Here is a video I made on my HTC EVO LTE Android 4.0.3 ICS, that shows some commands in action and displays a couple of cards. Also, proves that Google Now does work with voice and has talk back.

Enjoy!

Work around for the Google Calendar

1- You need to setup your Phone as a registered device on Google calendar. Go to www.google.com/calendar

(if everything went right, you will receive another message saying "your device has been verified")
Attachment 1315356

6- Now create a new contact, called Calendar, and make the primary number 48368 (which is GVENT). That's it! You're done!
Attachment 1315357

7- Now you can send a text by voice, for example "Text Calendar Meet Tom at 10am at his house".
Attachment 1315358

8- Make sure you Click "messaging by voice search"
Attachment 1315360

Lastly
The event will be created on your calendar (you will receive a confirmation text that the event was added to the calendar successfully)

Google Search Widget


Fist off I take no credit for the making of this app, u1aryz is the creator and I thank him very much for this app.

This application is to customize your Google search widget to any color you want. I use it to match my themes. I used to use it to link my mic to jonny_g app but I kept it because I liked the customization of it, so maybe you will like it too.

Here are some pictures of widgets I made for fun. The logo, mic and frame can be changed to any color you desire. Have FUN!


You can find this app on the Play store

Man, I really appreciate your work. I like the commands that you have discovered. I love your widget and the help that you gave us, but be careful, because from what I saw, they are able to close THIS thread, because you copied YOUR work! Good luck and keep you on this way!!!

Great information!

One thing that I've been looking for and still haven't found out about Google now.
How do I keep the information Google now learns when i flash a new ROM, because it keeps forgetting how to spell my partners name :-/

I would of thought it keeps the information in the cloud? is this not the case? Otherwise all devices will be reporting randomly different information & wouldn't know when dismissed etc.

I've only just installed JB on my tab and currently downloading now for my phone (ICS) so haven't had a proper play yet.

information you search is backed up through the cloud because you are signed in through you G-mail account, so flashing a new Rom is not a problem.
You want Google to better understand you?
-Go to settings
-Voice
-Check personalized recognition if not checked
-select the New Google search as a default.

that should help better understand you and what your saying and hopefully spell your partners name right.
