nice

great idea, but here is what I think
- UI should be shrinked (text size of some items in the fragment adapter)
- The ad banner is exactly over the input text field in my device :crying:
- you should also add some specific sections, like music and photo

Short feedback/requests from my side:

1. The quick search works flawlessly. Good job :good:
2. Dividing the search results into three categories is nice, but maybe another categorie ("All") would be useful.
3. A search widget (similar to the Google search bar) would be awesome, so one can easily search for files right from the homescreen without entering the app. Entering the app is quite circumstantial for a quick search. The launcher "EverythingMe" has implemented this in an awesome way (popup with search results, with which you can interact with, for example open the app/contact/file). Would something like this be possible?

Thanks, could you please address the texts? the tabs' text or the list's?
The ad banner will be fixed in the next update.
the new sections are some nice ideas and I will try to add them.

Thanks, the 'ALL' section seems nice and maybe if the app gains more users I start a poll for it.
Also about the search widget, I don't think anybody (at least at this moment) is going to replace the 'Google Search' widget with 'Fast Search' widget :) and I think a constant notification in the notification bar may be more useful. Anyway I try to add them both in the next updates.
Also I haven't tried the 'Everything.Me' but could predict what you mean from popup window. And yes it's possible and I'll try to add it.

Thank you for your notes guys.

I would immediately replace the Google search widget with yours :)

For the popup in EverythingMe: When you start typing something in the search bar, related apps, contacts and more are shown below as can be seen in the attached picture below. But for EverythingMe, the launcher simply hides the current page with its objects and shows the search results instead. This seems quite cool for a launcher, but for a widget it would be nice if there is some kind of popup right below the search widget which shows the search results (maybe some kind of white material card background, for example).

Thank you all for your comments.
The new version (1.1) has been published now with some changes (You can view them in the second post of this topic).
I think those crashes reported and some non-reported ones are fixed now.
Also added persistent notification that was clearly needed for this type of app.
So in the next version probably I will add the search widget and some other improvements that (maybe) would get suggested :D

The app is now updated to version 1.2.1 with the support of a 'Google Search' like widget.
You can download it from the attachments of first post in this thread.
The full change list is on the second post of the first page in this thread.
Also I removed the older versions because i saw some people still downloaded previous versions while the newer versions were there!

@provolinoo
I'm living in IRAN and Google has currently banned my country in the developer section. So I can't publish the application on the Google Play Store. Sorry that I can't help you :(

Still keen to your ideas (and waiting for them) to make the app better that what it's now!

Suggestion !!!!

Idea is great and is similar to SAMSUNG S-FINDER, if you can implement such in your app....than it can be very very handy.....s-finder connects all apps having search options....it lets you search everything on your phone
