You can now search for all the things in the iMore Android app!
We've reached a pretty major milestone in the life of the iMore app for Android — you can now search for stories. And for forum threads. And for individual posts. Basically you can search for all the things.
And if it seems like this has been a long time coming, well, it has. When you're working with custom apps and custom back-ends and all the various parts that go into this sort of thing, it can take a little while. But that's also why we're super excited to finally roll this out. And it's not just for our app — the entire fleet of Mobile Nations apps has been updated.
If it's been a while since you've updated — and we know there are a lot of you out there who don't keep your apps updated like you should — then you might find a few more new features have made their way into production. We've got a floating action button to make commenting easier than ever. We've got app invites — so you can tell all your friends to use our apps! And we've got a ton of fixes behind the scenes. So be sure to update now!
What's next, you ask? Plenty. We've got more under-the-hood fixes that need to be done. Notifications are still in the works. Expect a decent redesign at some point. We'll update the podcast playback controls. And, of course, we'll have more cowbell. (Do we have any cowbell currently? Note to self: More cowbell.)
As always, thanks for giving our apps a shot. They're a great way to experience everything all of the Mobile Nations sites have to offer. If you've yet to try our apps, give 'em a shot! And if you have a free minute, we'd love for you to leave a review in Google Play.
Now go forth and search!

Phil is the father of two beautiful girls and is the Dad behind Modern Dad. Before that he spent seven years at the helm of Android Central. Before that he spent a decade in a newsroom of a two-time Pulitzer Prize-finalist newspaper. Before that — well, we don't talk much about those days.
