    Default Search! Want to search your contacts, or go straight to a particular day in calendar?

    Search!

    Search adds some of the most requested features to the iPhone:
    1. Searching of contacts based on first name, last name, organisation, job title, department or notes.
    2. Searching of calendar events based on summary, location, or notes. (Currently does not include some recurring events, and does not use the special calendar time zone support. All events are displayed relative to the main phone time zone setting)
    3. Search allows you to dial up a date, and then jump straight to it in the iPhone Calendar application.

    This software is still beta, and has only been tested on 1.1.1 though it should work fine on 1.0.2 (we haven't specifically tested it on 1.0.2)

    Installation

    Search is available for download and manual installation. It is also available via Ste Packaging in Installer.app

    Download

    http://www.polarbearfarm.com/Search1_06_2b.zip

    What's Next

    • Complete contact information, contact pictures etc
    • Localisation for international users.
    • SMS searching.
    • Email Searching
    • Maybe more general search (Spotlight style) [This is a long shot!]

    Known Issues

    1. Go To Date doesn't go to date on the very first try after the initial installation. The second and subsequent times, it works fine.
    2. Searching using some unicode characters can result case sensitive search results.

    took a look o.0

    ok

    well i installed it via iBrickr (placed it in Applications folder)
    then set permissions with Finder to enable execute...

    i am on 1.0.2 unlocked with iUnlock-Fast (matching IMEI etc, working perfectly)

    and it works flawlessly besides the cheeky message at the beginning

    i'll test it a lil more, and make a decision..

    it looks like it searches both the SIM and phone contacts, is this true?

    It wasn't written specifically to search SIM contacts, it should search only those you can see in the phone app in the contacts screen.

    It hung up twice on the donate screen

    after that I made it work, but it only searches in the names, it would be really usefull if one could search the entire contact data, IE: email, address, etc.

    A humble suggestion, start nagging your potential user base for donations after the program is polished, its only my opinion, but to betatest your program and have to wait each time 5 secs (and an eventual hang up) is not OK in my book


    cheers!

    The timeout has been removed...

    Other contact information is planned. But calling is the top priority. (Contacts can already be searched in Mail, and SMS, so that's lower priority)

    So no one else has any feature requests or bugs to report?

    Just to let you know. We're working on adding more contact info. And looking into searching calendar events, sms messages, and possible email too.

    now that the delay is gone [EDIT: the delay is gone, the NAG is still there], let me reinstall it cheers.

    I see you have some free realstate at the initial screen, you could put basic ipod controls there, or shortcuts to other phone functions.

    For this suggestion alone you should send me a license:

    What I really would like to see, is a predictive dialing keyboard based on the standard letters found on the dialpad

    you start spelling the contact you want using the dialpad, and a list with all the matching contacts starts appearing, and then reducing while you enter more letters, once you find/select the desired contact, this screen flips (like cover art/theme lists) and shows the contact phones/emails. if you press a phone its dialed, if you press an email the email app (if configured) is launched

    You can put a SMS option too.


    cheers

    The request is still there, but there's no timeout period on it anymore.
