Google’s native search app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad today received a pretty significant update on the App Store, bringing the app to version 15.0.

People who use an external keyboard with their iPad can now use time-saving shortcuts within the app to search faster and navigate the app more easily.

Other improvements in this release of the Google app include busiest hours in search results and dynamic font sizing enhancements.

The Google app is available free on the App Store.

To see the list of supported keyboard shortcuts on Google 15.0 for iOS, simply press the Command (⌘) key on your external keyboard.

As for the embedded business hours, the refreshed software now injects information on the busiest hours for places and local businesses directly into your search results page. As a result, you won’t have to tap and expand the local search result anymore.

And for the aforementioned Accessibility improvement, the text within the app will now dynamically resize and shrink, depending on your accessibility font size setting in Settings → General → Accessibility → Larger Text.

Download Google for iOS for free on the App Store.
