Google finally released their gesture search application that we first saw demonstrated during last year’s Google I/O by Romain Guy. It was billed as a tech demo, but now everyone (with Android 2.x) can search their phone using gesture based controls. I believe the gesture APIs were added in Android 1.6, so I’m not sure why Android 2.0 is required.
More details to follow, but I wanted to let everyone know the app was out so they could check it out.
Do you find it hard to find a contact or locate an application from a list of hundreds of items on an Android phone? Or do you find it stressful to search for an item by typing in its title while on the go?
Gesture Search from Google Labs lets you search your Android-powered device by drawing alphabet gestures on the touch screen. It allows you to quickly find a contact, a bookmark, an application, or a music track from hundreds or thousands of items, all in one place. It is fast and fun to use.
Gesture Search currently supports English and requires Android 2.0 or above.
