Google Android 1.6 ‘Donut’ SDK, added a new system-wide search framework called “Quick Search Box,” which makes it possible for users to quickly and easily find what they’re looking for, both on their devices and on the web. QSB suggests content on your device as you type, like apps, contacts, browser history, and music. It also offers results from the web search suggestions, local business listings, and other info from Google, such as stock quotes, weather, and flight status. All of this is available right from the home screen, by tapping on Quick Search Box (QSB). Developers can leverage the QSB framework to provide quicker and easier access to the content inside their apps.
