Custom ICS Search Widget – personalize your Google Search widget
May 14, 2012 9:46 AM –
Custom ICS Search Widget is Google search widget in the style of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), however, works for earlier version; plus it offers a few small customization features.
Tested on: Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
Pros & Cons:
- The look and feel of the ICS Google search widget, no matter which version of Android you’re running.
- It’s really just a search widget, with nothing else new about it.
The Custom ICS Search Widget is a pretty basic app. It is the search widget you get with an ICS installation – and that’s all it is. You get the look and feel of the ICS widget, and you can use it to start a search right from your home screen, but that’s all it does. If you’re looking for additional features or something more than just a search widget, then this isn’t going to be it. You have a few options to adjust the look and feel when you set it up, with the default being the completely white and clear look from ICS. But that’s it.

To be honest, I don’t think the app itself is very useful. It doesn’t bring anything new except the way it looks to your device, so if you like a search widget and use one, then all this changes is the way it looks.
Ease of Use:
The widget is very easy to use. There are three settings you can adjust to change the way it looks, but the functionality is exactly the same.
This depends on how often you use a search widget. It could be something you access frequently, or something you just need every now and then.
The interface, once you get through setup, is just the standard search box, using the ICS colors and design sensibility.
