Google Now adds home screen widget, improved movie cards, real estate listings

Google's search app for Android has been updated, adding a widget for Google Now which can be added to your home screen or lock screen. From now on you won't have to open Google Now to see such things as weather, boarding passes and appointments.

Movie cards have been updated; adding ratings from Rotten Tomatoes, and if you find one you just have to watch you can purchase tickets from Fandango and Google Now will remind you when to leave and pull up the ticket once you get there.

Looking for a new home? A new source has also been added to Google Now which provides nearby real estate listings from Zillio. It can provide detailed information such as price, size, rooms and much more.

Google's updated Search app requires Android 4.1 and you can pick it up on the Google Play Store.
