Google recently updated its Gesture Search application for the Android platform. Before the update, users needed to open the application by clicking on an icon. The update takes advantage of the accelerometer, and will now open when the Android handset is flicked back and forth in a gesture similar to that of Star Trek's Captain Kirk when he opened his communicator. Gesture Search let's users draw letters directly on the touch screen to start searches rather than type on the device's keyboard. The updated version of Gesture Search (version 1.2) is a free download from the Android Market.
