Lost the Voice search app on phone with last update and cannot get it back. Tried to download again but it says it is already installed. cannot reinstall. Did this happen to anyone else? Is there another app to replace this that is better?
Are you sure you lost the app, or did you just lose the widget? Reason I'm asking is that the small square widget that we had in Gingerbread was replaced by a bar-looking widget in ICS; Google Search and Voice Search are now combined on that bar-looking widget (the Google Search widget mentioned in the earlier post). Since you said that the Play Store said it was installed on the phone, have you verified that by going into Manage Apps and seeing if Voice Search is listed under All?
