Mostly when browsing through our android phone looking for a specific file we are unable to find it and then fall back on the Google search that is available on our android device to find the specific item in our phone or to find that item on the web. Doing the search is easy just you have to type in the Google search and it will search through your files and let you know whether that particular item is available or not.
Well now you can rely on other search apps that will let you find out your files. Some of these apps provide more functionality then the pre-installed Google search app. Some of these apps are:
1. Gesture Search:
This new app has been released from Google labs and will allow you to search through your phone by drawing letters on the screen in the blink of an eye. You no longer have to open the search bar and type for what you’re looking for. Just draw the letter on the screen and the app will look for the corresponding name by browsing through your contacts, audio tracks, apps and bookmarks. If the gestures are not clear then it will provide you with closest matched result. This app is available for free on android market.
2. Aurora Universal Search:
