Searching with SearchManager


One of the firms behind the Open Handset Alliance—Google—has a teeny-weeny Web search service, one you might have heard of in passing. Given that, it’s not surprising that Android has some built-in search capabilities. Specifically, Android has baked in the notion of searching not only on the device for data, but over the air to Internet sources of data. Your applications can participate in the search process by triggering searches or perhaps by allowing your application’s data to be searched.
