Google Mobile App on Windows Mobile

Google has just released Google App for Windows Mobile, which essentially gives you a quick-search bar on your today screen, and quick-launch icons for Google Maps and the like. If you use Google apps within your own domain, you can do that here, as well.

Check out the video above for more details, and hit up m.google.com/search from your phone to download. 

Update: Um, yeah. Malatesta sends word there's a bit of a UI problem when it comes to his 320x320 screen. (And it's not working too hot with my 6.1 sliding panels, either.) Anyone else seeing any problems?

Does the mail icon just go to the mobile gmail website?

That's where it took me. In other news, Google Mobile App is no longer on my phone. ;)

says:

All of the icons are nothing but links to the mobile sites. I don't need a today plugin hogging up any resources at all just displaying shortcuts to websites and a search box that, guess what, just opens the web browser and also goes to the mobile site.
I got excited earlier today when I heard about the app being released. It only took a few seconds for that to wane after the install had completed.

Installed on a Treo Pro despite the reservations above.

This lets me kill the today screen search plug in and I took this app off the today screen too.

Cleaner today screen + universal keyboard shortcut to google search - sign me up!!

Nice app. I have install it on my S740 et it works fine.
I really like the search filed on today screen with the history of searches.
