is Mount Everest?” The sound is converted to a digital file and sent to Google’s servers, which try to determine the words spoken and pass them along to the Google search engine.

The search results, which may be displayed in just seconds on a fast wireless network, will at times include local information, taking advantage of iPhone features that let it determine its location.
