New Google Clock mobile app hits the Play Store

The new version of the application provides Android device users with an alternative to the default on their devices.

Google has now launched a brand new mobile app for the Play store that will offer users of Android devices another option other than the default clock application that comes with devices based on that operating system.

There are several mobile applications that have been developed by Google that users can now download.

This new Google Clock Application is considered to be a stock mobile app that users can obtain for free. It provides a broader spectrum of services such as location, to pinpoint one or several spots that the user wants to have displayed on his or her device home screen. Also notable about this particular version of the mobile application is that a new update is put out with each official rollout of the Android operating system.

The mobile app doesn’t demand too much space and combines features often contained in several common apps.

This mobile application requires a device to run on at least Android 4.4 KitKat and needs about 6.6 MB of disk space to operate. It not only offers the current time to the user, but it also provides a number of additional features such as weather attributes and animations such as sunrise, sunset, sunshine, and rain.

The app has been designed to match the color schemes and themes of the device upon which it is running and is a stock app for users of Nexus devices. While there has been some criticism of the Google Clock application because it doesn’t have different face changes available and the color changing opportunity isn’t there, it has still managed to bring in some rather healthy ratings of nearly 4 (3.8) out of 5 stars, so far, from nearly 9,000 ratings.

Other frustrations that have been mentioned about this mobile app is that while it is helpful to be able to have several cities displayed on the home screen, there doesn’t appear to be any way to sort them. The user needs to settle for the way that they are automatically displayed. While this wouldn’t be problematic with two or three cities, more than that could cause a bit of a challenge to users.

Google has been working to establish a dominant presence in the world of mobile commerce for some time. The company’s Google Wallet has made mobile payments more available to a wide range of consumers, but many people are still demanding comprehensive mobile commerce services that make mobile payments more convenient. In order to accommodate the needs of consumers, Google has updated its Google Shopper application, introducing new features that may be well received by those that prefer to shop online.

App includes updates search features

Google Shopper 3.2 is the latest version of the application. At its core, the application allows users to find products and compare prices for products offered by several retailers. In previous versions, users could find a wide range of products through the application’s search engine, but sorting through the results of this search would often be problematic. One of the new features of the Google Shopper application allows users to sort the results of their search so as to find the products they are most interested in more easily.

Application designed to improve in-store experience

The application is equipped with a variety of features that are designed to improve the in-store shopping experience. The application can scan barcodes and is equipped with voice recognition software that makes it easier for consumers to find the products they are interested in. Searching for product reviews has also been improved in the latest version of Google Shopper and users can find video reviews via YouTube through the application. Users can access GPS technology in order to find the best deals on products offered at local stores as well.

Google continues to show interest in mobile commerce

Google is investing heavily in mobile commerce and part of this involved encouraging consumers to make use of applications like Google Shopper. Mobile commerce is more than simply purchasing products using a mobile device; it also involves mobile shopping. Google expects that its improved Shopper application may help consumers become more acclimated to mobile commerce and the convenience it offers.
