I tend to agree. However, we tried to find a way to programmatically close the keyboard and didn't find any. Do you have a link or something to back this up?

This screen is reached from the global search button or the app's universal Action Bar. So it's reached from whatever screen was visible before.

Haha, nice! But there's a misunderstanding here, sorry if I wasn't clear enough: the action is supposed to close the screen, not just clear the search field. We did also talk about doing what you suggested, but that's for a different question. +1'ed for the effort though ;-)

comment How to handle pre-4.0 versions of Android when designing a layout?
Just wanted to say that github.com/ChristopheVersieux/HoloEverywhere worked effortlessly for me, using this in my homebrew app.

comment What is Ice Cream Sandwich's default design for expandable panels/ “pull down” handle?
I find that SlidingDrawer can be a fun component to use. In the app I'm currently building I use SlidingDrawer in the phone/portrait layouts to display a Fragment that in landscape would appear next to another layout. Works nicely.
