CiteSearcher is a Google Scholar frontend for iOS and Android mobile devices. With it, you can easily search Google Scholar for an author's work, his/her Hirsch index (H-index), and G-Index. The index h is “defined as the number of papers with citation number ≥h”, and is often used “as a useful index to characterize the scientific output of a researcher” [J. E. Hirsch 2005]. For the G-Index, given a set of articles ranked in decreasing order of the number of citations that they received, the g-index is the (unique) largest number such that the top g articles received (together) at least g^2 citations.
