    Google Search has been updated and is now available for download for all devices on 2.2 or later. Some of the enhancements you will see:
    • Faster, smoother performance, with an updated and simplified user interface.
    • Suggestions for your search grouped by type, with web suggestions at the top.
    • Country-specific suggestions and search results for all countries with Google domains.
    • Long press to remove history items.
    So head on over to the Android Market on your phone of PC and snatch it up.

    Hah! Don't look for it if you have a Galaxy Nexus or ICS I assume, like I did before checking my version number. Nexus is running v. 1.4.0.235179 - I say with egg on my face:blink:

    I think I liked it better when the apps showed up first. That is most of my use for the search button.

    Instead of using this app I set my browser's home page to: http://godscript.com/z.html

    Actually I just saved that page to my phone and then set my home page to file:///docs/z.html

    I don't get it. It doesn't appear in the Market for me and I apparently don't have the latest version. I guess I don't really care what with it working just fine and all, guess it's just that strange obsession with making sure all my apps are up to date, even if I don't really use them.

    Where is that version at? I haven't found it in the Market, even after a search. Is it from a ROM? I am not rooted, yet.

    Your previous avatar showed me that you are a Coug. Long way from home, eh?

    You running a custom rom? Maybe it's a 4.0.3 thing.

    Nope, not a Vandal - never got that far in my formal education, only community college. Self taught and OJT in radio engineering tech since 1979. I am in Bronco land, now. I used to live in No. Idaho a little more than an hour from Lewiston.

    I would assume that the version of GSearch you are running might be from the ROM you installed. Thank you for posting the GN rooting instructions. I will be using those in the future. Still wearing the new out of the GN right now - in other words, too busy with work and I use it there.
