    App Search??

    Whenever I open my app drawer( the icon at the right hand bottom corner that says "apps") and try to search for an app via the search button (the magnifying glass on the bottom right hand corner) I get a notification stating "The application Homescreen has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again." And I'm forced to force close it. Anyone else have this problem????

    Are you rooted? Have you frozen any apps? Using the stock launcher? Tried a hard reset?

    Yup, mine does it too - and then opens up the last app I had been using!

    Just skip the open apps part and use the search button. On mine that allows me to find apps so I'm guessing it will for you too. If not, with the search window open, go to Menu>Search settings and select Searchable Items and make sure Apps is checked. Touch and hold the search button to search by voice.

    I am not rooted and it's always been like this. And Sally, I will try this and see what happens.

    Still does the same but I'll search for apps via the search bar. Thanks.

    That is weird I guess I never noticed that problem since I use GoLauncher EX, and using that the search works from within the APP Drawer.

    Folks, this is a known bug in Android and I am hoping they will fix it soon. There is a workaround for this, but it is not perfect. If you go to settings, applications, manage, and uninstall updates to Google search, the issue goes away. From then on, you will be prompted repeatedly to update the Google search app through the Play Store, but you can just ignore it.

    Good luck!
