I've started to use Android 4.X for the first time (after being a long term Android 2.3.X user) and some things are new to me.
One of the things that annoy me more is the "new Google Search Widget", which is displayed onto one of my Samsung Galaxy S3 4.1.2 desktop pages. It works nicely.
But, whenever I try to launch said Google search widget, Google annoys me with an (apparently unavoidable) reminder about joining Google Now. The only button they offer is a "next" button (which of course, I don't want to press).
I just dismiss this nagging screen pressing the "back butotn".
But as soon as I reopen the google search widget, the "join google now" reminder is there again. I'm afraid I'll press the "next" button in a distraction, and then I'll be "doomed forever".
So, is there any method to really get rid of this popup? I'll never join "Google Now", in the same manner I just avoid Google + at all costs.
