The new Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 OS is really awesome; Google has added many new interesting features to it that it simply makes the OS to stand out of the crowd. The ICS has notable features like font system which is more appealing than the previous versions, allowing users to take screenshots on the Smartphone without installing any third party application or rooting the device, instant voice features transforms speech into text, Android Beam feature which is based upon NFC technology that can be used to exchange information between two Smartphones securely etc.
Apart from all this, Google has added something new to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that at least some people who already used ICS won’t like it and it is Google search bar. The Google search bar which is placed on all homescreens seems irritating to some people who actually doesn’t need it everywhere. And interestingly, Ice Cream Sandwich has no option to turn it off.
So, to get rid of this annoying Google search bar, a member from Xda developers has come up with a small trick that can be used to disable the search bar. To disable it, just go to the Settings-> Apps->All-> Google Search and hit disable. It will turn off Google search bar on every homescreen page though it makes the Google Search app not to work anymore.
