What's "Google Now"?

(See, this is why I don't like too-generic names. It confuses things and you can't find things.)
I keep hearing about "Google Now", but I can't find an app like that, neither in iOS app store nor in Google Play app store. What's going on?

Google Now is incorporated into the Google Search app on iOS, and built in to the search on Android (long press the menu key from the home screen).

Thank you.

Aha, I see, the "hide it by sneaky interface" method. Very wily.

it seems to be basically Siri from Google, is that right?

You could always Google it ;)

What a suggestion!
I guess it was too meta for me.

Still it demonstrates what I mean about too-generic names, and confusion. A "Google Now" search leads to an app called "Google Search". Grrrrreat.
