"Fast search on your device"

Gesture Search allows you to search in the blink of an eye

Are you still tapping three times to find an app? Are you scrolling down and down and down to get to the contact you want to call? These kind of problems are over with Gesture Search.

Gesture Search lets you quickly find a contact, bookmark, app or music track. How does it do that? Once you've installed it, the only thing you have to do is launch the app and draw with your finger the letter that contains the app/contact/bookmark/track you're looking for. It will appear the list of resources that contains that letter. For a more specific search add more letter to your search. That easy. Navigate through your Android faster than ever.

Gesture Search is one of the starred apps developed by Google Inc., the official Android Market provider, and the responsible of other indispensable Android apps as Google Books, Google Earth, Gmail or Blogger.

Developer's original description available here
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.

    It's a nice app but it keeps refreshing too frequently and kills my battery fast

    I'm a bit unsure about this app, because it only just works, it's not that convincing. Some of the reviews give it 5 stars, mainly written by Americans, judging by their language. Surprise surprise the Americans would rave about Google. That's what Americans do, rave about their own stuff, but I'm not convinced about this app, or Google or Android. Update it doesn't give me a chance to refine
