Since Droid2 & other Droids have no native phone-wide search app (ridiculous, right?) this app is essential. Search results should appear quickly. If not, check which email acct you are using with Android Market. I have a dedicated acct for my phone and an older acct that I use as well. App suddenly stopped giving results, wd just search endlessly. Think this happened after Gingerbread update. Uninstalled. At top of Market page used pulldown to select other older GMail acct. Now works again. Would be 5 stars if not for this glitch.
Impressive Picks up searches that I do not get through stock contact search or messaging. Categorizes searches intuitively. Pretty much exceed my expectations - will form my default search app. Very impressed. No need for wildcards as this is automatic i.e. input mati and it will return automatic as one of the results under contacts, files and messages. Bonus search for files and file extensions. So you basically get file, contact, sms and web. Very weak on app search - typed Whatsapp and Whats and in both cases received no results. However, app search is not what i downloaded this tool for so i am still very impressed with it.
An essential utility for your phone Ok, it might not be the fanciest GUI, but it does an excelente job at searching through your data. And it doesn't just search the main fields you would assume, it also searches the less important fields. I've been using this since years now and although I use it seldom, I always found the data I was looking for. One more star if the GUI would get a little bit revamped.
"Power" Search Indeed! :-) This truly is a "powerful" search app! It only searches a couple of the basics, but where it really shines, is in picking up the slack! I.e., it picks up where all the others leave off! For example, it pulled up my next doctor's appt for me, from my calendar. That's just plain cool! :-) It can search multiple email accts, calndrs, docs, texts, contacts, tweets (&fb?), music, etc, etc. I'll never own a device ever again and not have this app on it! This will be in my "New Device Setup Apps List"! :-)
Extremely useful Since Goggle and Somesung INTENTIONALLY don't have a phone wide only search function (where is that middle finger emoji when I need one) this unique app (try to find another one) is an absolute must. Still useful as of Android 6.0.1
Fantastic app for finding data! This is a great app! I use Business Calendar for appointments but it has a one year limit on searching the calendar for past appointments. With Power Search, I can locate appointments as far back as the data stored on my device. I have a Samsung Galaxy S2 and have found the searches to be quick and accurate. I'm using it to search calendar, contacts and texts only, though it will search more apps if you set it up in preferences to do so. My thanks to this developer for solving my searching dilemma!
