Google Gesture Search available for Android 2.0 or higher
You're on the go and you want to look up a contact or open an app, but can't sort through a hundred names, what do you do?  Well, if you have an Android phone running 2.0 or higher, and you speak English, you can use Google Gesture Search. Gesture Search lets you look for something by scribbling a letter on the touchscreen of your device. Look for a contact, a bookmark, an app or even a music track. It allows you to get through a list quickly without typing. You can download the app by visiting the source link.

Just downloaded it and it works flawlessly. The one thing I didn't like about the droid was looking for contacts but this makes it so much easier. You can just search "gesture search" in the market to find it. The only thing they should change is to be able to dial with it by writing the numbers.

Be careful Android... Apple might try to sue you for using gestures!

While the gesture search is cool it's a pretty pointless app. If you just tap the search button while inside your contacts you can search your contacts by typing the name out

You don't even have to go into contacts you can just hit the search key on the phone and enter the name but I find gesture is actually quicker.
