    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.

    I updated it this afternoon. I haven't tried it yet, but the widget looks different.

    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?
