Google adds a nice little bookmark feature for mobile image search

Incremental improvements in software are great when they solve small problems that you've experienced in the real world. Google has provided one of those little solutions today by announcing that you can now bookmark images when searching for them in mobile browsers, instead of having to screenshot or download them. When logged into a Google Account, you can press a star in Google Image Search to save the image for quick access later. You can also now create "collections" of saved images, which are really just the same folders for bookmarks you may already be used to in web browsers.

The new image bookmarking tool is sort of like the company's take on Pinterest boards for Google+, called Collections. The Collections feature lets users create and follow boards of images and other media, categorized by interest. But sometimes you just want to save an image without joining a social network, you know?
