google search mobile apps

Google is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the search world.  It's about darn time the folks at Mountain View did this one.  Now, when you enter a search at google.com on your Android (or iPhone) device, you get relevant results for mobile apps too.  They will appear at the top of the search results, and have a quick view of some of the application details -- price, rating and developer.  A quick press will forward you right to the application's market page, where the full description can be read and you can decide whether or not to download. 

For now, this is limited to the US, with other countries and support for other platforms in the
works for the future.  Another big thumbs up Google, keep it coming! [Google Mobile blog]

They need to work on this feature more. It doesn't really work unless you are very specific with what you type. If I type what you typed, I get the link but if I don't put in the word "download" then it doesn't show up. I also tried "download flixster" and didn't get a link to the market. Hopefully they can make it so more app choices come up when searching more general search terms or add a link for apps in their new sidebar.

I am curious in the picture above it shows a small "superman" symbol right next to the alarm clock. What is that for? If anyone knows please post answer. Thanks :)

the superman symbol is from an underoos apps so some adults know when to change them by the symbol on there phone. LMAO

doesnt work in Norway, guess its another feature only available for certain locations *puke*

The super man icon is his battery icon. Custom ofc.
