Replace the Google Now shortcut with any app you like with Slide. If you don't have a soft home button with a shortcut to Google Now, This app is probably not going to be useful to you.

Under development. This is far from complete. I've only tested on my Nexus 4.

Source can be found here: https://github.com/ggmathur/android-slide

Known issues:
* Leaves "ghost" app behind
* No visual acknowledgement that an app was selected
* Application list is slow to load
* Noticeable "jump" when launching shortcut.
* Doesn't seem to work on the Nexus 7 if you have multiple accounts.

Things I want to add:
* A better icon
* Select from a list of apps
* Trigger an action
* Explore other forms of shortcuts/gestuers

Recently changed in this version

Fixed issue where app would force close if you uninstalled the selected shortcut.

    The Nexus S has a hardware button for search so "Slide" is not a good name. But it works!
