If you are at all familiar with the Google Labs app Gesture Search, you’ll know that its aim is to make the amount of work needed for searching as minimal as possible. Keeping in line with that notion, the new version of Gesture Search released today (version 1.2) has added in a new ‘flip’ motion gesture. You need only motion your phone away from you and then back to activate the application where you can then search as usual by writing the characters out on the touchscreen.

Other improvements have been made to the app including bug fixes and accessibility support for enhanced usability. The app runs on Android 1.6 and up and can be found in the Market by following this link on over at the Google Labs page from your computer.
