  1. Search Results should not show web results

    When I'm using the search option it is mostly for apps, but the search results first show results from web then the Apps section. There should be an option to allow for search results to show ONLY apps

  2. Search widget, valid domain or url should open the address and not do a search on Bing

    In case the search term is a valid domain name or is a URL, then the address should open in the browser. Currently search is performed.

  3. Using search bar takes directly to the website if the search term is ended with .in/.com/.net etc and not the search engine.

    Pretty self explainatory title. Also saves clicks, data and makes overall sense since the user is literally trying to enter the website not search it online.

  5. Integrate sesame search to allow searching within apps

    Sesame search allows you to use one search bar, and select an app you want to search within. Instead of having to search maps in the launcher, then open maps, then search an address, sesame search allows me to search an address directly in maps

  8. brilliant feature but it would be really handy to be able to search the whole phone from the search bar rather than an Internet search

    as like all phones it would be great to be able to search the phone from the search bar rather than the Internet and for this reason in my line of work it is a turn off and time consuming having to individually search through messages and contacts

  13. search

    Provide an option for search bar to place it in the bottom of the app drawer. By default the search bar in the app drawer is positioned to top, which in case of scrolling in the vertical app drawer, it doesn't make a good experience because I have to go to the top of app drawer for searching apps.
    By placing it in bottom, it will be more convenient to search while scrolling.

  17. the search bar should not search the web, instead have access to storage for pics, videos, movies pdfs and the likes, more of global search

    Searching the web makes it look slow, instead you can index the whole phone instead of just the apps and contacts

  18. Improve performance of search bar animation - low FPS

    Most of the other launchers have smooth animation of search bar, but this one feels like it's 15 fps.
