Search Button Override

Search Button Override


After upgrading to Jelly Bean search button changed its functionality to open Google Now instead of doing search in current application. This application prevents Google Now to pop up every time you hit search button by accident by disabling it. After you install this application just hit search button and select Search Button Override from the list of applications to handle action with Always preference. Now every time you hit search button you will see notification in the title bar instead of Google Now. Long press on the search button will work the same - open a voice search. Search action on lock screen will not open Google Now as well, sadly you cannot override search button without modifying behavior of search action on lock screen.

Sweet freedom Thanks for releasing this, it has saved me from a lot of frustration. I still long-press by accident when getting my phone out from a pocket, but it's nowhere near as bad as before.

Simple and effective solution Yes, disables Google search button without uninstalling speech-to-text.
