Microsoft provides Bing as the default search engine for Windows Phone 7 just like Android has Google. But to make googling more convenient, Google has released a free Search App for Windows Phone 7 that lets you search the web, images, local and more –  in a nutshell, the complete search package.

The first release of this app isn’t too heavy on features. It provides search as suggestions, shows search history and uses your location to provide relevant search results ( this, of course, is optional ).google-windows-phone

Along with all the search goodness, you can also pin it as a tile to the Windows Phone 7 home screen as shown in the first image. Looks so much better than iPhone icons, doesn’t it? Wish all tiles were this colorful on WP7.
