Google refreshes design of mobile web app search results

Google Search

The Google Play app is an attractive way to search for applications, but the Play Store’s mobile web search counterpart has never quite looked as good. That is, until now.

Google is rolling out an updated mobile web app search that divides the results into a colorful grid. The grid is broken up into multi-colored boxes that include an app’s icon, its name, its rating, and its price. And, as you’d expect, tapping the box will kick you to the app’s page in Google Play for easy installation. You can also tap the expand button at the bottom of the screen to expand the list of apps.

The new results are nice because they highlight the app icon by placing it in its own box, and they’re also easy to read because the boxes are different colors. You can see the new-look results for yourself by searching “____ apps” in Google on your Android phone or tablet.
