Google Gesture Search

Google Gesture Search


Gesture Search lets you quickly access contacts, applications, settings, music and bookmarks on your Android device by drawing letters or numbers. It continuously refines search results as you add each gesture, and becomes better as it learns from your search history.

New app widget for quick launch of recent items.
Displayed as a popup dialog on tablets.
Bug fixes and UI improvements.
New in 2.1.2:
Searching multilingual contents by drawing native characters for 40+ languages. Transliteration is supported for all these languages. Pinyin initials are also allowed for Chinese. More bugs fixed (including the crash during indexing and incompatibility with Froyo introduced in the previous version).

User reviews of Google Gesture Search
Wonderful app. Finds anything on your device. Voice searches sometimes miss names with nonstandard spellings; Gesture Search doesn't have that problem. With fuzzy-search capabilities, entering two or three letters is usually enough to find what you are looking for.

Love this app, use it all the time instead of my phonebook. Wish it would erase last search on exit, save extra steps. Would like option to call or text in one step, that would make it perfect! EDIT 11/2/11 - still use it, still the same issues. Seems like a simple fix would make this far more useful

I’ve ditched my phone book. One quick tap on the desktop and a few swipes of my finger on screen and I’ve got the right contact at my fingertips. Custom settings allow you to search for apps, music, bookmarks and more. This must have app saves me so much time. It was developed by Google and not sure why it’s not default on every Android? It works so well, but currently only works with search. I’m hoping they bring have the option of using this instead of a keyboard soon!

A bit extra It would be better is it stayed open on home screen. In the amount of time I find this app and open it I could have already found the app I was originally looking for.

App works just fine, but its not practical at all. You need to make it work in a way that if you were to draw anywhere (main screen of phone, not inside the app) then it would recognize it and show a list of possibilities from the side or something.
