Two weeks ago, Google launched Gesture Search as a public Google Labs Beta and since the release, Google has received quite a bit of feedback. For example it was requested to support Gesture Search for earlier versions of Android, as well as access to it outside the US. Gesture Search lets you quickly find a contact, an installed application, a bookmark or a music track from hundreds or thousands of items, by simply drawing alphabet gestures on the touch screen. Say you want to call your friend Anne. Just open Gesture Search and draw letter "A", and Gesture Search returns a list of items that have words starting with "A".

And while the initial release of Google Gesture Search required Android 2.0 or higher, Google has now released a version which also supports Android 1.6. Additionally, it can be now downloaded in all countries where the Android Market is available, although it continues to only recognize the English alphabet. The new version also includes some improvements to performance and bug fixes.

Cheers ~ Arne
