  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. no duplicates in contact search results

    if searching for a contacts name, only three results are shown. in the worst case, all results are just different numbers of the same contact, preventing other matches to be shown.
    I would prefer if contacts would not be listed multiple times.
    also, changing the amount of desired matches per category would be great

  3. Stop search pop ups saying "showing x number of results"

    There's no need to tell me the number of search results that are found up. The pop up is over the keyboard and gets in the way while providing no benefits. I can scroll down the list of results if I need to and knowing there's more or fewer results provides no benefit.

  5. Include option for a button to open search term in app-store

    An option in the settings (probably on by default) that adds a button to the app-search section of apps to the app-store. It would be the Android app store by default, but an option could swap which app-store the search term queries.

  7. make it possible to ONLY search for local files in search bar, e.g. local search/browser or offline search

    to give the user an option for local search. That is, if no local results are found the search returns "no local results, search online?".
    This instead of directly opening a browser, forcing the user to close it to resume local search and so on.

  10. Whenever I search for an app from launcher search which is not installed in my app library instead of opening browser can it open playstore?

    I was using another launcher whose one feature I found very handy in situations. so if I use the search bar from app drawer and query for an app which is not installed it takes me to its playstore page directly instead of opening browser and searching the term. And it makes sense that if I'm using the search bar inside of app drawer I want to search the app and not anything else at that time. Can it be implemented like this? that one extra step gets irritating sometimes

  12. App search in the launcher: display of new apps for direct download from google plax

    When I search for apps, only my own apps are currently displayed.
    an integration of google play could suggest new apps.

  13. Google app for search

    I'd like to use the Google app for search. As default, the browser is opened, here the Google app should also be selectable.

  16. Search Bar Look

    The latest version puts a white outline around the Search Bar. Either make an option to customize the Search Bar color and outline or make it like it was. If you use a dark Theme and the homescreen wall paper is dark, it does not look good the way it is now.

  18. Maybe it would be better if you make the search bar on the app drawer removable. I dont use that feature but I cant remove it.

    It would be better if you make the search bar on the app drawer removable, I would like it more if I see an option on searh setting to remove from app drawer.

  19. Make searching apps fuzzy search

    When searching for apps on my phone, I frequently mistype a letter here or there and it causes things such as facev to not map to Facebook, etc
    Would be great if this supported a somewhat forgiving fuzzy search (even just one letter off after a couple letters are entered)
