Yahoo has added search to its Aviate app, enabling users to search apps, contacts and the Web directly from their homescreen.

Yahoo says in a blog post, "Search on Aviate is your gateway to your apps, contacts and the Web, with Web results powered by Yahoo. Aviate will display all your search results directly on your homescreen, so you won’t have to open a browser or separate window."

The Aviate update is available in English to users in the United States and will be rolling out to supported devices over the next few days. It can be downloaded from Google Play.

Yahoo acquired Aviate nearly a year ago.
