Google announced a new feature on its official Mobile Blog this week: Now its mobile search results will encompass online application stores, including iTunes and the Android Marketplace, according to The Register.  

As industry observer Sam Oliver describes it, "applications show up at the top of search results on Google's mobile site. Selecting an application launches the App Store and takes users to that software's specific listing. The creator of the software, as well as user reviews, are listed alongside the link." 

Software engineers Milena Nikolic and Paul Hadfield told Oliver that the idea is to "help users quickly download an application as they search for mobile app information."
