This bug aims for opening the search bar. The following works are required: 1. Implement animation of opening search bar. When user push button to open the search bar, the bar should stretch from button to a text field centered at the center of the screen. 2. Then we should launch search app. The search app should be launched with fade-in animation, such that after loading, the search app appears on top of home screen, with text field shown just at the same position with homescreen.
Some correction: 1. When opening the bar, it should fade-in a semi-transparent black overlay to cover other parts of page. The text field in home app should be just a placeholder. 2. Fade-in animation of launching search app is not required. It should be shown immediately after loaded.
Please use an activity with empty search text to launch search app instead of app.launch().
I'll take this
Change the ownership to me.
