Google Now Saving Local Search Across Devices [insidesearch.blogspot.com]
How often are you doing a Google search from your computer to find information about a place before going there? Now, next time you go to Google.com on your Android phone or iPhone, information about that place will be conveniently available under the new “Recent” icon. Calling, getting directions or seeing details about the places you just searched for is now only one tap away.

We provide this new convenience feature for users who have Web History enabled and are logged into Google when doing their search. Start by searching for a place on your PC or other devices, then login to Google.com’s mobile homepage and check the Recent icon. Information about previously searched places will be available under the Recent icon for about a day.



The 'recent' icon looks like the thing to look out for.

The first reason I've heard to actually like Web History!

At least, for now, it only applies if you are logged in to G+. I would be worried if it works when you are not.
