"It’s one of the best options we’ve seen for bringing alternative searches to the Android home screen."

"This Swiss knife of search widgets is a must-have for Android users"


NOTE: This app will change the appearance of the 'CSBW' search bar widget; NOT the appearance of your stock launcher's search bar. Add the CSBW widget to your home screen to apply changes.

GUIDE HERE: http://natewren.com/csbw-getting-started/

Custom Search Bar Widget (CSBW) is a fully editable search bar widget with a custom icon drawer. The widget can be changed in multiple ways to match your device's current theme. The drawer includes editable icons that can switch search engines, provide quick links to apps, or apply functions such as copy and paste.

FEATURES
• Fully customize all aspects of the search bar widget and icon drawer.
• Save search bar themes and load them later.
• Keyword search suggestions.
• Set-up search for installed apps instead of Google.
• Switch between search engines or apps such as Play Music, Spotify, Wikipedia, Amazon, etc.
• Add new search engines, or add new apps to search to the included icon drawer.
• Pre-made themes included for quickly applying theme to search bar.

PRO VERSION
• Customizeable Pixel Launcher Search Bar.
• Date option for Pixel Search bar.
• More customization options.
• Option to add icon drawer to home screen widget.
Note: If you see a gap on the side of the pixel widget, press and hold on the widget and select "Remove Padding" (Some launchers don't have this option. Nova Launcher is recommended.)

GOOGLE NOW vs GOOGLE WEB SEARCH
- Text searches default to Google web search
- Microphone Searches default to Google Now (Android 4.1+)
- These settings can be changed in Appearance>Edit Widget


CUSTOM SEARCH ITEMS

3. The URL you will add to CSBW Custom search item: http://www.imdb.com/find?q=%s

This is a great widget, though the latest Android OS update forces all widgets to display with rounded corners, so if you add an outline to your search bar, the outline gets cut off in the corners, and it looks really weird. If you could rework the outlines so they don't get cut off, then I'd really appreciate it! :)

the app itself is okay but you're forced to watch a 30 seconds ads every single time you want to change something. if i have to spend more time watching ads than using the app to make customizations, then it's not very efficient (or fun) to use. 😐😑 edit: from 2 stars to 5 stars for the paid version without ads. i love the customization variations. 👍🏽

Overall pretty good, better than the default. Just wish I could use Duckduckgo instead of Google for the search. Otherwise, works well with the new Firefox mobile, and has built in presets to match the themes I've purchased from the same developer, primarily Rad Pack Pro, which is pretty rad to the max. Totally bitchin'.

Hi there, sorry about that. Please email me at natewren@gmail.com and I'll try to help out. It should work as long as Firefox is set as your default browser. Thanks for the feedback.
