Google has rolled out updates for two of its iOS apps today: [itunes link=”″ title=”google search” text=”Google Search”] and [itunes link=”″ title=”google shopper” text=”Google Shopper”].

The Google Search app snow includes larger fonts, tappable search results, and an option to disable voice search via gestures. But the biggest change is that Google says the app should be up to 20% more responsive. Apparently the company had received complaints that the last update made the app much slower than previous versions of the official Google app for iOS.

Google Shopper 1.2 for iOS, meanwhile, has been updated to look more like the latest version for Android. It includes the new blue color scheme, filters for search results, featured lists for browsing, and support for scanning QR codes and print advertisements. There’s also a new history view.

Both Google Search and Google Shopper are available as free download from the App Store.
