Yet another Google mobile product has been updated this week. This time, it’s iGoogle getting a function and design facelift.
iGoogle has a new beta version for Android devices that is optimized for speed and better replication of the full-featured website. A great start to that is the added supports for more gadgets (Flash-based gadgets not included) and tabs. The new tab support means users can finally better organize their mobile gadget content in a cleaner fashion.
The new iGoogle also displays article summaries on the homepage, which means you’ll have more than just a title to decide if you want to read an entire article. Almost 40 languages are supported in the new iGoogle.
I’m glad to see this along with other improvements. While I use the desktop version as a way to shorten my morning routine of checking email, news, websites, movie times, and more, I never felt the old iGoogle was a fitting start page.
Visit igoogle.com in the Android browser and press the link that says “Try the new Mobile iGoogle.”
