I hear that the google search widget is blocked on the fascinate in the market place. Can't you just download it from the marketplace on another phone and copy it to the MicroSD and install it on the fascinate?
I can't find a way to search the Google Calendar on the Droid. Do you know how to do this? The calendar is not to useful when I know I have an appointment with doctor smith sometime in th future but can't search the calendar for doctor smith.
Seems to be getting more frequent. At first it was just freezing and would sometimes return to a usable state while I was listening to music. In the past couple of days it has begun freezing completely when using gtalk or other messaging applications when I would go to enter text. Voice to Text hangs and then force close, but everything else freezes up. I hold down the power button and feel the vibration when the screen to choose what option comes up, but nothing on the screen changes. A minute later, it reboots. I haven't had to do a battery pull yet.
Droid is rooted and I have removed maybe 3 apps... I can't pinpoint an installation of something that maybe caused this to start. Anyone with similar issues? Any fix? Should I just try and swap it out? I have the newest update...
Recently when I use the stock/default music player, when I try to pause or stop it, it keeps playing. If I press the hard home key, it will go to the home screen but the music will keep playing even if I press pause. If I am still in the music player app and press the back button, it goes to a black screen and keeps playing. Today I tried to shut down my phone to get it to stop and it kept playing for a couple minutes and took much longer than usual for the phone to shut down.
Do I just have to use a different music player? Is the default one really buggy or something? Not sure if it has anything to do with it but I only noticed it after I updated to 2.2.
Lots of people underestimated Apple and thought Android phones were ahead of the game. Judging by this video, it seems like a tie if not Apple has the race still won. I mean, the fluidness of iPhone is just amazing, which honestly makes it look more intriguing.
Difference is between this and just hitting search on the soft keys. Also long press search on soft keys for voice search. theres really no reason for it am i right? maybe except for looks and to fill the screen..
Does anyody have an .apk file of the flan Google search bar widget? The one on my Milestone 2.1 is the old one without the the voice search button(I installed voice search on my phone recently since that too wasn't included). And is it possible to use the search bar from Froyo and install it on my phone?
I'm curious why anyone would use the Google Search box (and take up that home screen space) when all you have to do is press the magnifying glass for the same feature (and on any home screen, without having to scroll back to the widget). A long-press opens voice search, so I see no benefit in even using the widget at all.
For some reason google search widget is being obnoxious and i cant remove it from my home. it wont even respond to long presses. i tried deletion and that made my phone unable to reboot.
so I just re-flashed my CM11 ROM again. It just bothers me because its always sending out packet data and utilizing my cpu even in background...i thought it would be easy. my galaxy express sgh-i437 only has a dual core 1.5ghz.
That's the widget below on the screen, but every time I press it just goes to the Google search page or if I hold it it just opens up Nova Launcher actions. Is there a way to do it from the homescreen using voice?
I have a samsung moment and I can't for the life of me figure out how to delete my search history in the google widget. I've tried deleting the cache and cookies and form data, but it doesn't clear it.
I do a Google image search, and when I go to tap on an image. I get nothing. On my D1 it would show the image, and give options to view it full size, or go to the website, but on the DX, I get nothing.
I'm trying to integrate google search widget, but met a problem when retrieving keywords from google search widget. It only has problem in the following scenario:
1. Launch my application, and click back. 2. Enter keyword in google search widget, i..e 'a', and launch it. Everything works fine. 3. Press Home. 4. Enter keyword in google search widget, i..e 'b', and launch it. But my application still got 'a' from getIntent() method.
The problem seems to be caused by activity life cycle. For step.4, only onRestart -> onStart -> onResume -> ... is called so that I can't get the launching intent from google search widget. The bug goes away if I finish my application in onStop method. (But it will cause problem for landscape<-> portraint switch since onStop is also invoked when switching screen). Is there any way to get the query string from google search widget for this scenario? Or did I miss any setting in AndroidManifest.xml?
I don't know why, but when I type something into the Google search widget, it will open up a browser, I think Google Now, and then when I click on a link, it will open the link in Chrome, but in Incognito mode! I don't know how to stop it from doing this, and just open links in regular Chrome.
This is the first time I have seen this. Look at the second search result. Google apparently cached specs which were posted on the Verizon Droid site at some point. It says that the Droid X will have a 1GHz processor: verizon droid x - Google Search
I have 2.2 OTA on my DX and I have the Google Search widget on my home screen. If I do a voice search through that widget, the results come up in the stock browser. If I do a text search, the results come up in my default browser (Dolphin HD). How do I get voice results to open my default browser instead of the stock browser?
