    Google today announced that it has brought its "Search Options" results filtering feature to certain mobile platforms, including the iPhone OS, for U.S. users. The feature allows users to filter their search results by timeframe and by source, such as the entire Web or just Internet forums or reviews.
    The feature was introduced to standard search results in May, but has now been extended to mobile-formatted results on certain platforms to provide enhanced search capabilities.

    I thought this feature was always available. Guess I don't have too much use for it until I think about it. Strange that it just appeared without an update.

    An iPhone update wasn't needed. It was a website change.

    That will make things a bit easier. Okay, I've actually never need that feature, but it is good to have I guess.

    I still miss being able to customize the other Google apps on the top of the Google search page for iPhone.
