    Default App Search on Phone

    Hi all,

    Was having trouble seaarching for this so here we go. I had the one x and in the Google search app, if I would type "Pandora" or a contact name, it would come up as a selection to open app or contact, etc. On my AT&T S3, it only gives me the option to search the web for my search term , any ideas on how to search within phone for apps, contacts, files?

    They had to remove it from Android because stupid Apple sued Google saying they had a patent license for universal phone searching and now android doesn't haven't.... Apple is so stupid and pressed over their stuff, that should be a basic feature on any phone

    Anyways you can find universal search apps and widgets in the Google Play store
