Does Google work better on iPhones or Androids?

There has been no assurance from either side that they would provide the best experience. So far, everything has been crappy.

I'm very disappointed in Google.

Depends which Google services you're talking about and whether you are talking about apps or the mobile versions of the websites.

I've only ever used the Gmail apps on both iOS and Android and I have to say the Android version of the app is way better. But that is to be expected since Android is made by Google and all.

Especially with Google Now. Though it's quite limited on the Nexus 7, I could see myself using it almost everyday if I used an Android phone.

Many people owning android now agree that GMaps and GMail apps are better on iOS right now.To each his own though.

Obviously the Google OS is going to work the best with Google Services. And the obvious has also been my experience.
