|Google Images not working on mobile devices||naruyume||2/12/12 1:32 PM|
Since a while back I've experienced some issues with the image search on the Swedish google server on my iPhone 4s, and it seems i'm not alone, although it does'nt seem to affect everyone. I've also found that it can affect android-phone users aswell.
The problem is that when I make a search for "dog" (for example) on "www.google.se" and press the "images"-tab and then press an image i want to see - I get another image next to it enlarged. Also the navigation (swiping between images) and the navigation buttons don't work.
I've tried :
- changing and resetting every option in my phone and in the google settings
- resetting the phone (both normally and with dfu-mode) and switched iOS's (9A405 and 406)
- using other iphones, for example an iPhone 3gs and 4
and nothing of this works.
What I have found though, is that if I use the address "images.google.com" or "google.dk" or "google.no" it works. It seems to be only the Swedish google version that does'nt work. Unfortunately the default search for my Safari application on the phone is the Swedish google, and it can't be changed.
Is anyone else having this problem on their smartphone?
Here is a link for the discussion on the Apple forums, and another on a Swedish android forum.
Does anyone have a solution or is this a coding error on the Swedish google server?

Same problem for me!
A fix or a response from google would be nice.

I do experience the same problem as you do since aprox a week back. It is truly very annoying. I have noticed that several iPhone owners I have herad of or know personally are affected. A fix of this problem from google is something I do not only apprechiate but do expect in a near future since the iPhones are distributed with google as search engine by default!

I have the same problem. I discussed this with my dealer "Mobilizera" in Borås, Sweden. Together we tried 2 iPhones and 3 different androids including my SGS2. All of us know that it used to work. Today none of them workes as they used to. Whats weird is that everything worked just fine a couple of months ago!
The whole idea of image search is lost when this feature malfunctions.
I would like to report this problem directly to Google instead of using forums.
But is it possible to do that at all? Anybody!

Thanks for writing in about this issue everybody! We've got some eyes on it now, and hopefully we'll be able to find the solution shortly.

it also does not work in AUSTRIA on the iphone4. once one selects an image, the popup only displays the first result. the navigation dims out after a few seconds. i noticed if one clicks "full resolution" it does display the actually chosen image. but the step between selecting and displaying the iphone preview seems to be broken.

Odd that I have the same problem in the UK on my iPhone4, but my wife, sitting next to me, also using an iPhone4 can happily use google images.
I too can use google.dk successfully....

Can you provide more detail on the behavior you're experiencing on your iPhone?

Hi, I have an issue which appears to be as described. Using Latvian google, google.lv is not possible for photos. When I open image tab and see thumbs, clicking on them is not possible. As well as scrolling the page by flipping or clicking.

I have the same issue here in New Zealand with google.co.nz
Touching image search thumbnails does nothing, nor is advancing to the next page of returned results possible.
I'm on an iPhone4, running iOS 5.1.1 in Safari.

Thanks again for bringing this issue to our attention. Our engineers made some speedy work and fixed the issue. If you're still experiencing the issue, please clear your cache and cookies and then retry. If Google Images continues to behave oddly after doing so, please let me know.
Thanks and happy searching,

Using Opera Mini browser the searches work nicely, so it seems a browser-dependent problem (I was using the standard Android browser before)
|Re: Google Images not working on mobile devices||cernagins||5/14/12 11:53 AM|
problem was cured for few days with clearing cache. etc. It is now back, unfortunately.
Iphone 4, iOS 5.1, safari
All sites in google images, including .com .co.uk .lv .ru so on

I'm having a same issue like this. Searching for an image with Google Images won't work. You just see the small thumbnails. Clicking on them don't give a bigger preview. It unresponsive to clicks.. Any other website works fine..

I had the same problem, but noticed that on a WiFi connection everything suddenly works fine! It's a bandwidth setting of the browser.
--Go into the advanced settings of the browser. Check if there is a setting that has anything to do with bandwidth (the name is different in each language & type of browser)
--There is a preload setting there. Set that to "always" instead of "WiFi".
I checked this with the Android Browser as well as Google Chrome. (Chrome needss to be restarted for it to work)

Most recent update to "google search v126.96.36.1995405" still has not fixed this issue on my tablet running 4.1.1. Next update needs to look back at how the original V processed an image search.
