Many BlackBerry users had a little iPhone envy when Google first released its mobile app with voice search for the iPhone. We all knew ‘Berry’s day would come however, and this morning Google announced the Google Mobile App for BlackBerry with voice search. Gone are the days when we had to spend that extra two seconds to type in our search — unless of course the voice search gets buggy as the iPhone version sometimes does. You can also use Google Maps, Gmail and all things Google (well, almost) in the app which makes searches and location-specific queries a breeze. Speak clearly and normally when using the voice search and results are quite accurate; there is even a British English feature as well if you have a heavy accent. So get to downloading if you have BlackBerry OS 4.1 or higher, but note that voice search only works for 4.2 and above.

Thanks, Nan!
