21 iOS Apps by Google – For iPhone and iPad

Apart from having launched a complete mobile operating system “Android” (which has created buzz from the day it was launched), Google also has a series of mobile services and apps. To name a few of these (which we will discuss later in details), are Search, Mail, Drive, Voice and Video Calling, Maps, Google Earth and lot more.

Offcourse all of these apps and many more are available on its native mobile OS Android, however some of these are also available for iOS (which is another major competitor to Android). One would argue that Google being a competition to Apple should have not launched apps for it, which will in turn compel all the Google services lovers (and may not be Android lovers) to switch to Android mobiles.

Apple already does make use of such techniques by keeping its native apps like Facetime exclusive to iPhone/iPad. Seems Google does not believe in such marketing gimmicks and want to keep the services available for a large audience. In this article we will look at all the Google Application’s available for iOS platform. We checked and as of now (Sep 2013), about 21 Google Apps are available for iPhone and iPad (some apps are exclusive to iPhone). Some of the these apps are like must have and life would have been different without these. Lets just straight head to list of Google iOS Apps!
