Yahoo's Aviate Launcher updated with new Search functionality
Yahoo has just pushed out a new update to their Aviate Launcher that adds a pretty convenient feature to the app. The feature is called Search on Aviate, and it lets you search for apps, contacts and web search results directly from your home screen. Prior to the update, searching for web results would force you to open a browser or head to the Yahoo app to get some answers. Now the information can be accessed right on your home screen via a search box, similar to the Google Search bar that comes stock on Android devices. To get the most recent update, you must be running Android 4.0 or higher for the Search box to appear on your home screen.
Search on Aviate is now available in over 70 markets where Yahoo Search is available. Additionally, the Aviate team has thrown in some bug fixes with the update, so the app should run a bit smoother than before. We’re sure Aviate users around the world will welcome these changes. If you have yet to grab the update, head to the Google Play Store link below.
