Only for The Google Now for ICS Project users!

Simple addition for those who use Google Now on Android 4.0 with ARMv6 and want to take advantage of voice recognition. It won't work correctly on older versions of Google Voice Search, and it will not bring Google Now itself to your phone.

You can immediately start the voice recognition (without pressing the button) by holding down Search button for a while. Launcher shortcut is also available.

- Tweaked Manifest and minimal API Level to make this available for older devices with custom 4.0 ROMs

- Renamed and repackaged to meet Google Play Android Developer Program Policy and Google Play Android Developer Distribution Agreement (DDA)
- You need to uninstall the old version first
- Fixed the bug when sometimes the first search did not work
- It is now possible to turn the voice talkback off
- The donate model was complete disaster, so buy it or let it go :)

- App now integrates with the microphone icon on Google Now search widget

- App now speaks back to you
- Fixed crash

On Google Play

APK Mirror is no longer available.

agree with ganeshp. have to press enter again after the words are inputted into the search box.

I love the idea of this app - great job! Would it be possible to add voice calling capability?

can you make another option instead of search button since sgs2 has no search button? like long press home or menu button? thanks!

edit: my rom (slimrom) doesn't have long press menu for search

Works fine. I was wondering how I can make this pop up when I hit my search button on my search bar. Right now the search that comes up doesn't use Google now
