Spotlight Feature Coming to iPhone? Oh Please Let it Be So!


Careful observation of one of Apple's presentation slides taken during last week's iPhone SDK event reveals a possible firmware 2.0 feature; SPOTLIGHT!In one slide depicting the Contacts list, a small search icon appears at the very top of the screen. Could this be Spotlight for iPhone? We'll see. It so, I know of many iPhone users who will dance through lawn sprinklers with glee, myself included.

Spotlight Feature Coming to iPhone? Oh Please Let it Be So!


ok, cool. That's over nine years behind the Palm devices. Frankly a telephone/contact book search would be stellar, but what about also searching appointments? Notes? Documents-you-cannot-edit?
Also what about a phone directory lookup from within Calendar so you could also have a phone number handy with an appointment?
Still a long way to go.

Yes! I completely agree. However cool and slick the current system is, it is inefficient with large phone books. I also agree with the directory look up. Even my old Treo 650 had that. Any word on when the 2.0 update might happen? Let's keep our fingers crossed!
