uninstalling I used to think this worked pretty good, but recently I discovered that some searches on my HTC desire Z were linked wrong. That is, the search indicates that a Contact is relevant, however, when I click on the contact, it brings me to some other, unrelated, contact. I can't rely on this, so as soon as I find a replacement universal search tool, I will be uninstalling this app.
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.
I've been using this to search the notes for my contacts on my Epic 4G, something I missed tremendously when coming from the Treo 700p. Essential.
Wow My instinct is to hunt down the android os developers and beat them with phones. Then find the google developers of docs and email and whip them with search strings... How brain dead can they be to over look searching partial strings and all possible data bases of personal relevance. This is PIM 101... It took 4 days of hunting, and another user to find "Power Search" , but found it. ... I feel guilty not paying for it, as it is free... Downsides: I haven't yet got it to search gmail, which it probably can with right setting. It didn't search doc files properly. Not sure about xls files, and will test later. It DOES search app data; it searched astrid but not "get the milk". But, what is the alternative? So far quick searching, but did hang once after trying to tweak a gmail account type. I think this happened because I don't understand proper gmail settings.
Slow searches and ni means to cancel a submitted search. Needs a lot of work. Consider an encrypted global index. Uninstalled.
A Must-have app The Android os which belongs to the messiah of search has a native search engine which is a deplorable junk. In this scenario Power Search is an absolute necessity. Without an app such as this I would have dumped the Android system long back. Thanks Power Search.
