I'm also in roughly the same position as Aniello with my application
TouchSearch [1]. I have a new version ready to be released but will
not throw away seven thumbs up to do it...

I wish I could just upload it to Extras now; it's a simple Desktop
Widget, I think seven people saying it is working fine is enough!
