Google Now ported to Android 4.0 ICS

XDA Developer has stated in a blog post that Google Now can be ported to Andorid 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Google announed Google Now at Google I/O 2012 for Android 4.1 JellyBean and fortunately, XDA Developer febycv has figured out a way around this. modifying the ‘build.prop‘ allows users currently running an older version of Android to have access to Google Now as well as Google’s Privacy intrusions. XDA Forum Member dave7802 also noted that there was a modified version of the app available that didn’t require editing the build.prop.

For those of you wondering what Google Now is, here is a simply explanation as to what this is straight from Google’s Now page:

Google Now gets you just the right information at just the right time.
It tells you today’s weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you’re standing on the platform, or your favorite team’s score while they’re playing. And the best part? All of this happens automatically. Cards appear throughout the day at the moment you need them.
