    Is there any app which allows you to change the built in search button on the phone? I want to have it open an app when I press it instead of the default search. I'm talking about the magnifying glass on the bottom right part.

    Thanks! I tried looking around but can't find anything

    Well I don't know about changing what it does on a tap but I know you can set shortcuts on long press. There's an app called HomeSmack that lets you easily configure it

    Only other thing I can think of is the native quick launch feature. Menu>Settings>Applications>Quick launch. You can set any application to open when you hold the search key and press an assigned letter on the slide out kb.
