Proper search for the iPhone

iphone-30-spotlightAs a search specialist I appreciate proper search features, also on the smartphone. For those of us remembering the PalmPilot back in 2000, it had a wonderful global search option, bringing up results from all applications in one screen. Perfect! And now we get this on the iPhone. In iPhone OS 3.0 coming this summer, Spotlight search will be standard. This is implemented as a new search screen to the left of the main screen, which brings up results from all applications in the same result set.
This is just perfect for quickly finding that contact you know lives in Sweden, or that SMS (or was it an email?) you wrote last week. I have always missed the PalmPilot’s powerful search, and now I can’t wait to see it coming to my phone – only 9 years later 🙂
