Nothing has changed between Google and Apple as far as their collaboration on the iPhone moving forward to the iPad. Apple can leverage free Google services for built-in apps and Google will have exposed on another platform.
In a blog post, Google mentions its developers have experimenting several services on the larger screen size of the iPad by adding more functionalities.
The first service Google shows is the Gmail Web-based app, should users are not happy with the built-in app and using Gmail IMAP protocol . To take advantage of the iPad’s large display, they’ve created a two-pane view with your list of conversations on the left and messages to the right.
Users can just go to gmail.com in Safari browser for a test drive.
Additionally, from the blog post, Google wants you to know the iPad ships with a number of Google services pre-installed. As with Mac computers and the iPhone, you’ll find Google Search in the top right corner of Safari. The YouTube app for iPad is built-in, so you can watch HD videos and read and write comments. The new Maps app on iPad takes advantage of high-resolution satellite and Street View imagery, includes a new terrain view, and lets you search for local businesses and get directions. Just like on the iPhone, you can also go to the App Store to download Google Mobile App with search by voice.
