User's Reivew

1 ★ Used to LOVE this app. I have a Kindle and the built in search bar defaults to the Silk browser and Bing search results. I loved this app because it allowed me to quickly search with the Google browser and I much prefer that to Silk or Bing. However, now when I swipe up it does nothing and long pressing opens up Alexa (which I didn't choose to install and it was forced on me). I can't get the search bar to open at all anymore. Such a shame because I used this multiple times daily!by L Blincoe on March 22, 2017
5 ★ There so many apps in my phone, so when i want to use certain apps. I'm forced to browse app drawer. It take so much time. But with this, my problem solved, i just need to type ,search and run certain apps with this apps. So easy. Plus this apps dont change my laucher, it just create shorcut and widget. Love you :)by akaun ku on October 21, 2016
4 ★ Love the elegant app. I only have Google chrome but not the Google app. Still, the search bar does open in chrome browser. But, unfortunately it does the search operation only when Chrome app is running. You cannot launch the searchbar alone. Also I cannot find any settings at all. Please fix the John C John on November 26, 2016
5 ★ It ain't no JOOOOOOKE !!! Plus you can finally delete ( if rooted) that dopey "google" app. The one where they give you news related to search results ? All I kept it for was the simplicity of the Google "bar" right there on first page. With this goofy lil thing. It does THAT and then some .. To simplify YOOOOOOO !!!by Anonymous on June 12, 2017
5 ★ So much better than the actual google app. No stupid tabs, tiles or other nonsense you have to wait to load when you tap to search. Just quick easy search. Worth paying for, Great job A_ O on September 17, 2017
1 ★ Ad infected crap, can not replace the Google bar. You still have to find a way to remove it yourselfby Anonymous on February 03, 2017
4 ★ Lots of options to search different apps or custom URL and customize the search bar. Ads in settings are extremely annoying. Widget didn't seem to work for me in (as in you can't actually type in the widget, it just opens a separate search bar at the top of the screen) but just using it from app icon in home screen works perfectly. It seems you can only get suggestion from one search at once but you can configure actions to switch to whichever search you want. Little bit tedious to set up but very Anonymous on October 31, 2017
3 ★ Nice app.. But can you please provide "in app" signing in to Google, so that we get our customized suggestions from Google. Currently the suggestions we are getting is General & mostly irrelevant..! Pleaseby HARP HARP on December 03, 2017
4 ★ Excellent app. I paid, and 3 features would get 5★ from me: have an instant paste-&-search option (instead of just pasting), have the device keyboard's autocorrect pane come up (it doesn't show suggested words and it feels like I'm typing a password), and pull up apps by typing any part of their name (I have to type "Hangouts" to get "Hangouts Dialer"; I can't type "Dialer" to pull it up).by Joshua Chandra on August 02, 2017
5 ★ Please make Google keyboard prediction work Please.. Not your fault but is there anyway to enable this?by Omer Akcelik on March 03, 2017

Questions & Answers

Q: What is an APK File?

A: Just like Windows (PC) systems use an .exe file for installing software, Android does the same. An APK file is the file format used for installing software on the Android operating system.

Q: If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

A: Yes, absolutely. The Play Store installs APKs it downloads from Google's servers, and sideloading from a site like goes through a very similar process, except you're the one performing the downloading and initiating the installation (sideloading).
As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've sideloaded, it will commence an update.

Q: Why can guarantee APK 100% safe?

A: Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Q: What are Android App permissions?

A: Apps require access to certain systems within your device. When you install an application, you are notified of all of the permissions required to run that application.
