Google Quietly Drops iPhone Optimized iGoogle Page

Barry Schwartz reported Monday morning at the Search Engine Roundtable that Google seemed to have quietly dropped the iPhone version of the iGoogle page. The iPhone iGoogle page use to be at google.com/ig/i, but when iPhone users navigate to google.com/ig/i they are redirected to the standard mobile iGoogle page at google.com/m/ig. Google said the reason they dropped the iPhone version was because they “want to ensure you’ll all see the same version” of the iGoogle mobile page. But Google made no official announcement on this change, I found this by viewing a thread where it seems like hundreds of iPhone users are upset with this change.


The quality and ease of use is poor at best.

Let Google know how you feel.

Life is no brief candle...

Life is no brief candle to me. It is sort of a splendid torch which I
have got hold of for a moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly
as possible before handing it on to future generations.

-- George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) Irish Playwright
