[Q] How to make search and favorites buttons useful?
I have a rooted Kindle Fire HD 8.9" running AWD-Launcher. The bottom of the screen still shows icons for search and favorites. Since I can't find any way to remove them, I'd like to at least make them useful.
For the search button, I'd like to make it launch something useful, e.g. Voice Search or maybe Dolphin Browser. The default Kindle search just isn't useful, especially given the way the web search forces you into Silk.
For the favorites button, I'm looking for an easier way to manage the entries than manually running the "Home" launcher and modifying it from there. I could actually live with that approach if it would allow me to add the Kindle reader from the Play store, but Home is set up to specifically not see that app.
Surely someone before me has been annoyed by having those vestigial buttons at the bottom! Any suggestions would be appreciated.
