Google has an incredible iOS design and development team. I just downloaded the new search app for iPhone and it's about as perfect as any app I've ever used. After a few minutes I'm totally loving it. And I use the Google+ iPhone app for like 30-60 minutes a day. It is an absolutely amazing way to consume content from my carefully built circles on Google+. The large photos with text overlays are brilliant.

When I'm simply consuming information, the iPhone experience with both of these Google apps are as good or better than than the desktop versions.

But when I'm creating content, or organizing it, or linking to it, or interacting with people, I still have to use my desktop, with its full-size keyboard and two large monitors. I get much more done at my desktop than I can on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, because I have maximum screen size, maximum keyboard input speed, 20+ open tabs in Chrome, and most of my Windows applications open as well.

I've never been able to replicate that kind of maximum productivity environment on a laptop, let alone a tablet or smart phone. I wonder if I ever will.
