    I highlighted the next line down "Phone 1 contact / 34 messages" as shown below.



    I clicked this highlighted line, and it shows all entries that reference "wife" as shown below. I skipped past my wife contact to save the trouble of masking her phone number, but it is working well for me.

    OK, it works on my Storm 9530 and searches my phone contacts and emails.
    I didn't notice the highlighted line for Phone and Contacts.

    Gordtm,

    I didn't see this as well at first, but after doing several searches, it reached out grabbed my attention.

    While out and about this morning, I did several searches, I like this app, "coffee" showed me listings and phone numbers in my area, did my house address, and up came the map. "gas, bread, etc...etc" now if I could just landscape.

    I have a storm2 and it was not available for me.

    Does the voice search work ? Just wondering.

    I just get no luck with trying to download it?
    Am i missing something?
    When i click on the link on my storm to get it, it takes me to a page listing all manner of google links.
    If I click on search it takes me to the mobile app page and says either put in my phone number (Trinidad is not listed at all) or goto the web page (m.google.com)
    Again that page wont load?

    Strange hey?:crazy:

    Comparable here, it seems as if it is not available for all, either location-wise or device-wise...we have to wait a bit longer, I guess...

    Interesting, kinda lengthy setup, but I'll try it for a few daze and see how it works out.
    Have you ever wondered why things intended to make our lives simpler keep getting more complicated to use?

    Thanks a lot!

    And indeed, takes quite some steps to install and since it - at least to me - does not really offer a smooth Storm feeling (and handling) I think I will wait for a later release

    Nevertheless, thanks for the OTA link, nice find!
