    I downloaded the Google Now Launcher a few months ago, on my Samsung Galaxy S3 with 2.3. It had some bugs but all I would have to do is restart the phone. Now I can’t download the new update, it’s saying “There is a problem parsing the package”. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I really do like this launcher.

    Is it just me or did the new Launcher also make Google Now/Voice Search take over with Blue Tooth car systems? Just reading your article made me put two and two together and realise it was after the Search App update on my phone that the car phone button started to give me Now instead of the old, clunky voice dial feature.
