Google builds application interface for iPhone users through the web browseriPhone owners can now take advantage of Google applications online through a new, easier to use interface that integrates the different tools into a single interface. The new interface is available for iPhone users through the Safari web browser and will come up automatically when they visit Google’s home page.

From the newly integrated page users can navigate quickly to applications including Search, Gmail, Calendar, Reader, Docs, GOOG-411, SMS, News, Photos, Blogger, and Notebook. According to Google the pages will download to the iPhone faster than before and comparable to using them on a desktop computer. This interface was made specifically for the iPhone but Google says that they will be “optimizing” its applications for use on other popular mobile devices as well in the future.

The applications take advantage of something called AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) which allows data to transfer from a client web page to and from the source server without having to reload the entire page. This allows information to load quicker on the iPhone browser and “behind the scenes”.
