    Its cool but having to open the app to have to use it makes it kinda useless. Then need to incorporate this into the OS, that would kick ass

    Am I the only one having problems? Ever since I installed it, my Droid kept locking up and I had to reboot twice. I uninstalled it and everything is fine. I'm running BB v1.2 and Chevy's kernel 1.2ghz. Anyone else have issues?

    It searches everything including apps - just keep narrowing it down.
