Google just pushed out a new version of its iPhone app with support for… pushing. More precisely, Google Mobile 0.6 for iOS supports push notifications for Gmail and Google Calendar.

That means you can receive pop-up alerts when new email messages arrive or when calendar appointments are coming up. You can also configure the new version of Google’s Mobile app to work with multiple Google accounts — so if you have a few email addresses or calendars and you’d like to receive notifications from one but not the other, you can do that.

Google Mobile for iOS also has a revised search area. Now you can see search results before you’re even finished typing. Results will start to show up as you type, and some types of information will appear above the search results if you’re looking for weather, stock quotes, flight info, or some other types of data.

Google Mobile is available as a free download from the App Store.
