    Google search widget

    Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone knew how to have the google search widget be able to search my phone as well. I have the Eris and i see on the google sync demo they have the nexus and it does it there. so if in the search box you type bar it will display any application you have that has the word "bar" in it as well as contacts and then the search feature.

    ive tried everything to make that hazppen but am at a loss now. is it only on the Nexus?

    Did you try going to Menu>Search>Searchable Items? Make sure the things you want to be able to search are enabled there.

    Also, not sure if the Eris has one, but I use the Magnifying glass on the Moto Droid to search instead.

    If that still doesn't work, try the app "Power Search" It does a better job of searching phone content!

    Slightly confused...Not sure where you're at.

    From your home screen:
    Press menu
    Press search
    Press searchable items

    Mine has:
    Contacts
    Browser
    Apps
    Music
    YouTube
    Google Sky Map [Which I downloaded]
    AK Notepad [Also downloaded]

    Are you trying to search the phone itself, or the SD card? [What exactly are you trying to find with your search, a contact, a note, an app?]

    As far as I know, there's no way to do that unless you root your phone...

    what i would like to be able to do is to have the ability to search my phone for contacts, apps, or web from the home screen just like in the demo here:
    Nexus One Phone - Web meets phone.

    if you click on the search it will show you a demo. if you type "bar" is shows the app barcode scanner, or the contact Barry. i want that feature available to me'

    Found my issue
    "while launching the praised Motorola DROID, [COLOR=#67AA00 ! important][COLOR=#67AA00 ! important]Verizon[/COLOR][/COLOR] also launched the HTC [COLOR=#67AA00 ! important][COLOR=#67AA00 ! important]Droid[/COLOR][/COLOR] Eris (HTC Hero) with HTC Sense user interface adding an awesome customization to the Android OS. The only drawback I noticed was that this phone debuted with Android version 1.5 while DROID debuted with 2.0 and all other network carriers are running 1.6. This means DROID Eris is lacking Quick Search Box, [COLOR=#67AA00 ! important][COLOR=#67AA00 ! important]VPN[/COLOR][/COLOR], new version of Android Market, among other features. However itís noted that an over the air update will hit this phone soon!"
