How to use Google Now on iOS and iPad
Get Google Now on iOSOn Android, Google Now is more or less a standalone app, but on iOS, Google had to include the service in its Google Search app. Download the latest version of Google Search fr and then launch the app. After installing version 3.0 of Google Search, the first time you open the app you'll be greeted with a short walkthrough of Google Now. You'll need to sign in to your Google account and then agree to let Google use your location and other information for results in Google Now.
What can you do with Google Now?Just like on Android, Google Now on iOS is built to give you information before you even ask for it. Whether it's the current temperature outside, what the commute looks like to/from work, your favorite sports scores, or the current price of a particular stock, Google Now tracks all of this for you without you having to constantly tell it what to do. That information is then displayed in the form of cards. To view the cards, you'll need to swipe up from the bottom of the Google Search app, where you can see the top of the cards waiting for you.
Set up Google NowGoogle Now can be a tad on the creepy side when it comes to knowing information about you, but it doesn't know everything. As such, you're going to have to set up various categories and topics in order to help Google Now.
There are a few limitationsIf you're a Google Apps user, you'll be disappointed to know that Google Now isn't compatible with Apps accounts. Right now, the Gmail scanning service, along with the calendar-scanning feature on iOS, will only work with a Gmail account. This is something Android users have been asking for since the launch of Gmail scanning, and hopefully it's something Google adds to Google Now soon.
