-More UI improvements.
New users can install the app from Play Store. After installation, run the app and start typing to find contents. To customize the app, bring up the Settings menu by taping your device’s menu button.
From the settings menu, you can specify the writing speed, activate the sensitivity of the Double Flip motion gesture, specify what data types you want to include for searching as well as clear the search history and turn on or off gesture data collection.
