Android gets Gesture Search; right now only for Nexus One, Droid in US
Google has announced that Android users will now be able to perform search on their Android devices using gestures. This is certainly a cool feature. Users will now be able to search for contacts, bookmarks, apps and music on the phones using Google’s new Gesture Search app.
Currently only available for US Android users with Android 2.0 or above running devices, the application can be downloaded from Android Market. This exclusive availability is surely a dampener for other users, but it will be available soon for them too, promised Google.
Gesture Search allows you to simply draw the first few letters of the word you are looking for. You can erase the gesture query by crossing it horizontally: left to right erases the entire query and right to left removes the last letter or space in the query.
